Humankind is currently facing the most severe environmental and resource scarcity challenges in history. It is widely recognised that sustainability must be a major focus of every government, business, and individual. The United Nations has established Sustainable Development Goals for the world, and these are being implemented through government regulation, corporate action, and individual efforts. Many investors, and therefore investment companies, are now requiring companies to provide ESG reports (Environmental, Social, and Governance) every quarter and will only invest in companies that are moving in a sustainable direction.
This year’s Business Cup Challenge will be focused on helping companies achieve one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and will help students begin to think in a sustainable way so that, as the leaders of tomorrow, they can bring the world into a new age of sustainable living.
Apart from medals and the BCC Trophy, Winners will also receive internship and industry engagement opportunities, and funding for their higher education at Curtin University Dubai. Every participant and mentor will receive certificates as well.
Special Award categories and sponsored categories to be announced soon.
