Prime minister Narendra Modi made a bold plea on friday for india to host the 33rd edition of the United Nations Climate Summit (COP33) in 2028, expressing confidence in his re-election to a third term in 2024. He made the remarks during the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as the Conference of the Parties (COP28), which was held in Dubai.

PM Modi delivered the statements during the conference's inaugural session, the World Climate Action Summit. He was seated on the stage beside COP28 President sultan Ahmed al-Jaber and the UNFCC Executive Secretary in a rare display of particular gesture. He was awarded the privilege of speaking during the COP28 opening ceremony.

“India is committed to the UN Framework for climate change process. That is why, from this stage, I propose to host COP33 Summit in india in 2028,” he said at the inauguration of the high-level segment of heads of state/heads of government of COP28. "Today, from this forum, I announce one more pro-planet, pro-active and positive initiative - Green Credit initiative...," PM Modi told the world leaders.

The government announced draught guidelines for the Green Credit Programme, an effort intended at incentivizing environmentally responsible practises and fostering a sustainable lifestyle known as 'LiFE' (Lifestyle for Environment), in July of this year.

"I hope you will all join us." We don't have much time to undo the mistakes of the previous century. A tiny segment of humanity indiscriminately exploited nature. However, it is hurting mankind as a whole, particularly the people of the Global South," prime minister Modi stated.

The Green Credit programme operates independently of the Carbon Credit Trading Scheme 2023. Green credit will enable individuals, companies, organisations, and states to conduct beneficial actions that will benefit the environment while also adding credits to their total.

PM Modi also mentioned that India's objective is to reduce emissions intensity by 45% by 2030, and that the government has resolved to expand the percentage of non-fossil fuel to 50%.

Highlighting the world's selfish tendencies, PM Modi made a forceful argument for the 'Global South' and urged for "unity" if the world wants to see a better and brighter future for future generations.

"We must work together." We must vow to work together, to help one another, to support one another. "We must ensure that all developing countries receive a fair share of the global carbon budget," he added.
