COVID-19 has brought with it, a wave of disruption for every fabric of human society and these ripples of disruption have in turn brought global economy at still and pushed it backwards. At the same time, the positive impact on environment due to break on wheels of economy also not remain unnoticed.
Considering the need and importance, the fourth edition of Symposium is curated with “Circular Economy for Green recovery” as central theme. Green recovery would not just help us to tackle environmental challenges like climate change, it would also help economic recovery through creation of jobs and opportunities. The deliberations at symposium involving all relevant stakeholders will surely trigger actions towards policy review, help organisations to realign their strategy and create an action plan for promoting climate neutral, competitive economy with right ingredients for green recovery.
With better control over pandemic, economies across globe have started to show signs of recovery. It is paramount that we must not get into trap of falling back to old ways. In this scenario, a transition to a CE is both a necessity and an opportunity, with the potential to offer long-lasting economic, environmental, and social benefits. We also need to be mindful of the long-term nature of the circular economy transition, global sustainability objectives and meeting the needs of future generations.
Keeping the above objectives in mind and driven by its vision to promote knowledge and action on Circular Economy, CE team at FICCI is contemplating discussions that reject on systemic actions that are needed to shift towards a more sustainable and resilient economy. With peddle on recovery of economy the society, businesses, and government shall reassess the design, consumption, and handling of resources to create efficient systems that enable circular economy.
