Launched in May, the commission has four members -- former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd, former United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-Moon, former vice chairman of Niti Aayog Arvind Panagariya, and global head and director of Climate Business, International Finance Corporation, Vivek Pathak. 

Rudd said, 'India's net zero ambitions are not just important for the global fight against climate change – they can also be a boon for the country's own sustainable and inclusive development.'

Ban Ki-moon, the current president and chair of the Global Green Growth Institute, said, 'The time is ripe for India to formalise and implement its 2030 and 2070 emission targets and to continue to strengthen them. India is already feeling some of the worst impacts from emissions and pollution, with extreme heat, floods, premature deaths and more.'

As the host of the G20 in 2023, India can showcase its action and encourage other countries to follow suit, cooperate and invest, he added.
