PTI, NEW DELHI:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said India is committed to protecting the environment and is doing everything required for it but expects others to also fulfil their commitments.

Modi said nations took a stand to come together at the 2015 COP-21 summit in Paris and work towards the common cause of sustaining the planet.

"As the world committed to bring about change, so did we. While the world was discussing 'inconvenient truth’, we translated it into ‘convenient action’. India believes in growth but is also committed to protecting the environment," he said at the World Sustainable Development Summit here.

India was on track to meet the 2030 Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), he said. The UN Sustainable Development Goals put us on the path of equality, equity and climate justice, he added.
