Tuesday, 14 June 2022 | PNS | Dehradun

The Uttarakhand State Council for Science and Technology (UCOST) director general Rajendra Dobhal said that it is responsibility of every individual to protect earth and to prove themselves as an asset to nature. He said this while speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural session of the two-day 12th Environment Summit organised by CII and UCOST.

The focus of the first day of the summit was on ecosystem restoration and moving towards circular economy for greener and sustainable living.

CII Uttarakhand chairperson Sonia Garg said that due to the triple planetary crisis, climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and the increase in pollution and waste, the need for action to protect the planet is now more important than ever. She further apprised that CII through its centres of excellence is helping businesses address climate change risks and identify opportunities through capacity building and advisory services.

Past chairman of CII Uttarakhand and convener of the panel on environment and sustainability, Rakesh Oberai said that since there is no alternative to earth, it is high time to take actions to tackle the challenges associated with climate, nature and society, and leading to a sustainable tomorrow.

Experts expressed their views later in sessions on ecosystem restoration and moving towards circular economy for greener and sustainable living. The first day of the summit was attended by over 70 delegates from industry, institutions, academia, NGO’s and experts in the area of environment.
