“This conference will be discussing the vital issue of corporate social responsibility and also make recommendations about ways in which companies in Qatar can work to world standards on this,”said Jawhawi . “UDC put great importance on corporate social responsibility, and the need to fulfill its responsibilities, therefore, the company is sponsoring this conference to be a successful one.”
“We also support all efforts that will increase awareness and disseminate national standards for social responsibility, and make this topic at the forefront of concerns of the public sector and the private sector. To that end, the conference will bring together economic figures and official bodies, to discuss best practices of international and local social responsibility, and to consider how companies in Qatar would apply them.
“With Qatar’s economy the fastest growing in the world, CSR has become more important than ever as companies look for ways to give back to their communities.
