Imdaad in deal to cut carbon emissions
Abu Dhabi, July 2, 2012
Imdaad, a provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, has inked a deal with Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence (DCCE) for a strategic collaboration on greenhouse gas emission monitoring, reporting and verification in the emirate.
With this MoU, Imdaad has become the first FM company to sign such a deal with DCCE, said the company in a statement.
The MoU is in line with the environmental aspects of Imdaad’s 2012-2017 strategic plan and complements the company’s support to Dubai's vision for a green economy.
It allows Imdaad to leverage DCCE’s expertise on carbon to examine the emission reduction process across all operational areas and develop a Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
The partnership will also examine the best options to build a “Clean Energy Fund” linked to carbon dioxide reduction and dedicated to new investment in energy-related projects in Dubai.
Imdaad also took part in a workshop marking the launch of the 'Monitoring, Reporting and Verification' phase of Dubai's Carbon Footprint project, which will create a platform to monitor and benchmark Dubai's carbon performance.
Imdaad CEO Jamal Abdulla Lootah said Dubai's carbon footprint project was an integral part of the UAE Strategy for Green Development to promote green economy and the sustainable development of Dubai.
"Being a leading provider of integrated facilities management services, Imdaad is in an excellent position to support and create greater awareness about this initiative. We are confident that this partnership will empower us to offer more eco-friendly FM solutions, while reinforcing Imdaad’s reputation as a leading advocate of sustainable business practices in the society," he stated.
Waleed Salman, the chairman of the DCCE, said: “The active participation and contributions of the private sector is crucial in realizing the objectives of Dubai's Carbon Footprint project. We are therefore confident that this partnership will play a key role in encouraging more private sector firms to be part of this initiative."
"The MoU we have signed with Imdaad is also an important first step that will open more opportunities for cooperation and collaboration," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
