Corporate Sustainability: Opportunities for Companies and Investors


Hawkamah Institute For Corporate Governance is proud to announce the 1st ESG Forum for companies and investors on December 12, 2017.

Hawkamah defines corporate sustainability as covering three key areas: “ESG” – Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance – factors that are increasingly recognized as essential elements for protecting and creating value for companies while positioning them for a better future.

The ESG Forum will be an occasion for Hawkamah and S&P Dow Jones Indices to highlight the positive trends in ESG practices in our region over the past 10 years as evidenced by the S&P/Hawkamah ESG Pan Arab Index and to discuss implementation challenges involved in ESG.
 
The Forum brings together senior executives from regional companies as well as institutional investors, regulators and members of the media to learn, share and know how ESG can add value to them.

Testimonials

  • The certified Board Secretaries Workshop provided by Hawkamah and Dubai Financial Market is an essential course for learning corporate governance, scope and responsibilities of the board secretary and understanding the governance and disclosure requirements of the Dubai Financial Market and the Securities and Commodities  Authority. It is a practical course which combined recent best practices and key learning lessons. I would highly recommend it for people involved in corporate governance and in particular in a listed company.

  • Great program! Very well done and very useful information delivered in an excellent manner. The workshop was very inspirational, energizing, bringing lots of ideas, with both substantial and in-depth knowledge together with case studies. Well-balanced composition of participants, which contributed to interesting and focused discussions and exchanges. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in improving their proficiency and core competencies.
