Invitation to Apply for Saudi Arabia's Premier Sustainability Training for Small and Medium Enterprises
March 12, 2019 /3BL Media/ - King Khalid Foundation is proud to partner with AccountAbility to facilitate the Sustainability Leading Practices (SLP) Training Program. This will be the fifth training, following four previous workshops in Riyadh, Abha, Dammam and Jeddah. The workshop will be conducted through three days of training sessions on April 16-18, 2019 in Riyadh. The training will be provided in English and simultaneous Arabic translation will also be available.
Participating companies will receive training and engage in interactive exercises on key sustainability topics, such as “The Business Case for Sustainability” and “Measurement Tools for Sustainability Impact”. The training will be tailored to the Saudi Arabian business context and will focus on industry-specific topics. Each participant will receive actionable guidance on leading sustainability practices contained in a Sustainability Toolkit.
The SLP workshop aims to improve business performance in the Kingdom by building sustainability capacity at businesses with a tremendous opportunity to increase their contribution to the Saudi economy: small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The training objectives align closely with those of the Government of Saudi Arabia in the Saudi Vision 2030. Both aim to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the private sector, and focus on procedures to diversify Saudi business and boost new sectors.
Eligible companies are invited to indicate their interest in participating by submitting a short application before March 28, 2019. Detailed eligibility requirements are provided in the online application (available in both Arabic and English) here.
