Selected “Best Newcomer” in region at CSR Arabia Awards

Aldar Properties, the Abu Dhabi-based property development, management and investment company has announced that it has been selected as the “Best Newcomer” for its work in the field of sustainability at the 2010 Arabia CSR Awards, held in Dubai recently.

First launched in 2008, and supported by the United Nations Global Compact, the awards were created to recognise organisations in the Arab region that demonstrate outstanding leadership and commitment to corporate sustainability and promote CSR as an essential element of a successful business model, the announcement explained.

According to Aldar, earlier this year, it issued its first sustainability report with an aim to demonstrate the company’s approach to sustainability, showcase its accomplishments in the area and outline the company’s future direction, as it sought to embed sustainability into its operations. Aldar added that it is an elected member of the General Secretariat of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group (ADSG) and is a key contributor to the overall direction of the group, comprising 20 leading government, private and NGO organisations in the Emirate, which are committed to the adoption of sustainability reporting and management.

Commenting on the win, Andrew Broderick, Director of EHSS, Sustainability & CSR, said: “I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of everyone at Aldar. Taking sustainability seriously is more than a “should” do; it is a “must” do, not only for the preservation and protection of natural resources and society, but also for the true and lasting success of any business.”
