The Indian private sector has seen considerable growth in the last 20 years, and it continues to expand. With its growing importance and influence, it is necessary for the private sector to take measurable steps towards ensuring sustainable, responsible and equitable growth.
India Responsible Business Forum, as the name suggests, is a platform to promote adoption of inclusive and responsible business practices by Indian companies. IRBF aims to engage private sector in a dialogue about developing business models and practices that go beyond minimum corporate social responsibility compliance, to help support a balanced and sustainable economy.
IRBF invites leaders of business, civil society organizations, government representatives, and opinion leaders to confer and ideate on these subjects, in an attempt to develop business models and practices that are inclusive and responsible.
IRBF is an initiative by Oxfam India in collaboration with Corporate Responsibility Watch, Praxis and Partners in Change.
