Global warming and its impact on humanity has captured the attention of businesses and governments across the world. It is now widely acknowledged that the stakes in the fight against global warming are higher than ever. Hence, pursuit of sustainability is no longer negotiable.
Sustainability has been at the core of G&B for decades and as a result, it has become deeply embedded into its very being. Mr. J.N. Godrej, in a Q&A shares with us his views on what needs to be done at global, national, and business levels to have a livable planet for future generations. Supporting his commitment to a sustainable future are the stories such as global cooling prize by Suhas Kulkarni, clean air for workspaces by Pravin Rawool and managing ground water using IoT by Tejashree Joshi. Ms. Nyrika Holkar highlights how biases can limit potential and the appropriate measures required to foster an inclusive, empowered and dynamic tomorrow. Congratulations to Anup Mathew and Shashi Ray for being recognized for promoting green buildings and construction in India, as narrated by Elizabeth. Exports are essential for having sustainable businesses. Surendra Vaidya of Godrej Aerospace tells us what it takes to join the supply chain of Boeing, USA, the aerospace giant; an extremely arduous journey. Further, Godrej Locks has established a business relationship with Master lock, a market leader in padlocks in USA. Both of these are future positive initiatives. Our Integrated Project team carried out the interiors of Hero Electric vehicles’ corporate office, Gurugram, which were much appreciated by the client as shared by NSN Moorthy and Diptendu. All these stories are about building new capabilities for making our businesses sustainable.
Our women leaders have shared their views on International Women’s Day, which are worth a read. Increased diversity in gender and in expressions always leads to richer conversations for better outcomes. By remembering Drs. Mrs. & Mr. Bhatia, we celebrate their six-decade long services to Godrejiites. Listening to music is therapeutic, says Avanti Nerurkar. We need to combat stress by listening to more of it. Shweta, Godrej Archives, aptly summarizes Prof. W. Mazzarella’ s talk on the Mad Men of Bombay, a great read on Indian advertising in the 70s and 80s.
