global gathering of CEOs saw these leaders prepared to build
their thoughts around three pillars of discussions - Vision
2050: the new agenda for business; Green Economy: a transformation
to address climate change and multiple crises; and Water:
the new challenge for the 21st century.
At the inaugural session, Dr R K Pachauri, President, TERI

President, WBCSD, welcomed all the business leaders. Other
dignitaries present on the occasion included - Mr Yvo de
