India has drawn world's attention with its high paced urbanization and industrialization. A renewed focus on sustainable growth and development has become imperative as India strives to maintain its high GDP growth rate to achieve developed country status by the year 2022. However, the flip side of higher economic growth has resulted in increased consumption of the natural resources, increased waste generation and hence ecological degradation.
With our increasing awareness on detrimental environmental effects of current waste disposal methods, there is a significant onus of accountability for effective waste management.
Realizing the need to overcome current challenges on waste management, CII- Godrej GBC is organizing the Seventh Edition of “Waste Management Summit 2016”. The summit is one of the flagship events of CII, providing an excellent platform for all stakeholders to address various issues and challenges of waste management, acclimatize new concepts as well as facilitating new business opportunities.
