H.E. Al Ghurair said: “We are very encouraged by the growing number of honourees that we meet each time we host this ceremony, as it demonstrates the label’s ability to encourage other businesses to adopt more responsible practices.”
He urged them to continue the hard work and set new targets that will take their CSR and sustainability efforts to the next level.
On their part, the honourees lauded the role of Dubai Chamber in providing them with a framework to benchmark and enhance their CSR performance, as well as the opportunity to promote their activities, and to enhance their reputation as leaders in achieving sustainability.
Since its launch, the Dubai Chamber CSR Label has served as a diagnostic framework and a CSR and sustainability management tool for the participating companies to gauge their approach to CSR best practices, and asses their organisations’ impact on the environment and the local community.
The CSR Label is open to all organisations, private or public, regardless of their size, sector, or operations, and can make a major difference to a company’s reputation, efficiency and productivity. The success of participating companies depends on how CSR objectives are set and communicated to all of their stakeholders.
