Bringing the Saudi HR community together to build a sustainable future

We are committed to HRSE KSA having a positive impact on people and the planet; from minimizing carbon emissions and waste by changing how we run our events, to empowering our diverse communities and partnerships. We want to play a key role in shaping the sustainability of the HR industry by connecting people with the networks and knowledge they need to help solve the big challenges ahead.


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

Running a Socially Responsible Event

  • Partnering with sustainable suppliers and local suppliers wherever possible
