Can old archenemies, companies and NGOs, partner for sustainability? Indeed they can, and should! Join us at the 5th CSR and Sustainability Meetup on 15th January 2015 in Dubai to learn how this happens and why you should do it too!
Long gone are the days when NGOs were only activist groups and watchdogs causing headache to corporations, or when corporations underestimated the value of sustainable businesses, transparency and stakeholder engagement. Risk management, enhancing brand or corporate reputation and credibility are some of the reasons why businesses choose to partner with NGOs. Gaining local knowledge and advancing community relations are important aspects as well. NGOs, on the other hand, have also recognized that they can achieve widespread and lasting change by harnessing the power of the market.
Join us to hear the latest success stories and real-life cases on how to best work towards and achieve common goals with the help of corporate-NGO partnerships!
