India's growth rate has reached 7.7 percent and is now poised to take this economic growth rate to double -digits. Its really incredible. India continues to remain one of the fastest growing economy in the world.

However, the recent trends in 'Global Warming' are alarming. Antarctica ice is melting faster than ever. ‘Climate Change' is becoming a major life-threatening challenge of our time. The weather seems to be getting wilder and fiercer. From devastating hurricanes to raging wildfires, droughts, ruinous floods, extreme temperatures, high pollution levels and most importantly worst water crisis in its history. Now business risk from Climate Change has become a top priority, on every Board agenda.

Recently, India celebrated as the host nation for this year’s World Environment Day on 5th June 2018, focusing on the theme #BeatPlasticPollution. So what our Corporate Boards can play a role?

Shortly, some of the senior Government Policy Makers, leading business and thought leaders will be joining together in New Delhi, to discuss market solutions for green economy model, and also to indentify Board's role and responsibilities for Sustainability.
