Stressing on the importance and relevance of sustainability in business actions, Mr. Anas said, “The sustained success of a business very much depends on the success of its surrounding communities and environments. At Alturki Holding, all our actions are driven by sustainability, which we define as the daily creation of economic value through responsible investment, while positively impacting our people and the environment in which we operate.”
