With an aim to sensitize students on the aspects concerning Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG), the Social, Entrepreneurship and Consulting Cell (SECC) of Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune organized ‘Samavesh – an ESG Conclave’ from the 4th to the 6th of August 2022.
Samavesh Conclave always brings to the forefront pertinent issues that have major implications for the future. This year, Samavesh served as a platform to do a deep dive into Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) as industry stalwarts shared the insights that they have gathered over their years of experience.
Through various fireside chats, keynote sessions and panel discussions the students got to look at different dimensions of ESG such as the new trends in ESG investing, rise in purpose driven brands, ESG as an evolving journey while not being a new concept, transparent governance, supply chain inclusion, whether developing India is ready for ESG and incorporating ESG values in the corporate world.
The conclave helped the students to not just look into the future but also have a very grounded approach as they got to participate in various competitions centered around ESG. We are grateful to get such a holistic learning experience through Samavesh 2022 and thank all those who have led to its immense success.
