COLLECTIVE FORCE: India Inc. unites to tackle second wave of COVID-19

WatchWatch Now


India has been grappling with the debilitating second wave of COVID-19 since March 2021. While hospitals, the Centre and state governments formulated and implemented multi-pronged strategies to fill in the gaps and address the challenges of a war-footing, India Inc. also stepped in and mobilised its resources to equip the country and its people against the second wave.

In their response to the pandemic’s second wave, corporates provided relief from pausing their social media to offer on ground support, to hospital infrastructure, essential aid and much more. Crores of donation continue to pour in to help India recover from the brutal second wave. The immediate steps truly reflected India’s collective force.

We want to bring together voices that inspire and motivate other stakeholders to continue to build the nation’s resilience during such challenging times.

In this discussion, we will recognise companies that came together and pledged their support to fight the second wave in India by understanding their strategies, long-term healthcare arrangements and how the battle against the pandemic reflects ESG practices.

Key Discussion Points

  • Mitigation strategies for the second wave of COVID-19
  • Aiding communities to upscale the medical infrastructure
  • Building strategies that will ignite a contingency code for all corporates
  • Building a more robust ESG framework that can impact policy with COVID-19 as a catalyst
  • Adopting regulatory changes to mitigate environmental and social risks for the long term, and,
  • Stimulating economic rebuild and prevention of future environmental crises.
