Sustainable enterprise award is an initiative to encourage the young innovators working in the field of Water, Agriculture and Recycling.
Water is one of the most scarce resources on earth today, Agriculture is slowly diminishing due to faster urbanization and recycling has become the need of the hour since managing the landfill effectively is the only way out for a greener environment.
- Water - Although 70% of the earth comprises water, only 2.5% of it is suitable for drinking and other industrial purposes. As human race moves forward, we need to find ways to replenish the existing sources of water for human use, and defeat water scarcity issues
- Agriculture - Majority of Indian population earns their livelihood from various sources of agriculture, but recently it has seen a shift and decline in the income ratios. As the gap in ratios widen, we need to create ways to empower and facilitate our farmers, the people who feed the country
- Recycling - One of the major challenges that the human race is going to face in future, is waste management. Battling a garbage avalanche is going to be tough, and we need to find ways to safeguard ourselves
