Foundation of Sustainability and Sustainability Oriented Innovation

In today's rapidly changing world, sustainability and sustainability-oriented innovation have emerged as imperative drivers for addressing the pressing challenges we face as a global community. The interconnected crises of climate change, resource depletion, social inequality, and ecosystem degradation have underscored the urgency of transitioning towards a more sustainable future. It is no longer sufficient to rely on traditional development and innovation models that prioritize short-term gains at the expense of long-term well-being.

Moving beyond the Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting required to do business, sustainability is about finding ways to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It encompasses not only environmental stewardship but also social equity and economic prosperity. Our current consumption, production, and resource use patterns are unsustainable and pushing planetary boundaries beyond their limits. We must fundamentally transform our systems, practices, and mindsets to align with sustainable principles. The need to innovate towards sustainability has become more critical than ever in a world that faces increasingly complex environmental, social, and economic challenges.

This program is curated to equip participants with the knowledge, tools, and strategies needed to navigate this transformative journey of sustainability. We will start the journey by understanding the reasons for change, and delve into the fundamental principles of sustainability, explore the role of innovation in driving positive change, and uncover the frameworks and approaches underpinning sustainability-oriented innovation. Through engaging discussions, real-world case studies, and interactive exercises, participants will understand the interconnectedness of sustainability and innovation and learn how to apply this knowledge to create sustainable, impactful solutions.
