Since environmental considerations impact workforce productivity and consumption patterns, they are gaining prominence on the C-suite agenda, influencing corporate infrastructure, product branding, specialist recruitment, and ESG compliance. Within this context, this India Briefing magazine issue discusses India's green economy, outlining investment opportunities, challenges, and showcasing startups in the sector.
