These cities belong tothe Climate Leadership Group or popularly known as C40 cities, that are working towards reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from goods and services.
Chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has recently signed an agreement with C40 Cities, declaring the State’s commitment to bring in zero-emission public transport vehicles.
Through this agreement, procurement of electric buses will be done at a cheaper rate than conventional buses and will help in creating an infrastructure to operate them.
The C40 Group will also help Chennai prepare a road map to achieve 100 per centelectrification of its public bus transportation system by providing it with resources to aid in decision making, technology and to plan the way forward.
