The Exchange, presented by Hindalco in collaboration with Xynteo, is a platform that brings together eminent leaders from Indian and global corporates, public policy, government, not-for-profits, and entrepreneurs, to solve pivotal challenges towards building a people- and planet-positive future.
Together 'India@2030: Scaling Good Growth' will showcase the sustainable and responsible practices that are required to scale Good Growth.
India is already a shining beacon of growth and development in the 21st century. Now, as a leader of Global South our collective voice must be a powerful advocate for people and planet-positive innovation, action, and impact.
We know our 2030 ambitions are bold, clear, and inspirational – but ambition will only get us part of the way to the future we seek. At home and abroad we will need partners to actively collaborate on systemic challenges; to embrace new ideas and realise new solutions; and to find new ways to balance the economic, social, and environmental needs of our world.
The Exchange is a powerful opportunity to build a more sustainable and future-fit India.
The programme is designed to bring together business leaders, policy makers, thought leaders and entrepreneurs for perspective shaping conversations, shaping action-orientated solutions, and to accelerate India’s ambitions for an inclusive and planet-positive future.
Objectives of the Exchange include:
- Tackling shared challenges to future-fit growth through immersive sessions
- Forging new, and reinforce existing, relationships for transformative collaborations
- Generating actionable outcomes that leverage the expertise of like-minded organisations
- Nurturing start-ups and change makers that are innovating for a sustainable and resilient India
To meet (India’s) sustainability goals, we have to think in new ways. To identify and showcase projects at frequent intervals that focus on decarbonisation, carbon capture, and the circular economy — projects that prove something works and can be scaled up.

The repercussions of climate change looms over our heads like the sword of Damocles. To quote Robert Swan, ‘The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.’ It is time for us to be that someone and save the planet.

The Marketplace is a curated experience, showcasing promising ventures that offer commercial solutions for India’s, and indeed the world’s, most pressing challenges. The Marketplace is a space that enables fostering meaningful opportunities and connections between entrepreneurs, innovators, technologists, change-makers, industry-shapers and investors.
The studios are interactive workshops that bring together key stakeholders in a workshop format, to find actionable and collaborative solutions to complex challenges.
Curated for diversity of perspectives and to incubate commercially-driven seed concepts for selected problems; participants co-create around ideas, forge unlikely partnerships, and discover how to accelerate impact.
