PANAJI: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that Goa aims to decarbonise all sectors of the economy by 2050.
“We have also been able to identify high potential areas where the introduction of appropriate renewable energy technologies, energy and resource-efficient practices, backed by the appropriate policy and regulatory measures can yield the maximum environmental, economic, and social returns,” the CM said.
The chief minister said other critical sectors, such as transport, industry, health, agriculture and fisheries, as well as food, are ready to implement a series of people-centric schemes, along with awareness drives and skilling programs to ensure faster adoption of clean technologies and sustainable practices.
“Be it in the form of a pilot demonstration of clean energy technologies and practices, an innovative service delivery model, or a long-term strategic partnership, I assure you of all possible assistance from the government of Goa,” Sawant added.
Sawant said his government was committed to transforming Goa’s tourism sector, making it among the first global green tourist hotspots.
“A strategic roadmap for this is already in place, and we will soon introduce several renewable energy and energy efficiency interventions to decarbonize this nature-driven industry,” he said.
