Tentative Agenda Program Structure

Sustainable transition in Indian manufacturing refers to the shift towards environmentally and socially responsible practices in the production of goods. This includes reducing waste and emissions, conserving resources, and improving working conditions for employees. The Indian government has also introduced policies and schemes to support sustainable manufacturing practices, such as the National Mission on Transformative Mobility and Battery Storage, and the National Clean Energy Fund. The adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies, such as IoT and AI, is also playing a key role in enabling a more sustainable manufacturing ecosystem in India. The ever- evolving scenario still leaves an opportunity in terms of widespread adoption of sustainable practices and reducing the industry's impact on the environment.
