On March 7, 2012, at the JW Mariott, Juhu, expertise, learning and innovation will converge at the CRY Corporate Social Responsibility Summit (http://www.cry.org/microsite/CCRS/index.html), with the aim to deepen corporate India’s engagement in social issues for a sustainable future. Organised by CRY – Child Rights and You – the nation’s leading child rights advocate, the summit will see representatives from some of India’s leading corporate houses in attendance at the JW Mariott, Juhu.

The key note speaker at the summit is John Elkington, who has been described by Business Week as the ‘dean of the corporate responsibility movement for three decades’. He coined the term ‘triple bottom line’ and has been one of the world’s greatest influencers on sustainability. Also present at the summit will be industry stalwarts like Kishor Chaukhar (MD Tata Industries), Nitin Paranjpe (Chairman HUL), Santosh Desai (MD Future Brands), TR Ramachandran (CEO Aviva), BS Nagesh (CEO Shopper’s Stop), Meena Kaushik (founder Quantum) and Rohini Nilekani.

There would also be sharing of findings from an independent research commissioned by CRY on consumer perceptions of CSR, as well as corporate expectations from CSR.
