The Arabia CSR Network is organizing the Arabia CSR Awards Forum and Ceremony 2014 for the seventh consecutive year in Dubai.
The Arabia CSR Awards is globally perceived as the most rigorous CSR and Sustainability award system and has received over 735 registered applications from 13 Arab countries across 25 sectors to date, said a statement.
The Awards Forum is a gathering of a galaxy of CSR think-tanks and professionals, high-ranking government officials and the most prominent local and international CSR players.
The Arabia CSR Awards Forum and Ceremony has been supported by the United Nations Global Compact since its inception.
Habiba Al Marashi, President and CEO of the Arabia CSR Network, said: “The Arabia CSR Awards Forum is a chance to convene annually, learn from each other and build partnerships for collective action. Our efforts will only materialize into the positive change we wish to see when they are focused and aligned with national strategies and the suitable international development goals.’’
‘‘CSR is now an imperative; it is no longer a question of why, but how? The sustainability of our region and our planet depends on it,’’ she added. - TradeArabia News Service
