This year was special for the professionals in the GCC region because they got a chance to enjoy the live Gulf Sustainability Awards 2021! For the first time in 18 months, the Awards Finals and Ceremony were held in person under the amazing Dubai lights. More than 150 professionals attended this refreshing live event, loaded with positive energy and stories from the past year.
Take a quick peek at Gulf Sustainability Awards 2021
Today, we share an overview of GSA for all those who were unable to attend! The day started with colourful and impressive presentations, as participants got an opportunity to share their sustainability initiatives with the audience. There were more than 80 presentations for the judges to score at the Awards Finals! We dare to say their task was challenging but enjoyable at the same time.
Our host for the event was Aleksandar Ilic, Regional Manager at Awards International and Head of CXM. He brought even more positive energy to the audience with an inspiring introduction.
Sam Alawiye, the CEO of our sponsor GreenParking, also had a quick but memorable appearance. We travelled through time by listening to his motivational speech on the greener and more sustainable future. As a professional with more than 25 years of experience, he provided the attendees with examples of the practical application of sustainable practices across various industries.
We had the pleasure of hosting Renata Liuzzi, our partner from Axis Partners. In her speech, she reminded us about the significance of innovation in everyday business life.
Renata will be hosting a new Masterclass in collaboration with CXM, and in her talk, she shortly introduced the audience to the upcoming course. This training is based on analysing more than 200 real case studies and proven business practices. You can read more about it on this link.
Another highlight of the day was planting the indigenous Ghaf trees in collaboration with our media partner Goumbook to symbolically contribute to the wildlife restoration. As always, Goumbook has outstanding green ideas, and we’re always happy to support them.
Who are the winners of this year’s GSA?
Among all those shared sustainability initiatives, it was challenging to determine and announce the winners. All the participants had outstanding stories to tell, and we are thankful to be part of the community that acknowledges those who take care of the environment.
There were 16 categories this year, and you can see the winners of each category on the Awards International website.
