About ‘India and Sustainability Standards’

India and Sustainability Standards 2019

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).

The journey of India and Sustainability Standards: International Dialogues and Conference (ISS) conceptualized as a dialogue platform by the CRB – began in 2012. With overwhelming response and encouragement over the years from Indian and international partners, standard setters, large companies, micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), civil society supporters, policymakers and government agencies, media and delegates, ISS evolved into a India based international Multi-stakeholder Dialogue Platform, and as an annual flagship conference.

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 ISS, our endeavor, is 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.
