In a letter addressed to Dr Pachauri, Mittal said “CII acknowledges the pioneering work done by the IPCC under your leadership in the last five years.”

“You are a very capable institution builder and it is your vision, which has taken IPCC to this level which is evident from the institution wining the highest accolade,” Mittal added.

“Through your work as Chairman IPCC and Director General TERI you have dedicated your life to issues of environment and climate change and its impact, particularly on the poor. Under your guidance, IPPC’s findings have been recognised by the global community and have forced them to accept that climate change is a reality. The prize indeed is recognition for the institution and also for the man who has dedicated his entire life to building strong institutions,” Mittal said, adding “Your achievement has made India and all Indians proud. We compliment your institutional calibre and hope that this recognition would bring the subject of climate change to the forefront.”

Al Gore and IPCC were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work educating the world about global warming and advocating for political action to stop it.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee characterised Gore as “the single individual” responsible for convincing world governments that climate change was real, caused by human activity, and posed a threat to society.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced on October 12 that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 is to be shared, in two equal parts, between the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.
