This month’s edition of Law Update addresses an important topic that impacts all of us from a professional and personal perspective. Our authors shine a spotlight and delve into how the legal industry and the region are committing to tackling the impact of climate change and the positive initiatives in place.
Within this issue, we touch on key areas such as waste management. Our experts provide in-depth commentary on the waste agenda in the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
We examine the steps taken by the UAE towards sustainable development and Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) compliance. Our lawyers recognise that for businesses, it is not as simple as following regulations; they are being held to task by customers wanting to purchase “eco-friendly” products. Therefore, we discuss “green marketing” and highlight what companies need to know in the region.
Beyond the climate agenda, you will find a number of relevant articles that provide insights into operating as an education provider in the UAE and how the DIFC innovation license is attracting technology entrepreneurs. We also share a number of jurisdiction updates with you from across the Middle East and North Africa.
The content developed in this edition serves as a reminder to keep the momentum going and the need for us to all do our part. Within Al Tamimi & Company, we are proactively and continuously working to achieve our sustainability goals across all our offices.
We hope you enjoy learning more about the Climate Change agenda and the broader legal developments taking shape in our region.
