Responsible Business, under the guidance of Mr. Khaled Kassar, is building momentum for sustainable business practices in Lebanon and the region, and its mission is to support companies seeking to develop their strategies in this area

Mr. Georg Kell, Executive Director of the UNGC

I was very pleased to see so many entrepreneurs present at the 4th Responsible Business Forum and ready to work in the true spirit of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The European Union has been advancing in Lebanon on the practice of a ‘social contract’ and we are fully supporting Responsible Business, led by Mr. Khaled Kassar.

Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a great event. It is always great to hear from like-minded individuals who are passionate about sustainability. I attended the UN Global Compact’s 10th anniversary of the 10th Principle on Anti-Corruption in New York and the main theme was directly in line with the message that I took away from the Responsible Business Forum that “Values and principles should be a fundamental part of business transactions

Congratulations on the very considerable success of the conference. Having organized various events myself, I know just how much hard work has to go into such conferences. You did exceptionally well to get so many speakers from outside Lebanon. Responsible Business achieved an international level event in Beirut, one which we only see in annual conferences organized by global sustainability leaders like the UNGC, GRI, and the BITC.
