Eight Indians have once again made their mark in the world’s renowned magazine Time in the list of 100 most influential people in the world for their contribution in the field of climate. Eight Indians and citizens of Indian origin have managed to make it to the list of 100 most influential people. These also include World Bank President Ajay Banga and Ola Electric co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal. It is noteworthy that American Time magazine has made a list of the hundred most influential people in the world working towards stopping climate change.
Giants from many fields including business and music are involved.
People associated with music, business and many other fields have been included in this list. Nine Americans of Indian origin have also been included in this. The Time 100 Climate list includes chief executive officers (CEOs), founders, philanthropists, musicians, policymakers and government officials from around the world. This list has been released before the United Nations Climate Change Conference starting from November 30 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Apart from Banga and Aggarwal, the list includes Rajiv J Shah, Chairman of The Rockefeller Foundation, Geeta Iyer, Founder and Chairman of Boston Common Asset Management, Jigar Shah, Director of the US Department of Energy Loan Program Office, Manoj Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Husk Power Systems, Seema Wadhwa, executive director of environmental management for Kaiser Permanente and Amit Kumar Sinha, managing director (MD) and CEO of Mahindra Lifespaces.
Time said in a statement that Banga, who became president of the World Bank in June, is starting a new mission for the organization to eradicate poverty while fighting climate change. There is no point in eradicating poverty if you cannot breathe and drink clean water, Banga said at the 2023 World Bank Group-IMF annual meeting in Morocco.
