On March 7, 2012, at the JW Mariott, Juhu, expertise, learning and innovation will converge at the CRY Corporate Social Responsibility Summit (http://www.cry.org/microsite/CCRS/index.html), with the aim to deepen corporate India’s engagement in social issues for a sustainable future. Organised by CRY – Child Rights and You – the nation’s leading child rights advocate, the summit will see representatives from some of India’s leading corporate houses in attendance at the JW Mariott, Juhu.

The key note speaker at the summit is John Elkington, who has been described by Business Week as the ‘dean of the corporate responsibility movement for three decades’. He coined the term ‘triple bottom line’ and has been one of the world’s greatest influencers on sustainability.
