The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the CII Triveni Water Institute worked together to create the award, which highlights the recognition’s importance and legitimacy concerning India’s larger water management and corporate social responsibility landscape.
Anil Kakodkar, a former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, chaired the jury, which used a review process that was scientific, methodical, data-driven, and metric-focused throughout three rounds to choose the winners.
