Environment, Social & Governance (ESG)
In line with our strong belief in the important role business plays in society, we have taken solid steps to promote Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. Towards that end, OMINVEST organized a capacity building programme covering ESG practices across its group companies. Participating group companies included, National Life & General Insurance Co., National Finance, Oman Arab Bank, Alizz Islamic Bank, Jabreen Capital, and Ubhar Capital.
The programme was attended by OMINVEST’s board members as well as top and middle management executives at the Parent Company and Group companies through various focused training sessions. It also included a comprehensive online course especially designed for all staff.
The series of training sessions was concluded with a 32-hour ESG Champions Training Course for 10 ESG leads who were nominated by the CEOs of OMINVEST’s Group companies. This is a Certified Training Course for ESG Champions by the Accredited Academic Institution of the European Public Law Organisation (EEPLO), and the European Law and Governance School (ELGS). The champions will lead the effort of integrating ESG across their respective companies and will act as the core unit for synchronising ESG efforts and initiatives across the Group.
The aim of the ESG capacity building initiative by OMINVEST is to raise awareness and provide the needed knowledge and skills to help create a strategic social impact, and to integrate ESG at operational and investment levels across the Group whilst aligning with global best practices.
