Theme: Sustainable Development Goals in the post-pandemic world

As opposed to the traditionalist management view, which highlighted the difficulties in achieving the conflicting goals of “economic benefit” versus “environmental benefits”, the revisionist management view proposes that both can be achieved together, in fact the triple target of “people, profit and planet” are complimentary to each other in the long run. The need of the hour is to align these goal at individual, corporate, country and supranational level. A combination of well-planned environmental friendly policies by regulators and adoption of environmental friendly practices by corporates and individuals or households is the only hope to provide a habitable ecosystem for the next generations.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a standstill with the travel restrictions and lockdowns imposed by governments worldwide to curb the spread of the deadly virus. The only positive impact of the pandemic is perhaps the drop (although severely insufficient) in pollution across the world with improved air and water quality, clean beaches and environmental noise reduction. As the world restart their economic engines to reach the pre-pandemic levels of productivity, we need to pause and design a greener route this time to ensure a stronger, resilient and sustainable post-pandemic world. As COP26 summit reaffirms the common commitment of the parties across the world to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, we Rajagiri School of Business, Rajagiri School of Social Sciences and Fiji National University (FNU), dedicate this conference to the theme of the greening the recovery from the pandemic through development of sustainable policies and adoption of sustainable practices.
