“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a wave of transformation that people world-over are grappling with. At the same time, although inadvertently, the lockdown has brought about a remarkable reduction in overall carbon emissions and pollutions levels.


While the restrictions are being lifted, the industry should be encouraged to step back, reassess, and realign its strategies towards uplifting the economy in a sustainable manner.


It is no longer rational to delink economic growth from environmental sustainability and caring for nature, which presses the need for the government and the industry to collaborate on a low-carbon high-growth recovery plan.


In the coming months, Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) should play an effective role in setting and achieving targets that re-look at the efficiency of food, infrastructure, and industry ecosystems. With the right approach, the myriad of energy-efficient technologies available to us can be leveraged effectively to drive profitability and create new avenues for job creation.”
