Conclave Theme :
Innovation for sustainability has become the call of time as it involves making intentional changes to organizational products or processes that produce environmental and/ or social benefits as well as economic value. The business leaders of this era believe innovation will help their companies make dramatic improvements to their environmental and social impacts. And they want academic insights into the mechanisms and best practices that drive innovation and sustainable development. Sustainability is a mother lode of organizational and technological innovations that yield both bottom-line and top-line returns. Hence we find that smart companies now treat sustainability as innovation’s new frontier. As said by Grete Bridgewater, Director, Environmental Services for Canadian Pacific “The combination of innovation, sustainability and profitability is powerful.”: If research can unlock the potential in our organizations to view our business models differently and encourage sustainable innovation in a meaningful way, then we will learn, adapt and lead change. Sustainable companies think long term. They forge strong relationships with employees and members of the community. They find ways to reduce the amount of natural resources they consume and the amount of waste and pollution they produce. As a result, sustainable companies survive shocks like global recessions, worker strikes, executive scandals and boycotts by environmental activists.
The researchers and practioners from diverse disciplines have focused their attention to understand the interplay between business, innovation & sustainability. This will address the issues related to the rational management of human, natural, and economic resources that aims to satisfy the essential needs of humanity in the very long term.
