Fast Company Middle East is committed to using the power of storytelling to inspire positive change. The start of the year saw the launch of the Green Goals channel dedicated to covering climate change and sustainability. Hundreds of stories later, a summit to discuss key challenges and ideas driving change has been announced.
Green Goals Summit will bring together business leaders, policymakers, investors, and inventors to bring attention to ideas with great potential, expand their reach, and inspire more people to solve the challenges that affect us all.
The event will host panel discussions on topics such as financing the transition to a net-zero carbon future, the challenges and opportunities associated with driving a sustainable energy system, the role of a circular economy in achieving sustainability, and the critical role of leadership in turning sustainability goals into tangible actions.
Leading international management consulting firm Oliver Wyman has joined as the official advisory partner. This partnership is a significant milestone for the event, which brings together top business executives, policymakers, and thought leaders to address critical environmental issues and drive progress towards a more sustainable future through education, collaboration, and action.
Speaking about this partnership, Johnny Ayoub, Head of Climate & Sustainability at Oliver Wyman in India, the Middle East and Africa, said, “The pace of change is accelerating, and taking climate action is now a business imperative, as well as a moral one. The run-up to COP28 in the UAE is a key time to convene conversations that translate into action, which is why we’re looking forward to participating in Fast Company’s Green Goals Summit. At Oliver Wyman, we are privileged to have a front-seat view of climate-positive developments in the region and across a range of topics, including the energy transition and financial disclosures on carbon and nature. I look forward to discussing our latest research and findings at the summit.”
“The mission behind Green Goals is to tell both inspiring and alarming stories on climate change and convert concern into action. Our channel has received a readership of over 610,000 and it was natural for us to bring experts, business leaders and policyshapers under one roof for a summit. Oliver Wyman’s role as an advisory partner would be crucial and delivering key messages,” says Ravi Raman, Publisher, Fast Company Middle East.
The summit will be hosted at the Armani Hotel in Dubai on 17th May, 2023. It will be attended by sustainability experts from various industries and will be an opportunity for individuals to engage in meaningful conversations about the future of our planet.
