Event Description:
‚ÄčFueling our Future -- Frugal Innovation: Co-building a Sustainable World with Fewer Resources

Thursday October 12, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

Innovation is a key driver of growth for firms and nations worldwide. But we can no longer rely on the “more for more” innovation formula—costly R&D, resource-intensive and polluting supply chains—that has sustained growth in the West for decades. Resource scarcity, climate change, new technologies, and empowered customers/citizens are compelling businesses and governments to learn to “do better with less.” Frugal innovation is a radically new paradigm that enables companies to generate greater social and economic value using fewer resources. Entrepreneurs in emerging markets such as Africa, China, and India are using frugal innovation to leapfrog the West in education, finance, energy, and healthcare—launching ultra-affordable solar panels, energy efficient medical devices, and schools-in-a-box. And now, Western nations are embracing frugal innovation to serve thrifty, socially conscious, and eco-responsible citizens at home.


Join Vijay Vaitheeswaran of The Economist in conversation with Navi Radjou, author of Conscious Society (2018), and business leaders for a discussion on how the private, public, and nonprofit sectors could join forces and adopt frugal principles and techniques to co-build sustainable societies and overcome the challenge of climate change.
