Centre for Responsible Business CRB’s annual flagship conference
Centre for Responsible Business CRB’s annual flagship conference ‘India and Sustainability Standards: International Dialogues and Conference’ convenes international and Indian businesses, policymakers and all stakeholders to dialogue and develop roadmaps across issues and industry sectors – in supporting the momentum towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
CRB believes that sustainable business principles are a key ingredient that businesses of the future (and businesses with a purpose) should integrate into their enduring core values – that should ultimately inform their strategies and operations. In the seventh edition of India and Sustainability Standards: International Dialogues and Conference (ISS), they endeavoured to convene a diverse set of stakeholders to understand and deliberate on the opportunities and challenges of integrating sustainability in core business practices and strategies to build a resilient business in an uncertain world. For all stakeholders to come together to build back better with a renewed commitment to pursuing sustainable development. CRB believe every stakeholder has a vital role to play in the rebuilding process and only through collective efforts will be able to achieve a sustainable, inclusive and resilient recovery. Businesses, industry associations, government agencies, NGOs, academia, standards organisations, experts and citizens were invited to join this year. Some of the issues that took centre-stage this year include: • Green, Inclusive and Equitable Recovery • Global Solidarity and International Cooperation • Making Trade resilient and sustainable • Governance of Value Chains (local - regional - global) • India's ability and capacity to demonstrate leadership in 'building back better' • Inter-linkages between Business Resilience and Community Resilience • Preparedness to identify vulnerability and address discrimination • Mainstreaming sustainability into financing and investment decision-making • New and emerging (sustainable and circular) business models
