The Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) will organise Goa’s first International Environment and Sustainability Summit 2023 in the state from February 2 to 4. Almost 300 national and international manufacturers will attend the summit and discuss the best sustainability practices. As the plastic ban has come into effect, one major challenge for states has been to get manufacturers to process waste. The central government is also in the process of framing a manufacturer responsibility policy.

GSPCB chairman Mahesh Patil said that three MoUs will also be signed by Goa during the three-day event. The first will be with the Indian Green Business Centre for green rating of buildings in the state. The second MoU will be with Godrej industries to train personnel in the three municipalities of Sanquelim, Bicholim and Valpoi and from 30 panchayats over three years in sustainability practices and waste management.

The third MoU will be signed with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to rate industries in Goa. Another understating with The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri) is also in the offing to allow GSPCB employees to carry out their doctorate research, said Patil.

“Besides the industries, we will also invite students of science and environment science in Goa to attend the conference,” said environment minister Nilesh Cabral. The summit is being held at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium, Bambolim. Chief minister Pramod Sawant, Cabral and former MP and ex-railways and environment minister Suresh Prabhu will be present at the inaugural of the summit.
