How I moved my business 2022-08-03T10:50:44+00:00

Businesses succeed by being able to create impact, and this happens when they are able to fully engage with and be attuned to the needs of the communities they work in. The 2022 edition of “This is how I moved my #BusinessForward” campaign engaged with the business community on how responsible business principles can be practiced and embedded in the day-to-day operations of companies whatever their size is. Beyond the literature, and on practical ground and in our local context, how is this done? We heard from companies working in our local market. The campaign was joined by four leading corporates : CIB Egypt, The Coca Cola Company, L’Oreal Egypt and Vodafone Egypt, who believed in the cause of the campaign to raise this needed awareness and joined our call as partners inviting the business community to share their practices.

Participate in the campaign “This is how I moved my #BusinessForward” responsible business edition and showcase how your business is moving forward by responding to societal and environmental priorities.
