Islam and Sustainable Development

Our colleague, Professor Hashim Kamali, Founder and Director of the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies in Kuala Lumpur, has sent me an essay on the values in Islam which provide grounds for our promoting sustainable development.  Prof. Kamali is included in the 2022 list of the world’s 500 most influential Muslims.

From its inception, the Caux Round Table presumed that an ethic of responsibility in business and finance would resonate with many wisdom traditions and so could appeal to global communities for support of its aspirations.  Prof. Kamali’s essay is, to me, further proof of this profound and reassuring proposition.
