Governance, The Bedrock of Sustainability
The 14th Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development Forum is held
this year in light of the robust steps taken by the Egyptian government – under directives of
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi - to realize sustainable development in all sectors.
This falls within the framework of the Egypt Strategy 2030 which aims at rallying up efforts
to all levels and merging all parties concerned from the private sector and international
institutions in order to magnify opportunities of sustainable growth, while taking into consideration the social and environmental dimensions. This is meant to achieve sustainability,
ensure fair distribution of development fruits and secure decent life for future generations.
Moreover, the private sector and the business community are keen on adopting strategies
aiming at boosting institutional potentials and building capabilities for effective action
vis-à-vis sustainability issues, thus making the Egyptian economy more resilient and attractive to responsible investments. This will help promote growth opportunities and establish
new projects abiding by environmental and social standards.
