The topic of sustainability has become progressively important in the UAE in the last five years, from Dubai announcing its objective of being one of the most sustainable cities in the world, to sustainability being one of the essential themes of the EXPO 2020 plans.
Having made headlines as one of the least sustainable countries in the world with one of the largest carbon footprints and its inhabitants using almost double the energy as many European nations, Dubai is now looking toward to a more sustainable future.
Because of its rapid development and change in Dubai, sustainability (CSR) is more important than ever. Sustainability (CSR) is important to everyone as it can provide both major opportunities and reduce risk in the short and long term. Key sustainability issues include energy efficiency, compliance with regulatory and corporate social responsibility policies relating to the environment, efficient waste management and disposal , the sourcing and use of water, the food supply chain and air, water and ground emissions.
These challenges demand attention. Our next CSE Certified CSR Practitioner Program (Advanced Edition 2018) will be in Dubai, this November 11 – 12, 2018. Planning and thinking ahead in order to maintain a climate and sustainability strategy is on CSE’s agenda along with Case Studies, Supply Chain, Corporate Responsibility and Corporate Communications.
