Sanrakshan: The Environment Conclave

Environmental Responsibility: The Roadmap to Environmental Sustainability

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it”- Robert Swan

Sanrakshan: The Environment Conclave

The estimates of world population stands at 9 billion by 2050 and the multiplication of existing pressures on natural resources is no secret. In this backdrop – the quote by Robert Swan, unfolds the increasing importance of Environmental Responsibility in ensuring sustainability. The central theme in the definition of sustainability is the interdependence between economic growth and environmental quality, and the need to ensure that both issues are protected. Many businesses have realised that acting in a socially and environmentally responsible way is more than just a legal duty. Corporate cultures are increasingly identifying themselves as environmentally aware and environmentally responsible.

A promotion of integrated sustainability efforts over generic is the key to progress. It entails the inclusion of all stakeholders: corporate, academicians, researchers, policy makers among others and an environmentally responsible citizen above all.

“The only cure for present world problem, including that of the natural environment, is for people to replace ignorance with knowledge, greed with generosity, and lack of respect for life with humanitarian values". ‘Sanrakshan’ brings together the broad range of voices, to deliberate on the various challenges and rewards of being environmentally responsible in contributing to the environment in all possible ways- practical, philosophical, scientific, financial or political.
