Together with HSBC & Globally, Get In The Ring is looking for UAE-based businesses to join in a brand new edition of the ‘Living Business‘ competition. Living Business is a mix of educational events, networking and a competition, all designed to support businesses in moving towards a more sustainable future. Using the ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) framework, businesses in the UAE can adopt new policies or initiatives to save costs, improve their environmental impact, enhance the quality of their people, and implement a governance framework.

 

The Living Business Competition is a process in which UAE-based businesses can simultaneously enhance their profitability and their sustainability. Businesses willing to compete in this competition are supported by an extensive network of experts provided by HSBC and Globally. During the competition, businesses have the opportunity to be guided through workshops, coaching and implementation assistance. Performance will be measured by an independent jury who will judge the winner of each category based on key metrics. Once the winners are selected, it’s time to ‘Get In The Ring’! This final event, where the overall winner is decided, will be held on the 29th of October.

 

Interested? Join us for the launch of the Living Business Competition during the Kick-Off Event on the 20th of February in HSBC’s Head Office in Dubai!  To find more information and sign up for the Kick-Off Event click here
