The Arabia CSR Awards 2016, the latest edition of one of the Arab region’s highest accolades, concluded on a high note with 20 top government and private entites receiving prestigious recognitions for their excellent and innovative Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability programs. Trophies were handed over to the winners, while Certificates of Appreciation were given to all nominees during the awarding ceremony held at the plush Steigenberger Hotel in Dubai.

Habiba Al Marashi, President & CEO of Arabia CSR Network said during the ceremony: “We have seen new major trends and patterns evolving in the areas of CSR and sustainability over the years. Regional organizations now view CSR and sustainability from the lens of social value creation and stakeholder needs. They are eager to engage with stakeholders, identify critical touch points, and build long-term strategies that support national and regional plans and mandates for growth and development. This is a very welcome development and one that will be very impactful for the region as we move to achieve our Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and accomplish the 2030 Arab Agenda for Sustainable Development,”.
