"The recent crisis, which impacted the entire world, has brought several dramatic changes to the environment from the past 2 months with a steep fall in global carbon emissions. We have to now explore how - as per our conscious low consumption practices - we can ensure that this reduction is not transient but results in low carbon economy. This crisis has further made all of us to realise that nature is a source of solace, an inspiration, and a teacher and the utmost need to protect it.
This Environment Day, let us all come together and commit ourselves to simplest lifestyles as nature tends to act in the simplest way. I believe we still have the opportunity to reshape and redesign our world in a more sustainable way and I urge all global players, to not only work towards creating a greener environment, but also healthy lifestyles for all."
