The world is going through an unprecedented crisis due to the global pandemic and the axis of global focus has revolved around that with renewed zeal and urgency due to the devastating humanitarian and economic crisis that ensued in the wake of the pandemic.
The global pandemic has reinforced the global focus on climate change as well due to the dual short-term and long-term effect it has on climate. This whole crisis has given people a fresh outlook, motivation, and mission to build a more sustainable and resilient world as a business and the usual attitude could land us in grave danger than the pandemic.
The Policy Times in association with The Shakti Plastics and Recyclean is organizing “World Sustainability Summit 2021” scheduled on 4-5 June 2021 to where business leaders, innovators, environmentalists, and policymakers will prepare a roadmap for ‘Ecosystem Restoration’ through industry and innovation.

The industry is one of the instrumental pillars of the global economic structure hence a sustainable industry-driven agenda to spark conducive synergy between people and planet and contribute positively towards realizing the collective vision of clean and green earth is necessary to provide direction for future action.
