Themed ‘ESG Walk The Talk’, the fifth consecutive edition of Social and Business Enterprise Responsible Awards & Summit, सबेरा SABERA 2022, was held on December 7th through a Gala event hosted at the UNESCO building, New Delhi. It is time for action beyond words and moving beyond compliances, making disclosures meaningful. While public commitments are a good first step, Bold actions are demanded by stakeholders who increasingly expect companies to publicly share their progress in achieving their sustainability commitments.
The awards acknowledged those catalyzing the transformative journey putting India on the road to development and highlighted best practices that can be replicated across the nation. The annual event attracted nationwide participation from the country’s biggest corporates, most impactful non-profits, and inspiring individuals through a record number of entries. The evening witnessed stories of impact and development aligned with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Environment Social and Governance (ESG) Principles.
Legacy Business heir Raj Mariwala shared her views on the importance of each one holding themselves responsible for social justice and humanity through a free-wheeling fireside chat with SABERA Founder and Curator, Suparnaa Chadda.
The occasion was also graced by the guest of honor, Dr. Bibek Debroy, Chairperson of the Economic Advisory Council to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has been a supporter of सबेरा SABERA since its inception in 2018.
Exemplifying सबेरा SABERA’s intent to recognize ‘GOOD’ by leaving no one behind, the event was anchored by a bright young girl, Palak Kumari, a beneficiary of the Voice of Slum school. There were also special performances by the children of the nonprofit Dance Out Of Poverty.
