ABOUT THE EVENT

The conference will facilitate discussions on how India can reshape its policy framework and business ecosystems, with an objective to mainstream Resource Efficiency into its economy. The conference would be attended by policy makers, global think tanks, Indian and global industry leaders, and academia.

GLOBAL CONTEXT

Meeting the demand for natural resources in a sustainable way is one of the biggest challenges of our time; present trends are forcing societies to reconsider the way they produce and consume. As such, industry and business are key solution providers for enabling consumers to meet their economic needs while working towards making our economies more resource efficient and circular.

CII, along with GBC is engaged in a process of informing the G20 policy-makers of the forward trends within industries, with the perspective of supporting the development of an integrated international policy framework, that benefits from good practices and experiences of how businesses can promote resource efficiency activities globally.
