Climate change and future Generations at Risk; Earth's globally averaged surface temperature is rising 

Join the leaders and experts at  the 19th World Congress on Environment Management on 7 - 8 July 2017 in Hyderabad (India) 

A fragmented and piecemeal approach to climate change, can be a recipe for disaster. World leaders have concluded that environmental concerns cannot be viewed in isolation, and we need to reconcile economic and environmental interests. Going green has assumed a whole new meaning, with corporate adopting green economy and using social media, to reach out to their consumers. 

As per our Hon'ble Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, 'It would be a "CRIME" to spoil the environment for future generations'.

To discuss & debate the current challenges before the Industry, Institute Of Directors (IOD), India is organizing the 19th World Congress on Environment Management (in association with TIMES NOW & ET NOW) on 7 - 8 July, 2017 at Hyderabad (India).
