In the face of profound challenges such as climate change, income inequality, depletion of natural resources, human rights issues, fair working conditions, pollution, racial injustice, and gender inequality at a global scale, individuals, organizations, and nations need to think differently and act differently. Developing sustainably is the only responsible and effective strategy for any organization be it in the public or private sector and for-profit or not-for-profit. The answer to the ‘How and What to Do’ part of developing sustainable strategies can be found in the UN Sustainable Development Goals which provide a critical framework for strategies that profitable growth while addressing a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, climate change and environmental protection. Though the sustainable development goals which are essentially a call to action for every nation on the planet to promote prosperity while protecting the planet were proposed by the United Nations in 2015 to be achieved by 2030, the world has little to show that these promises are transforming into reality even after seven years.
In today’s world which is witnessing calamitous events whether they are extreme climatic conditions, acute food shortages, rampant human rights violations, gender inequality, etc., are happening with sickening regularity, organizations are still debating whether to incorporate sustainability in their business strategy. There is a pressing need for value-driven frameworks for developing business strategies that not only provide profitable growth but also help address some of the world’s most pressing problems. Fortunately, a significant amount of management research is currently focused on sustainability and sustainable development goals which is having a positive societal impact. To bring forth current research on these topics and disseminate it for the greater good, Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management, Hyderabad is organizing the 5th International Conference in the ‘Impact of Current Events on the Future of Business’ series on the theme ‘Achieving Sustainable Development Goals: From Promise to Reality’.
