The Rising Importance of ESG in the Middle East

October 31, 2022 | News,

Following our recent ESG-related work for a sovereign wealth fund and an Abu Dhabi Private Equity Firm, Anthesis Middle East welcomes the rise in importance being placed on ESG matters in the UAE and wider GCC region.

Next month there are a number of forums and conferences in Dubai for private equity, sovereign wealth funds, venture capital and financial services sector companies. ‘Super Return Middle East’ will take place on November 1st and 2nd 2022 and the ‘Middle East Investment Summit’ on the 14th and 15th of November 2022, both at the Ritz Carlton in Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC).

The topic of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and its role in investing will form a key part of the conferences, with sessions dedicated to the subject at both events. ‘The evolution of ESG in the Middle East’ will be discussed as one of the key topics by Eline Sleurink, Head of UK, Ireland & the Middle East for the United Nations (UN) Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) at ‘Super Return Middle East’, whilst the topics of sustainability, renewables, decarbonization and ethical investing will be discussed throughout the ‘Middle East Investment Summit’.
