The UAE is preparing to host the COP28 Climate Conference in Dubai in November and has declared 2023 "The Year of Sustainability," stated the report.
Imad Alfadel added, "As we build towards this hugely significant event, there is a growing awareness that all organizations must play a part in the transition to a more sustainable and inclusive economy."

By developing and implementing an effective ESG strategy, companies can create sustainable value for all stakeholders, attract new investors, build greater trust, manage emerging risks, access capital at a lower cost, tap into growing consumer demand for responsibly produced goods and services, and attract talent, he concluded.
