Taking a lead on sustainability in India
This November, air pollution in the city of Kolkata, India, crossed the 400 mark on the air quality index (AQI). Kolkata thereby surpasses Delhi, the world's most polluted city, on the scale. In many global cities, an AQI of this count results in schools closing and cars being taken off the roads. But not in Kolkata. Last week in the same city, The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) held a leadership program for 40 top executives at Tata Steel, which is part of the Indian enterprise Tata Group with close to 700,000 employees worldwide. QVARTZ Partner and sustainability expert Ylva Lindberg, who is a Senior Associate at CISL, spoke about the consequences of climate change and how a company like Tata Steel can manage the risks, but also capture the business opportunities in building a future-proof sustainable business model.
