Our vision

As the risks of environmental degradation, climate change and resource depletion become increasingly pressing, businesses have a vital role to play in shaping a sustainable future. Addressing these risks and incorporating sustainability into corporate strategies is essential to creating a sustainable environmental, social and economic system. At Globally, we see a future where business is playing a leadership role through action and example.

Our mission

We are a for-impact organization which incorporates environmental and social stewardship into our own operations and recognizes it as a key component of sound business performance.

Our mission: to facilitate companies in being environmental stewards, investors in social capital and leaders in sound and fully integrated governance. By taking the time to understand businesses and their ambitions, we guide and support tangible environmental, social and governance action that achieves sustained results and fuels growth. In short we support business in becoming more sustainable.

Our goals

1. To transition businesses in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world from a profit-centric model to one that encompasses and balances economic, environmental and social objectives.

2. To develop the next generation of sustainability professionals by providing employment, mentoring and training opportunities for young people who share our passion for sustainable action.

3. To contribute, through the use of our people and financial resources, to the successful implementation of ESG-related projects in the wider community.

4. To improve the welfare of blue-collar workers by supporting businesses in implementing educational and mental health programmes.

5. To reduce the greenhouse gas emissions intensity of businesses by supporting them in quantifying emissions and implementing practical steps to reduce them.


Supplier diversity policy

Living Business™ recognizes the importance of having a diverse and inclusive supply chain. We are therefore committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers with ownership from underrepresented groups. This means we give preference to suppliers with small, minority-owned, women-owned, people of determination-owned, veteran-owned and LGBTQ- owned business enterprises, when all business considerations are determined to be equal among competitive suppliers.

The purpose of Living Business'™ supplier diversity policy is to provide opportunities to diverse suppliers that satisfy our standards while supporting our clients in achieving their own corporate diversity goals.


- Encourage all employees to actively seek out suppliers with ownership from underrepresented groups that can provide high-quality, competitive goods and services, and whose business model is aligned with our business strategy.
- Ensure the inclusion of suppliers owned by underrepresented groups as part of our processes.
- Communicate the value of supplier diversity both internally and externally to all stakeholders.
