Sustainability engagement in the Gulf Region

This publication, presented by the Gulf Finance Leaders Circle of Practice, looks at the finance team’s role in enabling sustainable business through eight case studies from the Gulf region that cover a range of sectors.

The challenge is significant. Greenhouse gas emissions in the United Arab Emirates are almost six times greater per capita than in the US, and the Gulf region has one of the highest levels of water stress in the world.

However, there are opportunities to be found in the region. The case studies within this document demonstrate that while sustainability trends pose commercial risks, they also open up new possibilities for organizations. They also show the vital role finance can – and needs to – play in the transition to a sustainable economy.
