Dubai Chamber hosts event focused on businesses wanting to achieve sustainable development
The meeting took place at the Westin in Al Habtoor City and was attended by company representatives from around the UAE. Majid Al Ghurair, chairman of Dubai Chamber, gave the opening address.
“In line with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, sustainability is currently at the top of the UAE’s agenda, as it remains one of the key goals under our country’s Vision 2021 plan,” Al Ghurair said. “On its part, Dubai is playing a major role in these efforts as the emirate’s aim is to become one of the top ten sustainable cities in the world after making considerable headway on implementing green building regulations, scaling up solar power capacity, and reducing wastage.”
Al Ghurair also highlighted Dubai Chamber’s leading role in promoting sustainability within the business community in the UAE.
“As a representative of the private sector, Dubai Chamber is supporting Dubai’s sustainability mission by encouraging the local business community to play a pivotal role in driving sustainable change through innovation, partnerships and realignment of existing business models,” he said.
