Sustainability: Balancing the 3 E's - Economy, Environment & Ethics

As global perceptions change, sustainability is turning into a must for businesses. To meet the requirements of the present without sacrificing those of the future generations is to practice sustainability. Resources are scarce but needs are insatiable. It is absolutely necessary that ‘we’ must now not think of ways to only efficiently utilize these resources but also ways to replenish them.With this in mind, the theme for Sapience this year is based on balancing three core aspects of Sustainability - Economy, Environment, and Ethics. The deliberations for Sapience will cover the 3 E’s through the lens of managing and applying resources and studying financial, organizational, and market-related challenges that confront businesses.

Date: 6th and 7th September, 2022
