With an aim to build capacities and capabilities on climate change resilience among industry, CII with the support of DSM is organizing the Climate Leadership Conference. This is a platform to bring all relevant stakeholders including government, civil society, non-profit organizations together to debate on possible solutions for Indian industry.
The sessions are designed; keeping the latest climate change-related events in view to help Indian companies adopt faster climate mitigation and adaptation practices. The sessions will cover aspects of building disaster-resilient infrastructure and discuss the role of the government’s secretariat called Coalition for Disaster Risk Resilient Infrastructure. Supply chain and GHG inventorisation challenges will be discussed in detail along with examples of good practices. We will also understand some award-winning climate start-up ideas and their enabling eco-system.
With the commencement of the new government’s term and involvement of the former Environment Minister back in the MOEFCC’s affairs, a session is designed on the new government’s agenda for the immediate short-term as well as long-term. This session will particularly focus on the new climate initiatives thought of by the new government, their rollout and expectations from Indian companies.
