About Conference

Sustainable and inclusive development is a megatrend of contemporary times. India’s growth record has been robust and promising, but at the same time, challenging. A comprehensive outlook of development brings together extremely varied but interdependent notions on environmental protection, social inclusion, and welfare maximization.

The world economies are working their way to a decarbonized Green Economy, which results in improved human well-being and social equity while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. India highlighted the need for creating LiFE (Lifestyles for Environment) and climate actions to meet the Nationally Determined Contributions targets which require financial, technological, and capacity-building support from developed countries at COP27.

At the same time, increasing dynamics, complexities, and digital transformation of society and markets pose an ardent need to innovate Sustainable Business Models (SBMs). These models should be able to create, deliver, and capture value for all its stakeholders without depleting the natural, social, and economic capital. SBMs are inclusive of both sustainable accounting practices and socially responsible investment (SRI), which are essential for information on ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance).

It also incorporates green and sustainable marketing, which has been standing out as a contemporary business trend, and is able to identify best practices such as the use of sustainable advertising media, eco-labels, and sustainable advertising/packaging materials. It helps to retrieve marketing’s lost esteem in the eyes of the consumers, and also tries to minimize the “green gap”.

Conclusively, what we need to dwell upon, is the need to expand the extant of radical dichotomy of growth to include new categorizations that can better capture the essence of innovation in the new economy for a sustainable India. There has to be an integrated and realistic approach to working an economic model, which takes due consideration of environmental and social externalities, focuses on resource efficiency, and on ecosystems, as a building block of the economy.

With India serving the G20 presidency and our vision for it to be a global leader by 2047, it becomes essential for us to bring long-lasting positive changes in our approach to the environment, finance, market, and economy. To understand further and critically analyze the trajectory of India’s road towards sustainable growth, the organizing committee of the college invites research papers in all areas of sustainability and development.
