SCCI Sustainability Mapping
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in India have conducted a Sustainability Mapping exercise with their industry members in India. This session will be focused on sharing their findings.
The industry focus on sustainability has been ongoing for some time and focus on the realisation of Agenda 2030 is increasing, fuelled by an urgency to address climate change issues, and the escalating global disparity, Inclusive and equitable growth include both business, environment, and people.
The need for collective action with a focus on green energy and energy efficient industrial processes is one of the main push factors for companies today on their growth journey.
Sustainability and innovation are cornerstones of the Sweden India partnership. The Joint Action Plan signed during Prime Minister Modi's visit to Sweden in 2018 is the key platform for a wide collaboration. Several initiatives and research projects covering energy, water, emissions control, and clean air are ongoing.
The discussions today on sustainability have an enlarged focus, not only on the company or industry in question but also the larger impact on the external environment. How to do this requires innovation, involvement, and long-term commitment. Each sector faces different challenges to moving forward.
Sharing best practices, and case studies will go a long way to creating the confidence required to make necessary shifts, and also providing required inputs to policy makers and other decision makers, about the specific support required to facilitate change.
