Sustainable Future: Technology & Policy Action to Mitigate Climate Change

About the Conference

A day-long conference comprising two parallel tracks and serving as a build-up to the three-day IFAT India 2024 trade fair on water, sewage, solid waste, and recycling, this conference will be held on 15 October 2024 at Bombay Exhibition Center, Mumbai.

As the world grapples with a future combatting industry-induced climate change, it is incumbent on India, more specifically industry, armed with well-designed & well-intentioned legislation, and new-age innovation, to neutralise the growing waste menace. Our agenda examines waste management from the lens of prevention, circularity, sustainability, digital transformation, legislation, and investment with sectoral sneak-peaks at plastic, tyre & rubber, textile & fashion, and end-of-life vehicles.
