The Dubai Sustainable Finance Working Group has published two comprehensive guides as part of Dubai’s efforts to accelerate its leading position and expansion of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and sustainable finance in the UAE and wider region. The guides inform issuers and investors about best practices in the rapidly expanding ESG sector and the commercial opportunities it offers.
Launched at the Dubai Sustainable Finance Webinar, the Sustainable Issuance Guide
details the steps involved in issuing ESG bonds, Sukuk, equities and other financial products, as well as outlining the need for companies to develop a sustainability strategy. The Sustainable Investing Guide
highlights the increasing ESG opportunities for investors as companies and the financial markets pivot towards integrating sustainability into their mainstream activities.
