Munib R Masri Becomes United Nations Commissioner

Edgo Chairman, Munib R Masri, has been awarded the title of UN Commissioner for the development goals of the UN Global Compact’s Regional Network for Social Responsibility.

MRM was given the honor at a ceremony at the presidential headquarters in the Palestinian city in Ramallah where Jerusalem was chosen as the Arab city for Social Responsibility for the year 2017.

Jerusalem was named Arab city for social responsibility for 2017 to show pride in the holy city and its people and motivate the region to adopt initiatives, projects and responsible events that contribute to the preservation of Jerusalem and Palestine.

The UN Global Compact’s Regional CSR Network is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative that aims to align the strategies and operations of companies with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption and actions to advance societal goals.
