We want to work even more closely with India to mobilise a global action plan at COP26 because we both lead by example," said UK minister of state, foreign, commonwealth and development office Tariq Ahmad of Wimbledon.


UK Deputy High Commissioner Jan Thompson said Karnataka is leading India in the green initiative by bringing more EVs on roads, installing more charging stations and moving towards green energy.
"We have initiated more partnerships with the Karnataka government, especially for electric vehicle ecosystem building and also to reduce pollution. We also have a green fund for doing more investment in the space of tech startups in climate change and green energy," she said, and lauded the city level partnership with Bengaluru for launching the Clean Air Testbed Drive initiative on Church Street to reduce pollution.
