Defining the Future As We Want 10th World CEO Sustainability Summit (WCSS)As in the past, prior to the main Summit, the first event to be held will be the World CEO Sustainability Summit on January 30, 2013. Started in 2004, the Summit has become an integral part of DSDS bringing together pre-eminent international and Indian CEOs to discuss the challenges businesses face in the context of sustainable development. Until date, the event has attracted over 1200 Indian and international CEOs, senior government representatives and thought leaders.
With the resource landscape likely to evolve unevenly in the coming decades, creating a wide variety of opportunities and threats for companies, sectors, countries, and regions, the overarching theme of the 10th WCSS will be ‘Resource Revolution – A Global Imperative and How Business Can Shape It’. The discussions will highlight the scope and complexity of the changes on the horizon including the risks posed by dwindling resource availability and how the public and private sectors can respond.
The Thematic Tracks, a novelty at DSDS 2013, will allow for discussions of considerable depth and detail on niche topics. The tracks, held simultaneously on themes in sync with the overall Summit theme and sub-themes, will be interspersed by plenaries.
