About the event

Our co-founder, Arpit Bhutani, had the honour of meeting His Excellency Pranab Mukherjee, the former President of India. He laid emphasis on Circular Economy being the need of the hour and how we must move away from the linear economic growth model. He shared his experiences from more than 5 decades of public service, especially when he held the Finance portfolio on multiple occasions and as the Chairman of G24 on several matters related to development, finance and sustainability. In a lively interaction, he gave us some concrete ideas and suggestions on steering forward Circular Innovation Lab.
