Mr. Abdul Jebbar PB received the award at a function - CEOforLIFE - ECI United Arab Emirates & Global Awards 2022 - held at the Terra Auditorium at the Sustainability Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai.
The CEOforLife Awards honour CEOs who have carried out the best life projects and set new standards of service in their SDGs projects to achieve a better and more sustainable future in the marketplace.
“It is an honour for me personally, and for Hotpack Global, to be recognized for our endeavors in the sustainability space. This is an award for our diligence and commitment to pursue our business keeping in line with the broad mandates of the UN SDGs, and I wish to thank the organizers for this unique honour,” Mr. Jebbar said in a statement.
