Even small and seemingly insignificant choices can help you save energy and cut down on your electricity bills. Here is one of those small choices that will go a long way.
A recent study by Nature Communications revealed that 3 million #Indians reside in the #Himalayas areas. These are vulnerable to glacial lake outburst floods from #ClimateChange. Better disaster preparedness & climate adaptation measures in the region are the need of the hour.
More talk. No real action. We've always known this about #Corporates. But new analyses of 24 multinationals' #sustainability pledges (several of them have an Indian footprint) find their pledges to be ambiguous, even misleading, & lacking in credibility. More here: https://bit.ly/3lQFuFQ
When will they know that we know?

CAG submitted comments and suggestions to the Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission on issues related to implementation of tariff 1D, ie, tariff revision for common spaces in multi tenement apartments in the state.
Our roads have been planned and built to cater to motorists, particularly private vehicles. Space and consideration for low carbon modes of commute (walking, cycling, and public transport) is not a priority. This is in spite of the fact that these are sustainable modes of transport - causing minimal pollution, taking little space, being affordable and accessible by all.
This year's #UnionBudget's focus under energy transition is on incentivising domestic #EV battery production & scrapping of old polluting vehicles. These are great except that we are still woefully dependent on #electricity from #fossilfuels. As a consequence, any EV also runs on fossil fuels. These "green growth" moves therefore might not be so green after all. Promoting #SustainableTransport (public transport, walking, cycling) would go a long way in reducing our use of fossil fuels and effecting a true #EnergyTransition.
A #DrivingLicence is a legal document that permits you to drive on the road. It is important that every young driver holds a valid driving licence. To every future driver out there, follow Diya on her journey in obtaining a driving licence in #TamilNadu.

The divide between rich & poor is heightened by the impacts of #ClimateChange, with marginalized communities facing disproportionate consequences. Bridging this gap through #ClimateAction is crucial for creating a more just & equitable world. #WorldDayOfSocialJustice
