Our Middle East business joins the Emirates Green Building Council

We are now a member of the Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC), underscoring our commitment to advancing sustainable development practices in the United Arab Emirates and the rest of the region.

EmiratesGBC is a non-government organisation formed in 2006 with the goal of advancing green building principles for protecting the environment and ensuring sustainability in the United Arab Emirates

The membership-driven organisation promotes sustainable building practices for the construction sector, advocating for energy-efficient and environmentally friendly construction methods. They provide the tools, training, knowledge and networks to promote green building practices across the country and build a national movement that aims to positively influence the way developments are built. 

As a member of EmiratesGBC, we will actively participate in discussions, workshops and initiatives aimed at raising awareness around sustainable development and fostering innovation within the industry. 

Our involvement with EmiratesGBC reflects our commitment to delivering solutions that balance economic, social and environmental considerations. With our global network of experts and a growing team of sustainability consultants in the region, we are well-positioned to leverage our expertise as a net-zero delivery partner and collaborate with EmiratesGBC to drive positive change in sustainable construction practices. 

Lindsey Malcolm, Sustainability Lead, Middle East, said: 

Sustainability is at the core of our purpose of driving performance for a green, inclusive and productive world and joining the Emirates Green Building Council aligns our efforts with a prestigious organisation dedicated to driving sustainable change.

"With the world’s annual climate conference COP28 being hosted in the United Arab Emirates later this year, this partnership presents an exceptional opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge and collectively contribute to shaping a more environmentally responsible future together with our industry peers." 

Adam Ralph, Country Manager of our United Arab Emirates business, comments: 

Our decision to join EmiratesGBC is a strategic step towards fostering innovation, knowledge exchange and progress in sustainable construction practices.

"As a company, we remain committed to advancing our efforts on sustainability across the real estate, infrastructure and natural resources segments, while supporting initiatives that contribute positively to the environment and the communities in which we operate."
