DPIIT Secretary releasing NPC annual report 2017-18

 

National Productivity Council (NPC) celebrated its 61st Foundation Day today. NPC observes foundation day as Productivity Day and celebrates National Productivity Week from February 12-18, 2019.

This year’s theme is “Circular Economy for Productivity & Sustainability” which represents a unique opportunity for circular business models for Make - Use - Return. It presents an opportunity for long term economic prospects and regeneration of materials. Transitioning to an efficient circular economy will benefit industry and all stakeholders now and in future.

Addressing the inaugural session in New Delhi, Secretary, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, Ramesh Abhishek said that the role of National Productivity Council is very important in the backdrop of the mammoth target of growth to raise the Indian economy to the level of USD 5 trillion by 2025 and USD 10 trillion by 2035. He said that our productivity must be comparable with our competitors in global and regional market value chain so that Indian products can remain competitive. The DPIIT Secretary asked the NPC to play a very critical role to enhance the overall productivity in the Indian industry and to work closely with industry associations. He also emphasized on the need of sensitization and creating awareness in industry, particularly MSMEs. Ramesh Abhishek commended DG, NPC, for her suggestions to work with FICCI on getting circular economy introduced and fast tracked. He said that thereishuge business opportunities in circular economy and the need of the hour is to work with industry to reduce use of natural resources. He said that transforming a linear economy into circular economy is a challenging task and our challenges are going to become even more daunting in the near future as we are looking at expanding our economy, the problem of waste, problem of resources will be even more severe. We have to work closely with industry to see how we can use those principles of reducing the use of natural resources, recycling and reuse and the concept of circular economy. Stressing on the cluster based approach, Ramesh Abhishek asked the NPC to identify some clusters.

Secretary, Department for Investment and Public Asset Management, Atanu Chakraborty and DG, NPC, Dr.Amita Prasad also addressed the inaugural session.

At series of functions are being organised between 12th to 18th February. Panel discussions on subjects like artificial intelligence by experts are also being organized to deliberate on the challenges, benefits and outcomes from implementation of circular economy.

Apart from workshopsin New Delhi, the 13 Regional Directorate of NPC at Kolkata, Chennai, Guwahati, Bhubaneshwar and Chandigarh will organise seminars and workshops in coordination with State Governments, State PSUs and Businesses. The 23 Local Productivity Councils spread across the country are also organizing workshops.

Ministries involved in production, trade, autonomous bodies, PSUs, apex institutions especially FICCI, industry associations have also been requested to observe productivity week.

The circular economy follows the principle of preservation and enhancement of natural capital by controlling finite stocks and balancing renewable resource flows. Circular economy has the potential to increase productivity and create jobs, whilst reducing carbon emissions and preserving valuable raw materials. It works by extending product life span through improved design and servicing and relocating waste from the end of the supply chain to the beginning – in effect, using resources more efficiently by using them over and over. The challenge lies in building circular economy knowledge and capacity.

Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change released a publication today in New Delhi on climate actions in India titled “India – Spearheading Climate Solutions”. This publication “India – Spearheading Climate Solutions” mentions the key actions India has taken under various sectors towards combating and adapting to climate change.

Releasing the publication Union Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that India has been one of the proactive countries in the world that has been working on multiple aspects of climate change at domestic as well as international level. Expressing happiness over the release Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that this publication not only highlights our achievements towards climate action but also our preparedness for future. “The initiatives captured in this publication are reflection of our commitment towards addressing climate change concerns while keeping a fine balance with the sustainable development priorities”, said the Union Minister.

Further, the Environment minister said that we all know that climate change has become a global problem and the continuing change in climate across the world is posing threat to our environment and society. “Today, it’s easy to get disheartened or fearful about climate change but, I always believe that there is a solution to every problem; you just need to find it.”, said Dr. Vardhan.

In the last four years, many clean and green development initiatives taken at both the state and national level have significantly contributed to the adaptation and mitigation of climate change. A number of new policies and initiatives in various sectors like e-mobility, green transportation, renewable energy, waste management, afforestation, water, etc. have also been introduced to minimise the impact of climate change.

In the recent past the Government of India has taken number of initiatives to combat the challenge of climate change. Some of the key initiatives of Government of India include the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), National Adaptation Fund on Climate Change (NAFCC), Climate Change Action Programme (CCAP) and State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC)

The ambitious goal of generating 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022, smart cities, electric vehicles, energy efficiency initiatives, leapfrogging from Bharat Stage -IV to Bharat Stage-VI emission norms by April 2020 etc. have been undertaken proactively to minimise the impact of climate change.

The renewable energy capacity stands at more than 74 GW today which includes about 25 GW from solar. India’s forest and tree cover has increased by 1 percent as compared to assessment of 2015. Schemes like UJALA for LED distribution has crossed the number of 320 million while UJJWALA for distributing clean cooking stoves to women below poverty line has covered more than 63 million households.

India recently submitted its Second Biennial Update Report (BUR) to UNFCCC in December 2018 as per the reporting obligations under the convention. The report brings out the fact that emission intensity of India’s GDP came down by 21% between 2005 & 2014 and India’s achievement of climate goal for pre-2020 period is on track.

 

Some of the major initiatives included in the publication are:

 

  1. India’s National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) which covers eight major missions on Solar, Enhanced Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Habitat, Water, Sustaining the Himalayan Ecosystem, Green India, Sustainable Agriculture and Strategic Knowledge on Climate Change

  2. International Solar Alliances (ISA)

  3. State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC)

  4. FAME Scheme – for E-mobility

  5. Atal Mission for Rejuvenation & Urban Transformation (AMRUT) – for Smart Cities

  6. Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana – for access to clean cooking fuel
