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.

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

Air pollution is one of the major man-made environmental risks to public health. To address the rising concerns of deteriorating air quality, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with NITI Aayog launched the 'Cleaner Air Better Life Initiative' in November 2016. This report has been finalized during the fourth meeting of the task force held on 29 November 2017, considering all the inputs received from the members. Personal and freight mobility are important aspects of economic development and therefore create a significant footprint on the natural environment, especially on the ambient air quality. Under CII-NITI Aayog 'Cleaner Air Better Life Initiative', the task force on clean transportation has undertaken a consultative process to identify seven areas of action towards mitigation of air pollution in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR).
