India and Sustainability Standards


The theme of the 2019, the sixth edition of CRB’s Flagship Annual Conference is ‘Market Dynamics & Social Dilemmas of Promoting Sustainable Business’. Integrating sustainability into global and local value chains is becoming increasingly common, not only for creating equitable and inclusive growth, but also for shared value creation. While many recognize these new developments, there is a need for a shift in mindsets on what we perceive as growth and development.

In the sixth edition of CRB’s conference (India and Sustainability Standards), our endeavor, is to convene a diverse set of stakeholders to understand and deliberate on the opportunities and challenges of promoting sustainable business in an emerging economy like India. Balancing the aspirations of a demographically young and expanding economy on one hand and meeting the needs of the underserved on the other hand is a complex challenge. Through our discussions, we aim to address these challenges, particularly now, as India, an emerging economy sets a course for the next five years in an integrated global economy.
