The Supply Chain and Sustainability Committees will hold a joint meeting on the topic of “Sustainability in End-To-End Value Chain”.


Sustainability is not a buzz word anymore. It is permeating through everything from Food, Fashion, Lifestyle beyond the carbon emission and pollution metrics. Sustainability today impacts on a wide range of ecological and human issues, from the preservation of natural resources to a commitment to human and societal wellbeing. While the awareness on sustainability is on a rise with Governments, Companies and Consumers. However, there are challenges and lots still to be done to make Sustainability take its roots.
In this session, we will invite speakers to talk with us on the overall evolving scenario on Sustainability right from Consumers to the Logistics industry and how our actions may lead to the implementation of real time change that will benefit the generations to come.
