Hilton Supra, Vice Chairman of ztudium, interviews Amir Hussain, Founder and CEO of Yeme Tech, in the latest episode of citiesabc YouTube Podcast. The two discuss ESG principles that govern the urban planning process and social community development. The interview is now live on Businessabc.net and citiesabc YouTube channels.

The integration of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles has emerged as a crucial paradigm shift in the contemporary urban planning and community development process. Beyond traditional considerations of infrastructure and economic development, ESG factors are now recognised as essential components in creating sustainable and equitable urban environments. 

During the interview, Amir highlighted the various ways in which Yeme Tech has been instrumental in increasingly incorporating ESG criteria into decision-making processes. He explained that ESG principles in urban planning extend beyond physical infrastructure to encompass broader social and community aspects. This includes initiatives to enhance access to affordable housing, promote inclusivity, and prioritize public health and safety. 

By prioritising social equity and community engagement, urban planners can create vibrant and livable neighborhoods that cater to the diverse needs of residents. Furthermore, integrating ESG considerations into urban development projects not only mitigates environmental risks but also enhances social resilience, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment among community members. He also emphasised that by embracing ESG principles in urban planning and social community development, cities can chart a path towards a more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable future for all residents.
