The Forbes Middle East’s Sustainability Leaders list recognizes the companies at the forefront of the Middle East’s momentous sustainable transformation and economic diversification away from its traditional dependence on fossil fuels. Categorized into 11 key sectors, the list considers a range of factors in its classification, from positive environmental impact in relation to company size, to the transparency of companies’ sustainability report, sustainability-related initiatives, cross-sector sustainability collaborations, and a clear roadmap towards net zero.

The framework extends beyond decarbonization and focuses on four key areas, including environmental leadership, thriving workplace, community engagement, and solid governance and sustainable growth.

Asyad’s journey of rapid and sustainable growth resulted in its impressive ranking on Forbes Middle East’s 10 Biggest Logistics Companies in MENA, coming in at fourth, showcasing the world-class capabilities of Asyad’s integrated logistics ecosystem. Alongside its diverse logistics functions and integrated solutions, Asyad implements major sustainability initiatives which span the spectrum of the Group’s business units, partnerships and joint ventures.
