As per report Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday received the United Nations' highest environmental honor 'Champions of The Earth Award' at a special ceremony in New Delhi. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres presented the award to PM Modi at the event in Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra. After receiving the award, the PM said Indians were committed to save the environment. 



PM said "Climate and calamity are directly related to culture; till climate is not the focus of culture, calamity cannot be prevented". Accordingly the honor was bestowed upon the PM for his leadership of the International Solar Alliance and “unprecedented pledge” to put an end to single use plastic by 2022. Besides the PM, five other individuals and organizations will also be awarded. Before presenting the award, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said PM Modi "recognizes that climate change poses a direct existential threat to us, where other leaders also recognize, know and understand, but the difference is that he not only recognizes but acts too."
