Why ESG is a CFO concern, with Greg Fewer, Chief Financial and Sustainability Officer, Aldar Properties

S3 E2 features Greg Fewer, Chief Financial and Sustainability officer at Aldar Properties in the UAE.

This week, we get a CFO’s perspective on how ESG helps attract new investors, lower borrowing costs and cut operating expense with Greg Fewer, Chief Financial and Sustainability Officer at Aldar, the largest real estate developer across the UAE. 

With the recent approval of the UAE's Circular Economy Policy 2021-2031, ESG is taking greater priority across the region. Aldar Properties is leading the way on incorporating ESG into their business model and inspiring others with their relentless focus on sustainability.

Greg and Amelia discuss the role of data in Aldar's carbon neutral plan, how sustainability practices take time, and how CFO’s of the future need to act now to demonstrate commitment to both employees and shareholders.

Greg also explains how his role evolved from Chief Financial Officer to Chief Financial and Sustainability Officer, and provides an insight into how the UAE’s leadership is enabling corporations to make more ESG-friendly business decisions.

With the Gulf on the front line of climate change, Aldar provides a blueprint on how ESG can help to both boost resilience and reduce emissions. Listen to hear how it puts sustainability at the center of its real estate development plans.
