ESG STRATEGIES FOR A SUSTAINABLE GCC
WHERE ESG LEADERS CONNECT, EXCHANGE IDEAS AND TAKE VITAL STEP TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE WORLD
ESG principles expect companies to first do business responsibly and then pursue opportunities to solve societal challenges through business innovation and collaboration.

The ESG Leaders Summit will be a convergence ground of sustainable development leaders from Government, Industry, Academics and Developmental organisations to brainstorm on strategies that can help GCC achieve its objective of being a Net Zero Economy by 2060 whilst covering its carbon neutral and circular economy milestones of 2035.
With focused discussions on energy transition, climate change imperatives, reducing emissions, decarbonization, recycling, technology through Ministerial keynotes, industrial and scientific expert sessions and thematic panel discussions the event will bring to the forefront the global best practice
A collocated exhibition will showcase new products and technologies that will help GCC identify aides that can help along this ambitious journey.
REIMAGING GCC REGION THROUGH ESG – TRANSFORMATION THROUGH A NEW LENS
ESG imperatives are now front and centre for Middle East businesses and government. Since, the region is undergoing a rapid transformation, with this change driving economic growth, diversifying economies, creating jobs and improving overall quality of life. Reflected in national visions set out by individual countries, this transformation is threaded through every aspect of Middle Eastern society.
For ESG transformation to make an impact, a two-pronged approach is required. First, businesses must do everything in their power to deliver on ESG issues. Second, government bodies and regulators must develop clear policies and regulations to assist businesses in their transformations.
ESG demonstrates a new approach to business that thrives on collaboration between clients, suppliers, regulators and across industries and the adoption of its principles - both by the public and private sector - can accelerate the massive and fast transformation of our region. By fully embedding ESG strategies, organisations can set themselves on a path to long-term, sustained outcomes and success.
Governments, in turn, can enable this transformation through setting a purposeful ESG policy and regulatory agenda that will underpin the drive towards increased economic opportunities - new, value-added jobs, more meaningful social inclusion and greater governance for regional economies.
