The Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards are on the horizon, and companies that are keen to enter have been urged to do so before the upcoming deadline.
Taking place in Dubai on February 14, the awards event will celebrate exceptional initiatives in 24 categories, including Best Clean Technology, Best Sustainability Education Programme, and Best Sustainable Business Models.
Judging the categories will be a wide range of sustainability experts, such as Amruta Kshemkalyani, Founder of the Sustainability Tribe blog and a UAE zero-waste consultant, and Brijesh Dhruve, the Chief Environmental Officer with Emirates National Oil Company LCC.
The deadline for entries is this week, November 15, but due to recent significant interest from potential entrants, extra time could be offered to those who keen to register.
Managing Director of Awards International UAE, Mark Hamill, said:
“This is the second year we will have hosted the Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards in Dubai, and we have already built on the success of the last event.
The quality of entrants so far is impressive, which will certainly not make it easy for our judges. However, we have some of the most talented experts overseeing the judging of presentations on the day, and they will ensure the most deserving winners take the stage to collect their awards.
Never has sustainability been more of a pressing issue in the UAE and wider Middle East, making these awards the most relevant of their kind for companies which enter.
I would urge those still to register to do so as soon as possible, as our judges will be announcing the shortlist of finalists very soon.”
