ABU DHABI, 4th December, 2018 – The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC, hosted its inaugural ‘Ethics and Compliance Executives’ Forum’ at the company’s headquarters.
Chief Compliance Officers and General Counsels from leading UAE-based companies joined the ADNOC Group’s Ethics and Compliance team to discuss topics related to this year’s theme, ‘Managing the New Risk Landscape’, with a view to helping companies better harness the most innovative tools and processes needed to navigate an increasingly dynamic local and international business environment.
Speaking about the launch of the Forum, Salem Al Darei, Chief Legal Counsel at ADNOC, said, “As the pace of business increases – and as new emerging technologies reshape the way work gets done – ethics and compliance executives must constantly stay ahead of new and emerging risks to ensure that their teams are effectively supporting their business. In launching this annual Forum, ADNOC is taking a leading role in helping to shape the future of Abu Dhabi’s ethics and compliance profession, ensuring that the emirate and the broader UAE is globally recognised as a politically stable, ethically sound and economically diverse place to do business for decades to come.”
The Forum was facilitated by subject matter experts from Gartner, Inc. – a research and advisory company that equips business leaders with relevant insights and tools – who presented their latest research on how to manage increasingly complex ethical and compliance risks with efficiency and agility in our dynamic business environment.
The event was attended by the Chief Compliance Officer or General Counsel of the following companies: Abu Dhabi Global Markets; Baker Hughes, a GE company; Daman; Emirates National Oil Company; Etihad Airways; GE; Mubadala Investment Company; New York University Abu Dhabi; Occidental Petroleum Corporation; Technip S.A.; and ADNOC Group Companies.
