With an objective to attain sustainability in the sector, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) commenced the second phase of its environment lecture series on October 9 on a virtual platform.
The tri-lecture series aims to disseminate knowledge on the industry landscape concerning BS-VI norms from a lens of policies, regulations, principles, concepts, design, technology, pollution prevention, and climate change.
The lecture primarily focused on the key takeaways of the auto industry with regards to BS-VI emissions norms mandated from April 2020 this year. It provided an overview of challenges and innovative solutions the industry developed during its journey towards migration to BS-VI.
The session focused on planning and execution and the need of having an affordable, safer and environmentally benign indigenous research solution. The panelists jointly agreed that for a cleaner environment and to regulate the output of air pollutants from the internal combustion engine and spark-ignition engine equipment, BS VI emissions is a huge step forward.
Mr Prashant K Banerjee, Executive Director, SIAM, said “The Indian auto industry has worked dedicatedly in alliance with the government to implement BS-VI in the record time, thereby bringing Indian emission norms at par with the international standards. SIAM has been continuously working towards creating a better tomorrow and building the nation responsibly. Further reinforcing our commitment SIAM, yet again, is happy to be able to provide a stage to bring the Industry stakeholders together.”
