Integration of Biodiversity

A Guidebook for Integration of Biodiversity: Spice Sector in The Western Ghats acts as a guide for the spice sector companies, especially those operating in The Western Ghats of India with respect to biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. The Western Ghats are one of the biodiversity hotspots that extend key ecosystem services to the whole of peninsular India. This region also houses many provisioning services that are of economic value. The important aspects covered are the inter-linkages between business and biodiversity, their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity and ecosystem services, and measures for management and monitoring.

Sustainable and Green Solutions for Climate Change - 3 March 2021

Climate change is the grave issue that people across the globe are dealing with over last few decades as it has deep impact on our planet’s ecosystem and ecology. Five years ago,196 countries signed The Paris Agreement, and collectively pledged to set out a global framework to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5°C.

India being one of the signatories to the agreement has committed for a decarbonised future, adopt carbon reduction methodologies and practices. Different initiatives are taken to achieve zero emission targets. Technological innovations and solutions are also critical to get the desired results.One such solution is sustainable manufacturing, where fewer natural resources are utilized and efforts are focused to reduce pollution and waste, recycle and reuse materials, and moderate emissions in their processes.

The conferencefocused on solutions for reducing carbon emissions and understand the best practices of Indian Industry in designing and manufacturing products from sustainable materials.

Clean Air Better Life

Clean and Green Economy For Air Pollution

In the absence of a large momentum for change required to move away from dominant rice-wheat monoculture in the breadbasket of India, management of rice straw inside the field (in-situ) through direct reuse by farmers and management outside the field (ex-situ) are the only practical choices for addressing the burning issue which causes peak pollution across severely polluted cities of the Indo-Gangetic plains. While in September 2020, we produced evidence of the change taking place in the heart of Punjab and Haryana across 102 villages intervened by CII, this report further focuses on ex-situ management solutions. These set of actionable solutions need to be scaled for addressing at least one third of the rice straw or approximately 13 million tonne rice straw across North Western States, while the remaining two third can be managed by farmers in-situ. In this report, these specific ex-situ use cases are analysed which are found to be actionable on ground, environmentally sound and economically viable for all stakeholders. Based on analysis of various delivery models along the supply chain of biomass management ecosystem, key recommendations are being made for scaling these solutions across North Western States
