Dulsco Awarded Dubai Chamber CSR Label for Fourth Time
Integrated environmental solutions provider honoured for its commitment to the community
Dubai, UAE, September 30, 2019 Dulsco, the leading integrated solutions provider, has been honoured for the high quality of its CSR and sustainability activities by Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Dubai Chamber). The Emirati company, which has been operating in the UAE for 84 years, was awarded the Chamber’s CSR Label – the fourth time that it has received the accolade.
Dulsco was presented with the award today (Monday) at a ceremony held at the head office of Dubai Chamber, the business organisation that acts as a bridge between Dubai government and the Emirate’s private sector. The event was attended by officials from both parties, with Chairman of Dubai Chamber, H.E. Majid Saif Al Ghurair, presenting the certificate to Dulsco’s CEO, David Stockton, who received it on behalf of the company.
H.E. Majid Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry said: “We congratulate Dulsco for once again receiving the Dubai Chamber CSR Label, an honour that reflects the company’s strong commitment to raising its CSR and sustainability standards. Beyond the added recognition it provides, the Label serves as a benchmark which businesses in the region aspire to and we look forward to seeing more companies follow Dulsco’s example in the future.”
“I speak for everyone at Dulsco when I say that we are delighted to have received the Dubai Chamber CSR Label for the fourth time – proof of our continuous and unstinting commitment to the community. With CSR culture embedded into the fabric of the UAE, we are keen on delivering to our promise of powering better communities, not only through our integrated solutions, but also through giving back and enabling communities to operate and perform sustainably. This recognition will serve as a motivation for us to continue designing and launching diverse sustainable and innovative CSR activities,” said David Stockton.
The Dubai Chamber CSR Label evaluates companies’ approaches to CSR and sustainability across four key areas: Workplace, Marketplace, Community and Environment, with the Label providing specific guidelines for assessment in each of the areas. Dulsco’s awarding of the Label over the years has been achieved by its ability to demonstrate that CSR is an integral aspect of its DNA and reflects the quality of its HR practices, training and development programmes, community initiatives, and HSE practices.
The Dubai Chamber CSR Label has grown in significance to become the highest level of recognition for the CSR efforts of businesses. The Label is designed to help participating organisations to conduct a systematic assessment of their social and environmental impacts, have their CSR practices appraised by CSR experts, develop and improve their CSR programmes, and gain recognition for their CSR efforts.
Dulsco enjoys a high turnout of employee volunteers for its array of community based programmes that are focussed on education, environment, health advocacy, regional and global causes and employee volunteering. Dulsco’s employees have taken part in 31 CSR activities in 2019 designed to complement the company’s contributions to society that seek to power better and more sustainable communities.
