Pearl Initiative and United Nations Global Compact – 2nd Regional Forum
Pearl Initiative and United Nations Global Compact – 2nd Regional Forum was held at Dubai, on 27 Oct 2016. The Forum provided a platform for business leaders across the Gulf Region to explore effective and practical ways for businesses to engage in activities and partnerships that advance economic growth, job creation, and sustainable development, in light of the recently-launched 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals setting the 2030 Global Agenda.
The Pearl Initiative is a Gulf business organisation promoting a corporate culture of accountability and transparency as a driver of competitiveness and sustainable economic growth across the Persian Gulf region of the Middle East. The organisation was developed in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Partnerships and was launched in September 2010 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. In 2013, the Pearl Initiative signed a strategic partnership with the United Nations Global Compact to collaborate on a number of programmes in countries across the Middle East and North Africa
Mr. Sanil Nair, Director, Projects attended the Forum on behalf of IICCG.
