3rd Edition of India Industry Water Conclave
5th Edition of FICCI Water Awards
The FICCI Water Mission was constituted in 2011 to advance policy dialogue and thought leadership in water use efficiency. The Mission in the last five years has focused on sharing success stories in water and wastewater management, conservation and efficiency sectors in order to encourage corporate and industry players to imbibe a culture of water conservation within their organizations. The Mission focuses on policy advocacy and thought leadership in both industrial water use efficiency and urban waste water management, with the objective of facilitating Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and sensitizing stakeholders on good business models and good practices.
It has also instituted the Annual Water Awards since 2012 to recognize exemplary contribution to water conservation and management by various stakeholders. The Awards were further extended to a full-fledged Conference titled ‘India Industry Water Conclave and Awards’ from year 2015.
