Centre for Sustainability, Growth and Development (C.S.G.D) is a Centre of Excellence currently operational at IMT Nagpur. It was established during the academic session of 2012-13 with a mission to apply sustainable principles to development projects that meet present and future organizational goals and fulfils the societal needs.
Sustainability, as we understand at CSGD, is not only about the environment, it is about people, business, and society at large.
Every year, CSGD organises the International Conference on Sustainability and Management Strategy (I.C.S.M.S) under which case studies and papers on various sustainable and environmental related issues are presented by people that range from college students to industry experts to well-renowned college professors.
Last year, CSGD organised 'Green Diwali', to encourage people to celebrate Diwali without firecrackers and convey the importance of preserving the environment. During the annual college fest, Milestone-35, we organised 'E-Certify', wherein the students had to come up with a sustainable business plan for a variety of professions. One other event which we conducted was ‘War of Words’, which was a debate competition on the related issues.
We also organise guest lectures by prominent industry leaders and experts on issues like sustainability and climate change. We also make sure that our student managers experience different industry practices on sustainability with the help of industry visits. One such visit was to the nearby JSW plant at Kalmeshwar.
Our centre is always dedicated to increasing the awareness of sustainable practices and providing a better future.
