Sustainable development: an Indian perspective
by B. Karunakar
International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education (IJPEE), Vol. 10, No. 1, 2019

Abstract: The article discusses sustainable development from an Indian perspective. India's challenges are to achieve urban sustainability, improve public health and gender equality, as it builds infrastructure for its fast-growing urban population. For the 17 UN SDGs to be achieved, the government, the private sector (for-profit), the non-profit, the voluntary organisations and the public must to do their part. In this context, the role played by the government with its specific missions and higher education is examined. The new Companies Act 2013 stipulates that Corporate India needs to add investment of 2% of net profits in corporate social responsibility towards nation building efforts. Have Indian companies made progress on their contribution towards sustainability? The article ends with a note on what Hinduism can teach us about sustainable development.
