Call for Papers
The Indian Institute of Management Kashipur is hosting an international conference from 25th to 27th May 2018, on the theme of sustainable management. The conference is to be held with the objective of generating theoretical and practical insights on fostering sustainable practices in India.
About the Theme (Sustainable Management):
Sustainable Management is no longer considered a burden or an obligation, though its scope and significance is not fully understood or practised. The basic premise is that resources are not limitless; therefore our planet cannot survive mindless overexploitation of any one or more resources in the pursuit of sectarian interests. Sustainability is therefore the key, and sustainable management tends to achieve that by creating products and services that consume less resources and polluting even less. In the process, it addresses the three pillars of sustainability: protecting the environment, taking care of the needs of the present and future generations, as well the economy. But implementation of sustainable management demands a shift in focus, beliefs and actions with commensurate adjustments systems, processes, work methods and practices.
