Aramex has launched a new podcast series in Arabic, with the theme of sustainability.

Called ‘The Road to Sustainability’, the podcast is hosted by Dr. Abubaker Musa Eltom, a dedicated Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) advocate and speaker.

The podcast series is designed to enrich Arabic content on sustainability-related topics, with a primary focus on the UAE.

The logistics firm will feature discussions with prominent figures in sustainability, addressing some of the most crucial topics in the field.

The first episode features Dr. Ashraf Gamal El Din, Chief Executive Officer of Hawkamah, the Institute for Corporate Governance, the DIFC.

It focuses on the critical role of governance, a cornerstone in the ESG framework, while exploring key themes, including the balance between compliance and reporting, the significance of transparency, and the role of regulators in shaping sustainable business practices.
