 Saudi Arabia will launch the first Environmental Compliance Forum 2024 on Sunday.


The Riyadh forum, which is being organized by the National Center for Environmental Compliance, will feature local, regional and global specialists and decision-makers in the field of the environment, state news agency SPA reported on Saturday.


The two-day gathering will seek to develop a comprehensive vision for the advancement of the environmental sector between the governmental, private and nonprofit sectors.


Saad Al-Matrafi, the center’s spokesman, said that more than 40 international and regional figures from 10 countries will discuss topics related to future trends in the field of the sustainable environment.


He said that the forum will offer a platform for discussing best practices in the field of the environment, in addition to supporting environmental research, innovations and technologies, with one section designated the Sustainability Cafe.


Al-Matrafi said that the event offers a rare opportunity for institutions and companies to review their projects, initiatives and tools that support environmental sustainability, and come up with the best global environmental practices by harmonizing plans and projects that contribute to the successful implementation of everything that serves the sustainable environment sector.


The forum’s sessions will discuss the challenges in advancing economic growth and diversification, in line with the objectives of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, as well as unifying efforts to achieve a qualitative shift in the national economy while protecting and preserving the Kingdom’s natural resources and habitats.


The forum will also deal with other topics, including how to chart the way to a brighter future, policy and governance, technology and innovation in the field of the environment, sustainable development and quality of life, private sector participation, community participation, and youth and the environment.


Meanwhile, the Sustainability Cafe will encourage young people to discuss their aspirations and roles regarding the environment, with the participation of several specialized environmental associations.


Participants will include several CEOs of national environmental centers, and major national companies such as NEOM, Red Sea Global, the New Square Development Company, and the Saudi Mining Company.
