AB InBev and Network18 are set to present Season 2 of Sustainability 100+, a knowledge and action platform that aims to present an even greater force for positive change.

With the theme of “From Vision to Action: Together For A Sustainable Future”, Season 2 begins with two panel discussions of leaders from varied industries uniting to discuss how to build a sustainable today and for the next 100+ years.

The first discussion, ‘A CEO’s perspective on ESG challenges & opportunities – Sowing the seeds for long term growth’, involves a panel of corporate visionaries and thought leaders. The second discussion features a panel unpicking the ideas behind ‘Sustainability: Translating Ambitions to Actions’.

Apart from a rollcall of eminent panellists, the launch of season 2 will also be graced by keynote speeches from Jayant Sinha, MP and Chairperson of Standing Committee on Finance, and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Union Minister for Jal Shakti.

In its first season, Sustainability 100+ made strides in initiating a public discourse on sustainability, especially in focus areas of Climate Action, Water Stewardship, Circular Packaging and Smart Agriculture, the platform featured masterclasses on sustainability, stories of Sustainability Champions, and state-specific summits on sustainable initiatives.

It was capped by a four-hour long Sustainability100+ Summit, bringing together some of the country’s leading corporates and policymakers to deliver insights on how we can turn ideas for sustainability into action.

Network18 is set to reprise its role in helping shape the Sustainability100+ platform and nurturing dialogues on sustainability across different media channels.

Ashwin Kak, Head – Procurement and Sustainability, India and South East Asia at AB InBev, said, “In our commitment to evolve our ESG agenda and better address a changing world, we are elated to bring the second season of Sustainability 100+.

With a comprehensive agenda in place, the new season of the Sustainability100+ initiative aims to build consensus on the shape and form of our sustainability initiatives, by inviting stakeholders from media, corporate sector, academia and public sector to lend their support and wisdom to the creation of a new paradigm of sustainability.
