Commenting on the 2020 Sustainability Report, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali said:
“Communicating what we do is what makes us strong. Reporting on our ESG performance is our way of sharing with our various stakeholders what really matters for Alba. Alba was one of the earliest companies in the Middle East region to voluntarily disclose its ESG performance through its first Sustainability Report in 2016. This speaks volumes about the high standards of transparency and governance we have been practicing in all our disclosures. We are also pleased to scale to a higher standard in reporting on ESG considerations with our latest Report.”
It's worth noting that 2020 Sustainability Report was also reviewed by GRI Content Index – Corporate Core Option.
