In his inaugural speech, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO), said, “The World Green Economy Organization recognizes this urgency as it strives to facilitate a transition that is not only ecologically sustainable but also economically viable. WGEO launched the Global Alliance on Green Economy (GAGE) in September 2022. GAGE is a cornerstone of our strategy. Since its inception, it has become a crucial mechanism for fostering partnerships and unlocking potential across nations, building countries' capabilities in transitioning to a green economy through technical and technological assistance, establishing a support platform to connect project developers with finance providers, and enhancing country exchange on implementation, best practices, and lessons learned. Countries, especially developing ones and small island states, encounter distinctive challenges in this transition, encompassing financial and technological hurdles. GAGE plays a key role in overcoming these barriers, with 85 countries currently united under this alliance. This number not only signifies our growing strength but also reflects the trust placed in this collaborative endeavour,” said Al Tayer.
“In the spirit of global cooperation, I extend an invitation for all of you to join the Global Alliance on Green Economy. In addition to GAGE's support, we also seek active engagement from WGEO’s Non-Party Stakeholders, including the Private Sector, to boost investments that accelerate the transition to a green economy. We invite all Private Sector entities not currently involved with WGEO’s platforms to join us in shaping a green and prosperous future for all,” added Al Tayer.

41% of Companies “Would Struggle” to Provide CSRD Data21.2.2024 08:22:00 CET | Press release
Some 41% of businesses fear that they would struggle to provide the data required to comply with new regulations.1 According to nShift, the global leader in parcel delivery management software, the longer companies leave starting to track their carbon emissions, the harder it will be to comply. The forthcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires some 50,000 businesses trading with the European Union to track and report on the carbon emissions from their activities. While the exact implementation deadline differs among sectors and countries, experts want that there is no time to waste. Putting off emissions monitoring until later risks creating a “steeper climb to compliance”. Mattias Gredenhag, CTO at nShift said, “The sooner companies start tracking emissions and compiling the required information, the better. For ecommerce and multi-channel retailers, this will include tracking the emissions on shipments. The longer businesses leave it, the steeper the climb
