In recent years, there has been growing concern about the impact of human activities on the environment. This has led to increase attention towards green chemistry, pollution control, and climate change. These interconnected areas play a crucial role in promoting sustainable practices and mitigating the adverse effects of pollution and climate change. Green chemistry has gained momentum as a key approach to reduce the environmental impact of chemical processes and products. Recent trends include the development of innovative and eco-friendly technologies, such as biomaterials, renewable energy sources, and efficient waste management systems. Pollution control has witnessed advancements in monitoring and control technologies.

Real-time monitoring systems, remote sensing, and data analytics are being employed to detect pollution sources and assess air, water, and soil quality. Furthermore, pollution control measures play a vital role in mitigating the adverse effects of industrial activities on air, water, and soil quality. To combat pollution effectively, it is crucial to establish stringent regulatory frameworks and adopt advanced technologies that minimize emissions and optimize waste management practices. Ongoing research and development (R&D) in this domain are of utmost importance to ensure the preservation of our ecosystems and protect human health.

Pollution control faces various challenges, including quantification, mitigation and regulatory guidelines, especially for emerging pollutants, such as microplastics and personal care products and antibiotics. Climate change mitigation efforts have seen an increased focus on renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. The development of energy-efficient technologies, carbon capture and storage, and sustainable transportation systems are key trends in combating climate change. Moreover, international collaborations and agreements, such as the CBD-Conventions of Parties (COPs) have brought nations together to address climate change collectively. However, one of the challenges is the adoption of green technologies across industries.

Encouraging companies to invest in R&D of sustainable alternatives and overcoming economic barriers remains a challenge. In the present scenario, there is a need to develop climate- smart plants and climate-resilient agricultural practices. The translation of appropriate R&D leads into large-scale industrial applications remains a formidable challenge that necessitates innovative strategies for successful implementation, cost-effectiveness, and widespread adoption. The conference aims to enhance the global awareness on environmental issues and highlights the need for widespread adoption of sustainable practices.

Further, it will serve as a platform to delve into the pivotal and interconnected themes of green chemistry, pollution control, and climate change. Financial and political barriers, as well as resistance to change are the limiting factors in achieving the goal of circular economy. However, challenges persist, and concerted efforts are required to overcome them. The promotion of green technologies, continuous R&D on pollution remediation and a collective global commitment to combating climate change are vital for a sustainable future. By addressing these challenges, we can foster a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable planet for generations to come. Esteemed delegates, participants and stakeholders will convene to explore the latest trends and challenges in the themes of the conference. The conference seeks to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and inspire transformative solutions, bridging the gap between academia, policy development, and industry implementation.
