World Bank recognises that India is a now a global front runner  in the fight against climate change.

‘Environmental protection must for human rights’ says Hon'ble Mr. Justice Kurian Joseph, Judge, Supreme Court of India Directors' Conclave on Friday, 18th August at New Delhi “Making Boards Effective & Expanding Business Globally”.

As we countdown to our 27th IOD Foundation day in India, strategically India has moved to the forefront of governance challenges with robust Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016, SEBI (LODR) Regulations, 2015 and Companies Act, 2013. Recently, annual Performance Evaluation of individual directors, the Board and its committees has also been mandated to significantly enhance Board effectiveness. 

To discuss & debate, the current governance challenges before the industry, in this disruptive modern age of turbulence, Institute Of Directors (IOD), India is organizing the Directors’ Conclave and 27th IOD Annual Meet on Friday, 18th August 2017, at Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi. The Conclave is likely to be attended by over 400 corporate directors and executives. Dubai Multi Commodities Centre Authority (DMCC) is our Presenting Partner for the event. This year's Theme is 'Making Boards Effective & Expanding Business Globally'.

In today’s increasingly complex business environment, Boards are facing a hailstorm of regulatory, and management challenges, creating pressure to change, innovate and adopt new methods & technologies to stay relevant in the age of disruption and to deliver greater value to their business. While we expect Corporate Boards to be more engaged, more knowledgeable, more effective and even more resilient than in the past, their governance also needs a refreshing take in the modern age. 

The IOD Distinguished Fellowships and Leadership awards will also be conferred upon some of the distinguished leaders and policy makers for their outstanding contribution to business and society during the Conclave. Details are available on 

Last month, Institute Of Directors (IOD), India organised the ‘19th World Congress on Environment Management’. The theme was, ‘Managing Environment and Climate Change – Transitioning to a Sustainable Economy’. The famed Golden Peacock Awards for Environment Management, Occupational Health & Safety, Energy Efficiency and Eco- Innovation – 2017 were presented during the Congress. Over 400 experts, delegates and environmentalists from all over India attended, over two days. 

Supreme Court Judge Hon'ble Justice Kurian Joseph said environmental protection had become a matter of great concern for human rights and the right to live with dignity. 

Addressing a gathering of corporate delegates at the 19th Annual World Congress on Environment Management, Justice Joseph enunciated various constitutional provisions towards protection of the environment, forest and wildlife, and the state’s responsibility to safeguard the same for public good. He explained the Constitutional position in the form of Article 51 (A), i.e. Fundamental Duties. These duties are not legally enforceable, but are some kind of moral imperatives and cast a duty on citizens to care for their environment. He explained the concept of Climate Justice as outlined by the Prime Minister of India during the ‘COP 21’ Paris agreement. He also quoted His Holiness Dalai Lama saying that a clean environment is a fundamental right. He further outlined the functioning of the Green Tribunal Act, which was striking a balance between industrial development and conservation of nature.
