New Delhi – Delhi-based not-for-profit organisation Social Responsibility Council (SRC) today (25 Jun) organised first ‘Sustainable Environment and Energy Summit – 2019’ in New Delhi.
The event witnessed leading environment and energy professionals, academicians, senior government officials and legal experts from India and neighboring countries. The discussions centered around issues related to climate change, optimal energy utilisation for sustainable green business and mitigating rapid escalation in pollution levels.
Retired Supreme Court of India Judge Swatanter Kumar, Country Representative, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Vivek Saxena, Member of Asian Development Bank (ADB-CRP) Ajay Achyutrao Deshpande, Chief Justice of Bhutan Tshering Wangchuk and Supreme Court of Nepal’s Justice Ananda Mohan Bhattarai were present during the discussions.
“The environment around us is degrading every day and very rapidly. There is an urgent need not only to discuss how to counter this fast degradation of the environment but to find a feasible way to implement those plans,” Arun Khurana, Founder, and Director, SRC said.
“But all this cannot be done in isolation, which is why this summit is important. We had prominent academicians, senior government officials, as well as, environmental and legal experts to chart a course of action for the future,” Khurana said.
The summit also screened short films by noted wildlife and the environmental filmmaker Mike Pandey and Anand Arya.
