Good & Green Conclaves

As a Group, we are committed to creating an inclusive and greener India. In 2013, we introduced a series of annual conclaves designed to initiate conversations with relevant stakeholders to educate, share and learn about things that make a difference to our planet and us. Each conclave focuses on an issue around one of our Godrej Good & Green goals.

They bring together speakers and audiences from across industry, academia, advocacy, policy and the non-profit world.

The Good Conclave, 2017

On February 1, 2017, we hosted the second Good Conclave to present an overview of the entire skilling value chain and address the complexities of the marginalised communities we operate in.

The conclave represented diverse views from corporate, government, non-profits, academia and social enterprises. The panelist discussed the skill training approaches, policies, gaps and opportunities. Over 130 people participated in the conclave and interacted with industry experts. The conclave saw the release of a CSR in the skills sector report that provides data-based evidence of trends in skill training and the evident gaps.The Buddhan Theatre performed at the Conclave. The theatre uses the talents of the marginalised Chhara community as natural performers to conduct expressionist theatre that employs the people from the community and aims to bring social change.
