We Have Got Only One Planet, Let’s Save This Environment Working Together

by Dubaiforum

At the second session – PIONEERS IN SUSTAINABILITY: HOW TO LEARN FROM THE BEST, of the SME ‘Future of Sustainability: The Road to COP28’ Conference, our experts shed light on what needs to be done to address environmental issues effectively.

Our panelists for this session were:

  • Dr Steven Wilkinson, Director Research, Associate Professor, University of Wollongong Dubai

  • Manali Desai, Chief Sustainability Officer, PepsiCo

  • Priya Sarma, Head of Corporate Affairs & Sustainability Unilever Middle-East

  • Raji Hattar, Chief Sustainability Officer, Aramex.

Mr Hattar highlighted the point that sustainability issues are being taken up at face value whereas, it is high time we start addressing their causes.

Ms Desai spoke about development charging infrastructure for EVs, for large fleet of commercial vehicles. Similarly, Ms Sarma spoke about the cost factor which makes consumers withdraw, “though the intent is very much there.”
