Capitalising on increased commitment to the environment at Gulf Environment Forum

The Gulf Environment & Sustainable Development Forum (GEF) arrives at a perfect time to capitalise on the growing commitment towards the environment by government says waste management expert Dr. Amyn Dhaya of GEMS-UtilEco.

Dr. Amyn will be participating at GEF for the third time this year, with his presentation titled Integrating Environmental Sustainability into Saudi Arabia’s Economic Diversification. He explains; “We see a growing level of commitment towards the environment by governments, industries and the public. Efforts to increase enforcement are also growingly evident.”

“The GCC Region is undergoing rapid development, drawing upon state-of-the-art solutions globally. Forums such as GEF foster a better understanding between customers and solution providers, helping ensure that projects and solutions are implemented within the correct cultural, socio-economic and regulatory context. It also provides an excellent forum for regional and international level networking. We have found GEF to be very beneficial in this regard.”

Previewing his speaking slot at the forum Dr. Amyn states: “We will be speaking about achievement of sustainability in the environmental and infrastructure industry within Saudi Arabia, taking into account all the unique local factors that impact projects and industries within this sector.”

The third annual Gulf Environment & Sustainable Development Forum is held under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz and initiated by the Presidency of Meteorology & Environment.
