Please join us for India and Sustainability Standards 2016 to be held at the India Habitat Centre (New Delhi) from 16-18 November, 2016,to be hosted and organised by the Centre for Responsible Business (CRB).
The journey of India and Sustainability Standards started with a seminar in 2014, conceived and organised by the Centre for Responsible Business (CRB) and subsequently developed into a 3-day international conference, ‘India & Sustainability Standards - International Dialogues and Conference’ in 2015 (http://sustainabilitystandards.in/). The conference drew 50 Indian and international partners and over 500 participants discussing the role of Sustainability Standards in supporting business’ contribution towards positive social, economic and environmental impacts. Various dialogues during the 2015 event have led to the subsequent formation of action-focused, multi-stakeholder discussion fora on sustainability in specific areas like water, finance and tourism.
The adoption and initiation of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development has provided both the impetus and the framework for greater attention to the issue of sustainable development. The role of business and its interface with SDGs has emerged as a critical area in this ‘agenda’ both at the international and national levels, and requires such wide ranging discussions. For India, these discussions would facilitate a discourse on how to ‘Make In India’ sustainable.
India and Sustainability Standards 2016 will create a similar opportunity for large and small Businesses, Standard Setters, Investors, Governments, Development Agencies, Academia and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to understand, engage and participate in this movement to create an ‘ecosystem for the uptake of standards for achieving Sustainable Development Goals in India and beyond in the supply and value chains’. This 4-day conference will comprise ‘thematic’ Workshops/ Roundtables/Seminars/Conventions for interested organisations to convene and co-create multi-stakeholder processes on relevant issues pertaining to interface of business and SDGs.
