The European Union attaches the highest importance to the cooperation with India in the area of clean energy and climate action.
The EU and India are both working towards a clean energy transition, to become less dependent on energy import and to increase energy security, reliability and affordability of the energy supply. We are strongly committed
to increasing energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy in our overall energy mix. We are strongly committed to tackle the challenge of climate change and to implement the Paris Agreement.
With the European Green Deal, Europe has put clean energy and climate action at the top of its domestic and external agenda.
The EU is keen on cooperating and coordinating with India in international and multilateral climate and energy fora. We are both significant importers of energy, large economies and democratic societies.
The EU and India recognize climate change as one of the key threats to be addressed urgently by the international community. Science tells us that it is time to act.
The EU strategy on relations with India adopted in November 2018 proposes several concrete activities, aiming at making our energy and climate cooperation even stronger to face global challenges.
