5 reasons you cannot miss Conscious Collective
Building on its deep-rooted ethos of sustainability, Godrej & Boyce will be unveiling its pioneering initiative, the 'Conscious Collective' platform soon. The platform is a transformative step towards integrating sustainability into design and lifestyle choices. Conscious Collective strives to usher in an era underscored by design-led innovation – the foundation for which is built on the three pillars of sustainable materials, environment and built spaces.

The forthcoming two-day launch event, scheduled for December 9-10, 2023, symbolises a tribute to pioneers and innovators dedicated to reshaping our world into a greener, healthier, and more sustainable habitat for future generations.

Here’s what you can expect:
