Environmental security and sustainability in 2020 will depend upon a wide spectrum of factors and issues coming together, ranging from water security, waste management, sustainability monitoring and cradle-to-cradle initiatives. Each in its own capacity will ensure that end practices are more accountable, and a measurable commitment to emission reduction is highlighted. The industry's profitability and business prospects will be increasingly linked with the ability to curb further impact to the environment through adherence to stringent performance procedures and responsible business practices.

Highlights of the briefing include an overview of mega industry trends emerging on the horizon, their impact on current businesses and the evolving opportunity landscape for industry participants.

This briefing will benefit manufacturers, distributors, technology innovators, service providers, think tanks and public agencies involved in policy and regulatory aspects by discussing emerging trends and providing an emerging picture of the future of the environmental industry.

'Concerns over mandatory reuse, recycling and zero liquid discharge continue to be at the top of the mind agenda of all industries dealing with questionable environmental footprints,' said program manager Konkana Khaund. 'Attention to water monitoring, resource monitoring, consolidating and applying smart solutions for managing data and resources within the environmental segments emerge as a major trend with significant future implications on opportunities for the value chain. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) considerations are raising high requirements for effective changes -- from simply addressing the pollution problem of an enterprise or sector to adjusting the industrial structure, promoting clean production and developing a circular economy. These factors are expected to intensify competition and eliminate low-end competitors that are not environmentally-friendly.'
