About my work

In CRB, we work on promoting responsible/sustainable business across different sectors and thematic areas in India. CRB takes a 360-degree view of sustainability giving equal emphasis on social, economic and environmental elements of sustainability - which is critical for a developing country like India. I have been leading the programmatic work of CRB on responsible/sustainable business since April 2016 and have worked with a number of partners to create scope/opportunities for businesses to promote responsible/sustainable business. Sustainable Consumption and Production (SDG12) is a key element of our programmatic activities and we have experience of promoting the same in a developing country/emerging economy perspective - and the possible strategies thereof. I feel there is a need for closer cooperation between southern experts and associations on SCP - so that we can learn from each other. This is perhaps an areas that be considered.
