It is increasingly becoming evident that business success will be impacted by a range of social and environmental factors like growing scarcity of natural resources, rising social inequity, climate change and population expansion. Global covenants such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement provide useful frameworks to mitigate these risks and leverage new opportunities as they arise.

The Tata group has always looked at addressing social and environment challenges as integral to the way it does business, and been ahead of the curve. The foundation for a sustainable future is set out at the group level through the Tata Global Sustainability Council and the Tata Sustainability Policy, which are effectively complemented by the efforts of each Tata company. The next frontier, however, is moving our sustainability efforts from policy to practice and future proofing our businesses through effective sustainability implementation.

The theme of Tata Sustainability Conclave 2017 is ‘Future-proofing Business: Moving from Policy to Practice’ and will aim to disseminate learning, enable debate and share practice so that Tata companies translate these global and group frameworks into effective action.
For the Tata group, social and human development is a core activity, inspired by our founder Mr Jamsetji Tata who once said that “communities are not just another stakeholder in business but is in fact the very purpose of its existence”. The Sustainability Conclave for the Tata group, held from 12-14 January 2016, looked at recent global trends impacting us such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the COP 21 in Paris.

The conference attracted close to 100 participants representing diverse Tata companies, including senior leadership and members from different regions such as Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the US and Far East. The three-day conference - 12-14 January in Hyderabad - also had speakers sharing good practices in sustainability from the Tata group companies, Tata Trusts and from external experts. A series of mini-workshops, field visits and an award ceremony recognising winners of Tata Volunteering Weeks and Tata Sustainability Month were the other highlights.
