3rd International Conference on Sustainability and Management Strategy (ICSMS) 2014 Nagpur

  • Conference Call
  • Con­fer­ence Theme

    India’s eco­nomic growth has passed through many phases over the past 60 years, and is now set to enter a new phase of devel­op­ment chris­tened by free and open com­pe­ti­tion after 20 years of lib­er­al­iza­tion. With a robust indus­trial growth, India is con­sid­ered as an emerg­ing eco­nomic power, but in recent times busi­ness envi­ron­ment is char­ac­ter­ized by grow­ing dis­par­ity, inequal­ity and widen­ing gaps between the rich and the poor, elite and the grass­roots, urban and rural etc. Pres­sures from var­i­ous stake­hold­ers are com­pelling busi­nesses to take proac­tive steps to ensure sus­tain­abil­ity in their oper­a­tions and busi­ness practices.

    These pres­sures can be from the exter­nal envi­ron­ment or from within the busi­nesses enter­prise. The key exter­nal envi­ron­men­tal influ­encers are cus­tomers and social activist groups who are increas­ingly becom­ing anx­ious about the impact of busi­nesses on the envi­ron­ment and soci­ety. Another strong moti­vat­ing exter­nal influ­ence is the fact that Indian busi­nesses, by fol­low­ing inter­na­tional sus­tain­abil­ity prac­tices, can increase their attrac­tive­ness to forge part­ner­ships glob­ally. Addi­tion­ally, the pres­sure to cre­ate and enhance value on a sus­tain­able basis comes from within the orga­ni­za­tions and from salient stakeholders.

    Sub­se­quently sus­tain­abil­ity can be used as a com­pet­i­tive advan­tage by intro­duc­ing inno­v­a­tive envi­ron­ment friendly prod­ucts that lead to addi­tional rev­enue streams and con­tributes to increase in brand equity. In the 21st Cen­tury, being sus­tain­able is no more an option in busi­ness but it is imper­a­tive to the growth of the com­pany and the share­holder value.

    Con­fer­ence Setup

    From this per­spec­tive, Insti­tute of Man­age­ment Tech­nol­ogy, Nag­pur in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­sity San Bernardino CSUSB and National Envi­ron­men­tal Engi­neer­ing Insti­ture NEERI Nag­pur is orga­niz­ing its 3rd Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Sus­tain­abil­ity and Man­age­ment Strat­egy.
