The growing appetite of humanity is fuelling a resource deficient economy with impacts of climate change, water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, poor air quality, poverty, health issues and many more. The pandemic along with the amplifying challenge of climate change has demonstrated the urgent need for action for achieving sustainability. In this regard, CII in partnership with Hindustan Zinc Limited (HZL) is organising a series of webinars on Actions for Sustainability that will focus on topics like Climate Action, Innovation for Decarbonisation, Nature Based Solutions, Sustainable Lifestyle, Water Security and Evolving Landscape of Non-Financial Reporting. These webinars will be held as a run-up to and beyond 17th Sustainability Summit
In the series of six webinars, the fifth webinar is focused on Water Security: Risks & Opportunities on 30 August. Water is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development and healthy ecosystems. The gap between water supply and demand is increasing which is adding to urgency of water security. The panel discussion will thereby focus on integration of water risk into corporate strategies, develop opportunities to improve water resource management and collective action required to ensure water security for all.
