C’garh 1st to endorse UNFCCC Race to Zero campaign

Wednesday, 17 March 2021 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Health Minister T.S. Singh Deo on Tuesday announced the Chhattisgarh Health Department’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emission by 2050, by endorsing the UNFCCC’s global Race to Zero campaign.

“Climate change is one of the largest threats facing the planet today. Climate vulnerabilities make it necessary to frame a long-term plan to tackle this threat, and thus it is the duty of the health department to show leadership," he said in a press release.

"I am pleased to announce that Chhattisgarh is the first state in India to   commit to the health sector’s role to take steps to counter the impact of climate change and become net zero in  accordance with the Race to Zero campaign," he said.

Global Race to Zero is a prestigious UN cross-sectoral global campaign, necessary to meet global carbon reduction goals. This is a critical measure to ensure better living conditions for future generations.

Singh Deo also emphasized that the Chhattisgarh Health Department has already taken steps aligning with the UNFCCC global call.

“We have developed a comprehensive plan to tackle the health impact of climate change through our efforts on the State Action Plan for Climate Change and Human Health. The department has taken crucial steps like 100% solarization of the health centers to make them climate resilient and reduce their own carbon footprint,” he added.
