Rahul Sharma, VP & Global Head, Manufacturing & Process Consulting Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said, “Today, Frost & Sullivan-TERI Sustainability Awards provide a global framework of evaluation and recognition for companies whose practices embody the triple bottom line and circular economy concepts. They empower businesses to identify new ways of growing sustainably while ensuring long-term stakeholder value.”
Adding further Mr. Sharma said, “Now, as Digitalization and Sustainability emerge as two of the most powerful market influencers in today’s corporate landscape, the Sustainability 4.0 Awards program evaluates how organizations are interweaving their Digitalization initiatives with their Sustainability strategies and provides them with a better understanding of what they need to do to be future-ready.”
Congratulating the Award winners, Dr Vibha Dhawan, Director General of TERI added, “Businesses reflect the changing values and changing economics, which the world is currently witnessing, by focusing on resource efficiency and clean energy. As businesses carry out such initiatives, we need to make sure that others learn about it and that the first movers become the pioneers to inspire action by many. This fits with the ethos of our partnership with Frost & Sullivan. We aspire to have a larger number of companies in the country moving to structured sustainability programs.”
Mr. Ajay Shankar, Chairperson, Jury Special Mention Awards, and Former Secretary, DIPP, Government of India and Distinguished Fellow, TERI mentioned, “The Special Mention Awards and the process represent a fundamental transformation towards a truly sustainable economy and society, taking place across the world.
