Commenting on the 2020 Sustainability Report, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, Ali Al Baqali, said: “Communicating what we do is what makes us strong.

Reporting on our ESG performance is our way of sharing with our various stakeholders what matters for Alba.

Alba was one of the earliest companies in the Middle East region to voluntarily disclose its ESG performance through its first Sustainability Report in 2016.”
