India is surging positively on the great strides of development which can be continued only if a proper environmental balance is sustained. Apart from judicious utilization of the available resources there is need to reduce pollution & other malevolent footprints. The sensitive and vigilant collaboration amongst relevant stakeholders including Industry, Government, Academia and Communities is required to pave the way for an all-inclusive, humane & environmentally sustainable development. Incorporating the use of the relevant modern tools, techniques and solutions that ensures environmental sustainability is the need of the hour.
Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been playing a vital role in supporting various affairs related to the sustainable & holistic development. In this context, CII is pleased to announce Environ Expo 2018 scheduled from 06th to 08th December 2018 at the Auto Cluster Exhibition Centre, Pune, India.
CII Environ Expo 2018 will be a dedicated Exhibition on Clean Energy, Environment Protection, e-Mobility & Waste Management. Conferences – 5th edition of CII Green Conclave, 6th edition of CII West Tech Summit & 3rd edition of CII Smart Manufacturing Conclave will be held alongside the Exhibition.
This significant initiative is being supported by State Government of Maharashtra as a ‘Host State’ along with other leading entities including Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-NEERI), Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), Gujarat Knowledge Application & Facilitation Centre (GKAFC) and Solar Power Developers Association (SPDA).
India is both a major energy producer & consumer. In a bid to ensure 8-10 per cent annual growth up to 2031, India needs to generate and supply 6 to 7 times more power from the present capacity. Nuclear energy can play an important role in augmenting the power generation capacity of the country. While first quarter of 2009 reported average growth, generation achievement during the period April 08 - Jan 09 has been 93.0% of the target. Wind energy is the fastest growing source of commercial energy in the world. And India, surprisingly enough, emerged as world's 5th largest wind energy producer. Aiming sustainable growth, India has targeted a generation capacity addition of 67000 MW in the National Electricity Plan an integral part of the Eleventh five year plan. Same on the heels, the capacity addition for 12th five year plan is estimated to be 60000 MW. With many initiatives from government, we are confident that India would achieve its target to light up life of each person residing in far flung areas in the next five year plan.
Humans have exploited the nature in accordance of our convenience often neglecting the basic tenets of the mutual co-existence. Due to undue pressure of overconsumption, population and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. Environmental Protection is an integral part of the overall development process and cannot be considered in isolation from it. Thus there is a serious need to undertake measures for protecting & conserving the environment in the most holistic way. Creating a robust eco-system comprising the varied stakeholders to initiate, implement and promote various environment friendly initiatives, adopting modern and updated technology putting less strain on the resources is the need of the hour. Thoughtful disposal of the waste generated from the civilian, medical & industrial activities, adopting 3R methodology may benefit in achieving the aim of conserving the nature. New initiatives such as Smart Cities Mission that reduces the strain on the conventional mediums and thus promotes environmental and societal sustainability needs to be implemented. Initiatives like Smart cities mission also contribute to an increased sense of responsibility on things such as disposing of waste, proper energy utilization etc.
Maharashtra has the largest economy in India. It is third-most urbanised state with urban population of 45% of whole population. Maharashtra contributes 25% of the country's industrial output and is the most indebted state in the country. Industries in Maharashtra include chemical and chemical products (17.6%), food and food products (16.1%), refined petroleum products (12.9%), machinery and equipment (8%), textiles (6.9%), basic metals (5.8%), motor vehicles (4.7%) and furniture (4.3%). Although its population makes Maharashtra one of the country's largest energy users, conservation mandates, mild weather in the largest population centres and strong environmental movements have kept its per capita energy use to one of the smallest of any Indian state. The high electricity demand of the state constitutes 13% of the total installed electricity generation capacity in India, which is mainly from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. Maharashtra is strongly working towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as mentioned appended ;
