Mahindra World City Jaipur, one of India’s premier integrated business cities, on Thursday became the first project in Asia to receive Stage 2 climate positive development certification from the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40). The Climate Positive Development Programme is a performance-based framework designed to create models for how cities can grow in low carbon ways.
Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, said, “Sustainability is an integral part of our ‘Rise’ philosophy and we are committed to driving sustainable practices across our businesses. The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group has contributed greatly towards implementing meaningful and sustainable policies and programmes that address the issue of global climate change. We as a Group are honoured to have received this certification.”
C40 Board President and UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change Michael R Bloomberg said, “The partnership between the Mahindra Group and Jaipur is a great example of how cities can grow and provide opportunities for people without polluting the planet or worsening the risks we face from climate change. Innovative projects like this can help us avoid the worst impacts of climate change while also improving many people’s lives, and I applaud the Mahindra Group, C40, and the city of Jaipur for their leadership.”
CS Rajan, Chief Secretary, Government of Rajasthan and Chairman, Mahindra World City, Jaipur said, “It is a proud moment for Mahindra World City, Jaipur as we have become Asia’s first and only participant in Stage 2 of the Climate Positive Development Programme of C40 cities. Given the increasing importance of climate change mitigation in a rapidly urbanizing country like India, Mahindra World City, Jaipur could serve as a model for development across emerging economies.”
The Climate Positive Development Programme was created to meet the pressing dual challenges of rapid urbanization and climate change. Part of the C40’s Sustainable Communities Initiative, the Programme was originally developed in partnership with the Clinton Climate Initiative and the US Green Building Council. It aims to create large-scale models and global good-practice examples of urban development that help mitigate climate change by reducing carbon emissions in an economically sustainable manner said the press release.
