The first speaker for the panel was Ms. Anita Rajan, who advocated the importance of long-term survival with inclusive growth.

She focused on concepts varying from automation to energy consumption to urban crisis. The next speaker, Mr. Nimai Lila Das stressed on how it’s very easy to be eco-friendly but very difficult to be ego-friendly. He reinforced why ethics and values should always be at core and rest can be built around it. He made a strong point on how sustainability should be looked from a human perspective and not based on accounting principles. The third speaker for the day was Mr. Sandeep Roy Choudhury and he spoke in lengths about the LDC (Least Developed Countries) and the Paris Agreement.  He stated what matters is how you sell the idea. Mr. Indra Guha, spoke next on ecological bottom line in a broader sphere. He also statedthat investors drive the sustainability agenda.
