" The UN Millennium Fellowship brings together a range of diverse, enthusiastic, and creative people from around the world who are all passionate about making a positive change in society. I am excited to interact with all these people and learn from them. I also look forward to embarking on the journey of executing my Millennium Fellowship Project which would introduce me to new and interesting experiences, people, and organizations. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainable Consultancy Cell
We intend to build a Sustainable Consultancy Cell to address the lack of sustainable businesses in India. The movement around making one’s company green is almost exclusively undertaken by big Multinational Corporations and World-Wide Brands. However, the awareness and the means to make Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises and young startups sustainable are unavailable and non-affordable in most parts of India. An environmental & socially sustainable business is the need of the nation and would be key in meeting Sustainable Development Goals as well as reducing our contribution towards the climate crisis. The solution involves (1) Identifying an organization’s core social and environmental impacts (2) Creating a sustainability plan (3) Calculating the carbon footprint and helping the organization go carbon-neutral (4) Developing a sustainability report (5) Greening the supply chain and optimizing the product life cycle.
About the Millennium Fellow
Isha Ahlawat is a law student from New Delhi. Since childhood, she has nurtured a deep passion for environmental issues which she would be channeling into her Millennium Fellowship Project.
In the past, Isha has worked on several projects relating to criminal and reproductive justice, and environmental litigation. She hopes that the interdisciplinary skills she acquired from those endeavors will help her in building a successful project that can meaningfully contribute to the lives of those that it touches.
When she is not chasing deadlines, Isha loves to read, dance and swim.
