To this end, we work with various partners and constituencies to meet our goals. We convene the right stakeholders to provide direction to policy dialogue. Where there is not sufficient capacity, we attempt to bridge the gap through consultancies or through our own thought leadership. We priorities resource which involves identifying strategies that work best towards putting India towards a clean energy pathway. We strive to add value beyond our financial contribution to the field. The depth and quality of our partnerships is critical to our success.
