Mumbai: Kaizzen, an integrated communication agency, has partnered with The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri), the not-for-profit, policy research organisation, as an outreach partner for World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS) 2022. WSDS is Teri’s annual flagship event, which will be held from 16-18 February.
Looking at the current planetary crisis which calls for global action, Teri has been holding a series of events for two decades to encourage and promote sustainable development and climate action around the globe, with a special emphasis on developing nations like India. The umbrella theme of this year is ‘Towards a Resilient Planet: Ensuring a Sustainable and Equitable Future.’
"By driving multi-stakeholder conversations, the World Sustainable Development Summit series seeks to play a constructivist role to reinforce commitment towards a more sustainable and equitable world," said Teri senior fellow, and associate director Dr Shailly Kedi. "The role of media and communications is extremely crucial to strengthen the momentum on sustainable development. Partnering with organizations such as Kaizzen is a step towards effectively amplifying the message."
The summit will focus on planetary health along with socioeconomic crises that the entire world is grappling with, primarily due to the pandemic. Together with the other countries, the event is aimed at drawing global measures towards sustainable development, environmental stewardship, poverty eradication measures, and health and education, which are crucial in achieving sustainability goals, said the statement. "As an outreach partner, Kaizzen will work along with the Teri communications team to strengthen media and social media outreach for WSDS 2022," it further said.
“Kaizzen is proud to partner with Teri’s prestigious World Sustainable Development Summit 2022. The age-old, celebrated event brings several countries together to find sustainable solutions towards a healthier planet. I believe that ESG will be a great focus area of the industry and the corporates this year," said Kaizzen CEO Vineet Handa. "As communications consultants, we have been an advocate of sustainability and therefore we fully resonate with this year’s WSDS theme which is futuristic, progressive, and highly ambitious.
