The seminar witnessed the presence of Nayan Mitra, President, Sustainable business Council and Priyanka Mandal, the moderator of the seminar and an entrepreneur promoting sustainable development.
“Solid waste management is indeed a matter of great concern which requires urgent action. It not only affects life on land but also affects life under water and life on air. Needless to say if affects us on all levels. So, unless we manage them, waste will manage us. However India has a strong culture of waste recycling and upcycling from clothes to newspapers to bottles and packaging. It is heartening to see that a new business ecosystem is evolving around this. Govt has a crucial role to play to create awareness among people and take steps to minimize the waste from our ecosystem”, said Dr. Nayan Mitra, President, West Bengal sustainable business council of WICCI.
