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.
