Sustainability Initiatives is a trust registered in Pune, formed by a group of like-minded professionals in the field of urban and environmental planning, architecture, environmental science and energy. Sustainability Initiatives is formed with the objective of creating a network of researchers, academicians and professionals who will develop core research in the area of energy, environment and sustainable development.
The three broad functional areas under which Sustainability Initiatives will conduct its various projects and activities are:
- Knowledge Creation through Research & Publications
- Knowledge Dissemination through Training and Education programmes
- Advocacy for governmental policy support and specific research
The functional areas of Sustainability Initiatives have emerged through identification of existing gaps. There is a severe gap in availability of quality research that is specific to India and India’s growth trends and potential. Further, there is a massive gap between academic research and professional applications. Similarly, capacity to conduct research and analysis for effective policy formulation in governments is also weak, leading to ineffective policy implementation.
Advocacy is a cornerstone functionality that is being explored at Sustainability Initiatives. Through the services for advocacy, Sustainability Initiatives aims to support governmental departments and similar bodies to carry out targeted research and analysis for well-informed decision making.
