India Sustainability Leadership Summit Highlights:

At the India Sustainability Leadership Summit, the Thought Leadership panel chaired by Amb. Ajai Malhotra, Distinguished Fellow, TERI, highlighted the need for an early global bounce back to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Ms. Shloka Nath, Executive Director, India Climate Collaborative, and Head-Sustainability & Special Projects, Tata Trusts, emphasized the need to prioritize investment in skill-building, create a green finance strategy, and transition to clean energy. She also added that sustainability needs to go from “niche to mainstream,” and the focus should be on promoting domestic solar manufacturing and attracting additional investment in the renewable energy market. Mr. Atul Bagai, Country Head of UN Environment in India, said businesses must realize they can no longer pollute their way to profits and nature-based solutions and sustainability should be an integral part of any recovery package.

In the CEO Panel, Chairperson Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, TERI, set the context for the session by stressing the need to focus on sustainable development as we emerge from the havoc wreaked by the ongoing pandemic. Mr. R. Mukundan, Managing Director, Tata Chemicals Ltd., spoke about the need to start with consumers, build a transparent supply chain with a regulatory framework that ensures inclusivity, and make use of technology to accelerate the change. Mr. Sarwant Singh, Managing Partner & Regional Leader, Frost & Sullivan Middle East, Africa and South Asia, discussed the increasing adoption of electric vehicles and the emergence of trillion-dollar industries of the future, including the renewable energy sector and circular economy. He also highlighted the growing importance of innovating to zero and the rising adoption of the concept of smart cities in India with a vision of carbon-neutral factories and cities.

Mr. Amol Kotwal, Vice President, Industrial Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said,“The 11th edition of these awards focused on highlighting the significance of successfully integrating environmental, social and governance risks by award winners into their business operations and investment decisions. With the growing challenges and calls for a healthier ecosystem, all award winners showcased incredible commitment towards focusing on a sustainable, long-term future ahead of short-term gains. Frost & Sullivan and TERI are proud to recognize these companies for their ability to promote holistic development. We hope this will further motivate more organizations to push the boundaries of excellence.”

Dr. Mathur pointed out that,“Today, India is juxtaposed to overcome the dual challenges of a public healthcare crisis and tackle the adverse impacts of climate change. As we look towards a green recovery from the COVID economy meltdown, India needs new solutions. The Summit brought out that companies are now focusing on developing technologies that shall meet our future needs. Consumers are at the heart of this movement; companies will follow where consumers take them. Hence, it is important to tell consumers what is possible. We need to create excitement for people at large about sustainability.”

Congratulating the award winners, he called upon the Indian corporate leadership: “Short-term profitability has to be nurtured together with the long-term sustainability for recovering from the pandemic today as well as to put us onto the path of a low-carbon future in a 2040 or 2050 timeline. Businesses reflect the changing values and changing economics, which the world is currently witnessing, by focusing on resource efficiency and clean energy. As businesses carry out such initiatives, we need to make sure that others learn about it and the first-movers become the pioneers to inspire action by many.”
