Farnek, a facilities management (FM) company based in the UAE, was awarded the Dubai Chamber Advanced CSR Label during a ceremony at the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry headquarters on March 15, the company announced in a Press release. The release added that Farnek is the first FM company to achieve this accolade and that to achieve the advanced status, the company’s approach to CSR and sustainability was assessed across seven areas, including workplace, marketplace, community and environment, in addition to stakeholders’ involvement, steering and governance.

Commenting on the award, Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek, said: “Sustainability and safety, as well as employee welfare and development, are fundamental to our business, and it is gratifying to be the first FM company to be recognised with the Dubai Chamber Advanced CSR Label.  Our CSR strategy has contributed significantly to four decades of business accomplishment in the UAE and will undoubtedly underpin our corporate strategy over the next forty years.” Oberlin also said that Farnek’s corporate integrity, service quality and safety, in terms of ISO 9001 quality management, energy efficiency and waste reduction were other areas of the business that were highly commended.

Nadia Ibrahim, Head of Consultancy, Farnek, added: “We will now be widely recognised as having the highest metric for assessing our own performance and compliance with quality standards and international best practice.” The release said that the Label serves as an assessment and development tool, enabling companies to implement CSR best practices and analyse their strategies and regulations in their efforts to curb the effects of their commercial activities on the environment and the community, in addition to being used in internal audits to evaluate and develop CSR policies.
