Muna Al Nahdi, Head of Sustainability and Consultancy at UAE-based facility services provider Farnek, has been elected as a board member of the Local Network of the UN Global Compact.

Al Nahdi, who will oversee risk management, and support the network’s expansion by lead recruitment and member expansion, says: “Alongside my fellow board members, I am eager to engage with participants at all levels, working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and upholding the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.”

The network’s General Assembly in the UAE represents over 200 participating companies and is chaired by Waleed Salman, EVP of Business Development and Excellence at the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA). It is part of a wider global network of 69 Local Networks operating under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the UNGC HQ.

Each network operates autonomously, adhering to the core principles of the UN Global Compact while tailoring strategies to the UAE. Established in 2015 and hosted by the World Green Economy Organization, GCN-UAE collaborates closely with the UNGC HQ, providing opportunities for learning, policy dialogue, and partnerships related to the Ten Principles of responsible conduct and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Joëlle Jammal, Executive Director of the Global Compact Network UAE, says: “We are delighted to welcome Muna as a member of our board and we are looking forward to her involvement and insightful contribution, as we navigate the way forward to a more sustainable future”.
