This report unveils four powerful archetypes, aligned with India’s G20 vision, that hold the potential to accelerate India’s journey towards a future that thrives on low carbon growth, inclusivity, and active citizen participation.
India is on the cusp of a monumental journey to the forefront of the global stage, illuminating the path towards a future that embraces sustainability as an essential pillar to craft a thriving future rather than viewing it as a constraint to economic progress.
At the heart of India's growth agenda is the concept of inclusivity, elegantly encapsulated in the theme "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam," meaning "The whole world is one family". Drawing inspiration from India’s enlightened past and grand ambition for the future, this report presents Xynteo’s perspective on good growth - one that empowers a low-carbon economy, champions inclusive progress and precipitates community participation.
The archetypes showcased in this report align seamlessly with India’s G20 priorities, emphasising human-centric sustainable growth.
These four archetypes are not mere theoretical concepts; they are powerful catalysts designed to propel India’s sustainable human-centric growth forward. They complement and enhance existing government initiatives such as PM-Kusum, Digital India, and the drive to double farmer incomes, as well as pave the way for practical strategies and collaborative efforts, guiding policy makers, businesses, and citizens towards a shared vision of progress.
The report puts forth pragmatic blueprints to advance India's human-centric growth agenda on multiple fronts by pulling key levers - low-carbon models, inclusive progress, and participatory approaches. The real-world implications of embracing these archetypes are far-reaching. They encompass not only a fairer and more prosperous India but also hold the potential to ripple across the globe.
Transition finance collaborative
The absence of widely accepted taxonomy and national sectoral roadmaps has resulted in limited capital available for transition projects in hard-to-abate sectors.
Climate tech accelerator
Novel climate technologies face long development cycles due to lack of funding, technology benchmarking, pilot and scale-up support, as well as access to offtakers.
The agriculture sector is unable to realise its potential for DRE and carbon offsets due to smaller landholdings, multiple stakeholders and long project development cycles.
Mission life in action
Lack of awareness and inadequate incentives for consumers to adopt sustainable lifestyles, although ‘household’ consumption accounts for 72% of GHG.
