ISSP Local Chapters: UAE & Cyprus

The vision of the UAE & Cyprus Local Chapters of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) is to be the platform for open discussion and best practice exchange that will unite Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility professionals across the UAE and Cyprus respectively. Our role is to enhance Sustainable business by advancing the level of awareness and knowledge of businesses, individuals and the wider network of stakeholders, while taking into consideration the local context.

In May 2014 we formed the CSR & Sustainability Meetup Dubai, to provide access to Sustainability resources to everyone across the UAE, to increase awareness on Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility, and improve Sustainability performance of businesses and organizations. The meetup was the first in the region to offer an open learning and networking platform for Sustainability professionals and advocates. In May 2016, the CSR & Sustainability Meetup Dubai became officially part of the ISSP and was renamed to ISSP UAE Local Chapter. The ISSP Cyprus Local Chapter followed soon after. The chair of both local ISSP chapters is Aglaia Ntili.

Our purpose is to promote the concept of Sustainability and Sustainable Development across the UAE and Cyprus and enable access to knowledge for all.​
