CEO Statement

Dear Readers.

Sustainable Development is always a challenge – in post-revolutionary Egypt, the past years were especially challenging for us. Still, in 2015 most of SEKEMs institutions performed well, which is an important driver, especially after the struggles we went through in the past five years.

It is absolutely clear to us that there are obstacles that one cannot overcome alone. Although our ambitious and trusty co-workers build the basis for our community we could only make it with the support of a strong network of partners. It is not taken for granted that our partners remained with us during these difficult times and it was an unexpected gift that we could even gain a new and very strong partner and friend in 2015. With this support we could achieve important debt reductions in 2015 and develop a strategy on debt reduction and resilience for the years to come.

We are aware of the many challenges we still have to overcome and we intent to face them as opportunities to become resilient. We started to rethink old practices and to steadily reinvent ourselves to continuously move towards sustainable development in all four dimensions.

This report shows the support of our friends, networks and partners in each single dimension and we want to thankfully dedicate the Sustainability Report 2015 to all of them. Furthermore, I am happy that we can present this report in a more personal way as we took our SEKEM News next to our indicators, enabling us to serve you with an integrative and vital picture of our efforts in 2015.

Enjoy reading and discovering SEKEM!
