Economic Change, by connecting the building blocks of Economics for India and the Globe.
One of the key elements of discussion this year would revolve around Sustainability. Economies are at the
edge of a global transformation. As resources like water, energy are getting limited, business strategies are
now sifting to a long term strategy for a short term world. The mission now is to redefine the duty of
corporates towards the society and changing it from responsibility to a leadership role. Across all sectors,
businesses have a responsibility towards the society, but how do we identify the borderline line between
responsibility and leadership? How do businesses transform themselves to a global thought leader and
contribute towards a better world.
There is lot of unpredictability and limited knowledge on sustainability across the globe and corporates here
can play a very vital role in providing the much needed consistency and leadership in controlling these issues.
In traditional corporate culture, social and environmental concerns have typically been considered to conflict
with financial goals. But in this rapidly changing world, corporate leaders can connect the pieces of the
puzzle and infuse social, environmental and economic demands as three pillars of sustainability, which is
also referred to as the triple bottom line. Leaders can guide towards a global partnership between
governments, businesses, the civil society, and individuals and eventually lead their organizations to growth
path with goodness.
This year at the Global Business Summit, global experts will exchange a pool of information on sustainable
business practices and discuss critical concerns pertaining to climate action and ecosystems, water, energy,
green buildings, solar, eco-wastes, mobility, education, industry and innovation and economic growth. The
forum will structure a program for sustainable business strategy and define the need for a purpose driven
