“The world is fast acknowledging its responsibility for the environment and preserving the ecosystem we live in. With the introduction of the Paris agreement in 2015, the UAE and other GCC countries have implemented sustainability initiatives to set clear goals which will shape its future.”

“This has created an immense drive for talent and a need for those who understand Global and European standards for reporting, sustainability strategy along with deep technical experts.”
