Sustainability Summit

Every year on the 21st of February, FIIB celebrates its Founder’s Day in the honour of the Institute’s founder Mr. RK Shrivastava. For the past 4 years the college has been celebrating it by way of organizing a Sustainability Summit on this day. The Institute is one of the few business management schools in the world that have adopted Sustainability as a key pillar of its strategy and has a dedicated center of excellence for research and practice in this area, the Sustainability Development Center.

As a part of its mission statement the college has been trying to integrate sustainability into its daily administrative undertakings, academic inputs and student – driven activities gradually over the past few years. This Summit reinforces FIIB’s efforts in propagating sustainability in the education sector by creating an eco – system whereby it becomes a part of its DNA.

The Summit aims to bring together the worlds of academia, social sector and corporate sector to deliberate upon certain very critical issues that affect our everyday lives. Speakers from different organisations, both for-profit & not-for-profit, reflect and debate upon various factors that could put a halt to the destruction of our planet and eventually aim to come up with few solutions that may leave it in a better shape for the future generations.

This is the Institute’ s 4th year hosting the Annual Summit. Past Summits have included  Ms Anita M George (Regional Industry Director, Asia Infrastructure and Natural Resources at the International Finance Corporation, IFC), Dr. Annapurna Vancheswaran (Director-Sustainable Development Outreach at The Energy and Resources Institute, TERI, New Delhi), Padma Bhushan Mr. Devendra Raj Mehta (Founder and Chief Patron, Jaipurfoot), Dr. Ashok Khosla (Chairman –Development Alternatives), Mr. Mehmood Khan (Former Chief Innovation Officer – Unilever), Mr. Anshu Gupta  (Founder, Goonj), Mr. Nitin Gupta (Founder and CEO – Atterro Recycling) as speakers at the college summit.
