CRB's India conference to promote sustainability

Nov '15
Centre for Responsible Business (CRB), an organisation promoting sustainability across various industries in India, will host an international sustainability conference titled ‘India and Sustainability Standards’ from 18-20 November, 2015 in New Delhi.

The conference aims to develop a roadmap for enhancing sustainability in the value chain across industries, including the textile and garment industry. Themes on ‘Responsible Cotton’ and ‘Responsible Business in the Apparel and Textiles Sector’ are among the major highlights of the conference.

The 2015 conference is a continuation of the tradition started in 2014 by the organisation. It seeks to provide platform for stakeholders across various industries to develop a future course of action on sustainability issues, according to the information given on the website of the conference.

Elaborating on the need for sustainability standards in India, the website says, “India faces major environmental and social challenges, such as poverty, pollution, education, health, resource distribution and inequality. The growing economy and growing pace of production and consumption makes India a global marketplace as well as a key stakeholder in sustainability challenges and solutions. Stakeholders within and outside India are increasingly looking to how to make standards effective in India and bring Indian perspectives into global standards.”

“The moment has come for key stakeholders within and outside India to come together to take stock of the current situations and plot a course for how large companies and SMEs in India should use voluntary sustainability standards and collaborative initiatives,” it adds.

CRB partners with stakeholders across the entire global value chain – national and transnational brands and companies, manufacturers and suppliers (SMEs), national and international organisations and governments — as they champion and drive  towards a more sustainable and responsible future. (MCJ)
