Aligning CSR policy to the UN’s sustainable development goals is a huge change project and needs input across the organization and buy-in at the executive level. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are about achieving development goals from an economic, social, and environmental perspective. SDGs are a response to this need: a universal, ambitious, sustainable development agenda involving education, health, environment, industry, justice, governance, cities among others.
With this background, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Pune jointly with CII-ITC Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development (CESD) is organizing the 2nd Edition of CII CSR-CSO BRIDGE 2018 which aims to identify and share practical, evidence-based solutions that can support the SDGs. The theme “The CSR Way to SDGs” will define how companies of all shapes and sizes can play a major role in driving a more sustainable, prosperous, and inclusive society while also meeting their corporate goals of generating value and achieving competitive advantage. In this view, we can think about CSR as a way to implement these goals at all levels.
The session is aimed at a varied audience from Industry (Preferably CSR Heads, Chief Sustainability Officers or HR and PR Heads), Academicians, Media, Government bodies, and NGOs or Voluntary organizations (CEOs, Resource Mobilization personnel).
Recognizing the huge requirement in monitoring the SDGs, this conference intends to serve as a forum for identifying needed resources/support/capacity building and possible collaboration with development partners, among others.
