Good & Green Conclaves

As a Group, we are committed to creating an inclusive and greener India. In 2013, we introduced a series of annual conclaves designed to initiate conversations with relevant stakeholders to educate, share and learn about things that make a difference to our planet and us. Each conclave focuses on an issue around one of our Godrej Good & Green goals.

They bring together speakers and audiences from across industry, academia, advocacy, policy and the non-profit world.

Waste Management Conclave, 2016

On May 9, 2016, we hosted the third annual Good & Green conclave on Waste Management to address the changing need of managing waste. The conclave highlighted policies for waste management, role of the government, industry and people, and the need for creative solutions.

The conclave included panel discussions and presentations around the status of the 63 million tonnes of waste produced per annum in India and the diverse models to tackle it. Several speakers emphasised the need for segregation of waste and decentralising the treatment process to achieve efficiency. The conclave featured technology innovations such as, Plasma Gasification, Biphasic Biomethanation and Bio-stabilisation that are used by government, industries and non-profits. The conclave brought together nearly two dozen companies, non-profits and educational institutions. Over 200 people participated in the conclave and interacted with experts.
