The Arab Sustainability Leadership Group (also known as The ASLG) was founded in 2008 by Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan, as a network of high-profile companies, government entities, and non-profit organisations committed to achieving the highest levels of sustainability management, performance and reporting. Collectively, the members are dedicated to leading the Arab World towards a more innovative and sustainable future.


To support its members, the network aims to deliver:

  • Excellence as an unparalleled practitioner-level forum for peer-to-peer collaboration and knowledge sharing. The ASLG is based on the premise that the most effective learning and support can come from those people facing the same hard work and challenges of implementing sustainability within an organisation firmly committed to doing so
  • Innovation as an effective CEO-level platform for influencing innovative policy and fostering partnerships
  • Leadership as the leading regional network promoting sustainability practices in the Arab world, and a voice to the rest of the world on key regional sustainability issues.
  • Members

    Regional Members - Current active members of the ASLG include Abraaj Capital, Aramex, Environment Agency Abu Dhabi, HBS International Ltd, JorAMCo, Jordan River Foundation, National Commercial Bank, Paltel, SEKEM, Shell Jordan, Standard Chartered Jordan and Sustainability Excellence.

    ASLG Egypt - In March 2010 Queen Rania of Jordan launched the ASLG's first country chapter in Egypt. This has brought a further 34 members into the group who are currently undergoing training and integration. New members include Siemens Egypt, Unilever Egypt, SilverKey Technologies and Smart Village.


    The Arab Responsible Competitiveness Index - As one of the ASLG's key achievements to date, the report "Responsible Competitiveness in the Arab World 2009" provides an assessment of regional performance for 15 Arab nations using a new customized benchmarking - the "Arab Responsible Competitiveness Index". The verdict? The region offers significant strengths even in the face of the global economic downturn, but major hurdles to responsible competitiveness remain. The Arab world has an average rank of 66th, out of 116 countries.

    CEO Level Meetings - To date the ASLG has brought the CEO's of some of the most influential organisations in the region together to discuss important topics together with Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan on youth development, and national and region competitiveness.
