Why this program
Social and sustainability performance has become a key determinant of business success. The SDGs are the globally accepted framework used by governments, international organizations and NGOs. Integrating them into your business strategy will help drive business and career success.
This Forum is designed to provide executives, leaders and senior government officials with the ability to develop and implement strategies to integrate the SDGs into their business strategy and help to future-proof their organization (and careers).
The Forum is very pragmatic and will integrate theory and practice. Participants will understand the importance of SDG integration and be given practical tools, frameworks and plans to successfully integrate the SDGs into their organization’s strategy. The focus will be on the GCC region but participants from other regions will benefit as well. UAE organizations will understand the linkage to the Year of Giving.
