Emirates Global Aluminium, the largest industrial company in the United Arab Emirates outside oil and gas, has announced the appointment of Simon Storesund to the newly-created position of Chief Supply Chain & Business Development Officer, as the company increases its focus on strategic procurement and responsible sourcing.
Last month EGA joined the Ministry of Industry & Advanced Technology’s In-Country Value Programme, which seeks to increase the proportion of goods and services UAE companies procure locally and contribute to the achievement of the Operation 300bn strategies to develop UAE industry.
EGA desires to be estimated amongst the world’s most reliable metals and mining companies, with strong environmental, social and governance performance both in its operations and activities the company generates in its supply chain.
EGA spends billions of dollars every year on the goods and services we need. Our demand creates opportunities for new companies and industries to supply us, further contributing to economic growth in the countries where we operate. We also expect those goods and services to be made responsibly, to the environmental, social and governance standards our stakeholders expect. I welcome Simon Storesund to EGA and this important new role for our company.”
