Leading voices at the 4th Edition of the Good Air Summit stressed the urgency of shifting towards cleaner, sustainable energy sources, coupled with active public involvement and lifestyle changes, to combat air pollution and enhance public health.

The summit, dedicated to addressing the pervasive issue of air pollution and its profound impact on public health, convened experts, policymakers, industry leaders, and advocates. Together, they explored innovative solutions and formed partnerships to promote clean air and sustainable development nationwide.

Justice Najmi Waziri, Head of Delhi Forest Committee & Former Judge (Green Judge) at Delhi High Court, underscored the individual responsibility in safeguarding the environment, stating, "Every citizen holds the power to instigate change and lead mass movements for environmental preservation."

Air pollution presents a grave threat to human health and environmental stability, with detrimental effects on respiratory health, cardiovascular function, and overall well-being. Recent research indicates that air pollutants can exacerbate chronic illnesses and impair cognitive function, especially among vulnerable groups.

Following the summit, the Good Air Awards recognized exemplary efforts in renewable energy, clean mobility, green infrastructure, sustainable urban planning, waste management, and public air purification initiatives.

Kamal Narayan, CEO of IHW Council, highlighted the summit's role in driving concrete action against air pollution at local, national, and global levels. He emphasized the importance of harnessing greener fuels and sustainable energy sources to propel transformative change towards a healthier, more sustainable future.

The Good Air Awards celebrated organizations like MG Motor India, AKUMS Drugs and Pharmaceuticals, The United Educational and Social Welfare Trust, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Limited, and Saytrees Environment Trust, among others, for their outstanding contributions to environmental protection.
