Yadav appreciated the efforts made by Japan in bringing new technologies to India. “India and Japan may explore strengthening bilateral cooperation especially on circular economy and resource efficiency, low carbon technology, green hydrogen among others." Addressing the first India-Japan environment week, he said that to build a better world and a better future leaving no one behind, we should promote just and equitable growth for all in the world, in a sustainable, holistic, responsible, and inclusive manner. The minister added that LiFE is important for tackling environmental challenges and the crises of climate change, pollution, land degradation, and biodiversity loss.

Mission LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment), was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the presence of the UN Secretary General António Guterres, at the Statue of Unity, Ekta Nagar, Gujarat. First proposed by the Prime Minister at COP 26, Mission LiFE is envisioned as a global mass movement that will nudge individual and collective action to protect and preserve the environment.

Yadav said that India seeks to lead by example, and invites the global community to be a part of Mission LiFE for individual, family and community-based actions. “The need of the hour is to orient industrial development towards sustainable production and to be a tool for nudging the sustainable consumption."

Both countries agreed to promote cooperation as well as to work together in multilateral frameworks.
