For the 5th edition of SABERA we propose the theme ESG: Walk the Talk. It isn’t just about words but moving beyond compliances and making disclosures meaningful. It is about action. While public commitments are a good first step, these actions are meaningless without tangible progress. Bold actions are demanded, with stakeholders increasingly expecting that companies publicly share their progress in achieving their sustainability commitments.
There would be 3 sub-themes or panels namely Environment with a focus on clean energy, Social with the focus on DEI and Governance with a focus on ethics & Responsibility
The annual event attracts nationwide participation by the country’s biggest corporates, most impactful non-profits and inspiring individuals. The awards acknowledge stories of impact and development aligned with UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Environment Social and Governance (ESG) Principles. There were over 80 entries for three main categories acknowledging SDG&ESG aligned initiatives, entities and individuals that have been reviewed this year. Two research-based nominations in Responsible Business and Promising Responsible Business will also be acknowledged among others.
Exemplifying सबेरा SABERA’s intent to recognize ‘GOOD’ by leaving no one behind, the event this year too will be anchored by a bright young girl from a remote village in India.
