ESG Gala Dinner @ Dubai

WHEN December 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - December 12, 2017 8:00 pm

Hawkamah ESG Index

Hawkamah maintains the first ever MENA wide Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Index which measures the environmental, social and governance attributes of publicly traded companies. The Index is re-calibrated annually, and we have data on regional ESG practices from 2007 to date.

About the ESG Gala Dinner

Hawkamah is organizing a Gala Dinner that will recognize the top performers of the S&P/Hawkamah Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) Middle East and North Africa Regional Index.

The Gala Dinner is a celebration of regional ESG practices, highlighting better governed and environmentally and socially responsible MENA companies.

The goal of the dinner is to bring together companies with institutional investors, asset managers, sovereign wealth funds, regulators and members of the media to facilitate investment and interest in these top performing ESG-indexed companies.

The Gala Dinner will also be an occasion for Hawkamah & S&P Dow Jones Indices to highlight the positive trends in ESG practices in our region over the past 10 years since we started tracking and maintaining this Index. The ESG practices report will be launched during the Dinner and participants will have exclusive first access.
