ESG – a holistic concept that has roots dating back to the 1960s, has evolved over the decades gaining more traction in recent years within the corporate sustainability context.
Referring to the environmental (‘E’), social (‘S’) and governance (‘G’) pillars within the sustainability framework, they are key to addressing the impacts of corporate activities and investments on people and the planet.
With the current lack of unified reporting standards, definition and many frameworks influencing the ESG space, we gathered a network of experts and an all-star panel from different industries, contexts and trajectories to discuss the challenges and highlight opportunities around ESG reporting – from regulation and standardization to quality data collection and the measurement of impact.
This think tank was run by Goumbook in partnership with Emex and hosted by Jumeirah Group in their flagship hotel Burj Al Arab on 3rd of June, 2022.
It included a presentation by Daniel Gribbin – VP of Sustainability and ESG at Emex, and a panel discussion that was moderated by Tatiana Antonelli Abella, featuring Mohamad El Khalil – Director of Prudential Supervision at DFSA, Mariam Alqubaisi – Head of Sustainability and Business Excellence at Etihad, Adrienne Doolan – CEO of Green Touches and Board Member of UN Global Compact Network UAE, and Ashraf Abdelkhalek – Sustainability, Health and Safety Leader for Gulf Countries at Schneider Electric.
