Union Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has asked businesses to adopt a sustainable and green approach in business practices.

He also urged them to use the forum of B20 along with G20 to look at how we can collectively work towards a sustainable and equitable future agenda, a Commerce Ministry release said on Monday (23 January).

Goyal was addressing the Inception Meeting of Business 20 (B20), the official G20 dialogue forum with the global business community in Gujarat's Gandhinagar today.

He said that through the theme of G20 in India- ‘one earth one family one future’ - we wished to inspire the world to care for each other, to have a greater degree of dialogue and greater concern for the planet and the future of our children.

The minister highlighted that India had always stood for sustainable development.

He mentioned that it was one of the top five countries in the world in terms of adopting and implementing environmental goals.

India regularly files UNFCCC report and has already exceeded its goal for 2030, of having a 40 percent share of renewable energy in its installed capacity in 2021.

India takes each sustainable development goal very seriously, he said.
