Mr. Yash Lohia will address how to bridge the gap between traditional business models and net zero aspirations of the future in his Keynote speech – sharing his personal story of how he became a bridge between the hopes of the next generation and the business models of the past.
Born in New Delhi, and raised in Thailand, Yash is the oldest son of Aloke Lohia, Founder of Indorama Ventures PCL (IVL), a sustainable chemical company with a consolidated 2021 revenue of US$14.6 billion. Headquartered in Thailand, the firm has more than 26,000 employees in more than 35 countries.
Yash’s career started in IVL’s Packaging division, overseeing the company’s operations across seven countries. Later setting up the first Philippines Packaging division in 2013, followed by working in the Fibers business in 2018. During this time, Yash built a personal passion for sustainability and wanted to make an impact on the chemicals industry and beyond. So, in 2019, he became IVL’s first-ever Chief Recycling Officer, and later IVL’s Chief Sustainability Officer. Since then, his vision has been instrumental in defining IVL’s path to Sustainability, including the ambition to recycle 50 billion polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles per year by 2025, and a US $1.5 billion investment to build the recycling infrastructure needed to divert waste from the marine environment.
Yash believes recycling will be a growth engine to drive industry and sustainability goals forward. And he will share his insights into how businesses can align sustainability performance with traditional metrics, like revenue and growth.
