Embracing eco-friendly manufacturing, efficient logistics, reduced waste, and responsible sourcing not only reduces environmental impact but also aligns with shifting consumer preferences. Sustainable practices enhance brand reputation, mitigate regulatory risks, and cut operational costs, making businesses more resilient and attractive to investors. In a rapidly evolving global landscape, sustainable innovation and ethical stewardship are essential for long-term success.

The Energy, Resources & Industrials sector plays a key role in powering the growth of the country—making its path to net-zero both critical and complex. Sustainable practices are vital for India's economic growth, energy security, and meeting global sustainability commitments, driving both competitiveness and a resilient, eco-conscious future. At the same time, such a transition must take place while preserving the system’s resiliency. Doing so requires an investment in emerging technologies, continued regulatory support, and a willingness to work collaboratively.

Sustainable finance can enhance resilience against environmental risks, attract responsible investors, and align with evolving regulatory frameworks. Moreover, it can promote inclusive growth, fostering trust and long-term stability in the sector. By integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles, India's financial industry can contribute to a greener, more equitable, and economically robust future.

The government and public service sector plays a pivotal role in driving systemic change. As their actions significantly impact natural resources, climate change, and public well-being, by embracing sustainability, they reduce carbon emissions, conserve resources, and protect ecosystems. Sustainable practices also lower operational costs, enhance public health, and create a healthier, more resilient society. Moreover, they signal a commitment to responsible stewardship, inspire the private sector, and improve the nation's global standing. In an era of increasing environmental challenges, it's imperative for this sector to lead by example and prioritise sustainable practices for a more sustainable future.Reducing emissions in the automotive sector means decarbonising the entire value chain—starting with the global vehicle fleet. By 2050, automakers are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 90 percent. To reach these aggressive targets, however, the entire value chain will need to be decarbonised.
