HRSE is working towards Carbon Neutrality and is powered by Renewable Electricity. The event aims to bring the HR community together to build a sustainable future.

We are deeply committed to sustainability at HRSE Dubai, with a clear focus on both people and the planet. To achieve this, we're making changes in the way we run our events, such as reducing carbon emissions and minimising waste. Simultaneously, we are dedicated to empowering diverse communities and forming strategic partnerships. Our ultimate aim is to play a central role in shaping the sustainability of the HR industry by connecting individuals with the networks and knowledge required to address the industry's significant challenges.

HRSE is proud to be powered by Renewable Electricity

As a part of our continued commitment to the sustainability of HRSE, we have switched to 100% renewable electricity, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of our event.


We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running an event gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially and economically in our host cities. We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping our markets improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

We believe a sustainable event focusses on three key aims: 

Inspiring Sustainable Development

  • Using our content and partnerships to help support the sustainability of the market our event serves
  • Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors and other stakeholders to deliver a sustainable event 
  • Aligning with the UN's SDGs including: Good Health, Affordable and Clean Energy, Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure, Climate Actions, Partnerships and more

Running an Environmentally Responsible Event

  • Energy or material efficiency
  • Sustainable procurement choices
  • Reducing our event’s carbon emissions
  • Creating less waste
  • Venue sustainability features
  • Considering the sustainability credentials of the items sourced for the event

Running a Socially Responsible Event

  • Support of local communities
  • Partnering with sustainable suppliers and local suppliers wherever possible
  • Ensuring our event is a welcoming environment for all
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility
  • Creating a positive impact on our host city

Code of Conduct

We want everyone who comes to our events to have a great experience. Whether you are attending, speaking, exhibiting, sponsoring or working with or for us, our focus is on creating an environment and experience that everyone can participate in and benefit from. 

Safety, respect and consideration are integral to this. While issues are rare, we want to be clear about the standards and expectations in place at our events, wherever they are held, because actions can impact others and everyone has a role to play in getting it right. 

This code explains our expectations and rules, which includes general good practice behaviour, and how to report anything witnessed or experienced that goes against them. Anyone not following these rules or behaving in an unacceptable way will be asked – and expected – to stop doing so immediately and may be removed from the event.


Setting the pace for sustainability in the HR space, we are committed to run HRSE Dubai as a socially and environmentally responsible event.

Align your brand to sustainability goals and get benefits such as: Increased brand awareness amongst attendees, Improved brand image and reputation, Brand alignment with environmental causes and Storyline and themed messaging pre/post event.
