Imdaad calls for partnership on sustainable issues
FM firm calls for public-private partnership to address green concerns
Imdaad has urged government and private institutions to be more actively involved in public-private partnership (PPP) projects to deliver environmental and sustainable solutions.
According to Jamal Abdulla Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, PPP initiatives complement the strategic development plan of the UAE, in terms of promoting a sustainable socioeconomic growth and protecting the country's natural resources and environment.
"PPP initiatives that concern the environment and the sustainable management of built facilities are particularly important in light of present realities in the socioeconomic landscape,” he said.
“In this regard, facilities management providers will play a crucially important role in realising the strategic objectives of such PPP initiatives by providing the required expertise, know-how and specialised skills in facilities management."
The call for greater attention towards sustainable PPP initiatives was made in line with a UAE-wide environmental clean-up drive, which was supported by over 300 Imdaad employees, including senior managers.
Up to eight tons of wastes were collected during the clean-up at Jebel Ali Free Zone, in partnership with Economic Zones World (EZW).
The activity was part of the Clean Up UAE campaign, an initiative organised by Emirates Environmental Group that works between government and the business community to demonstrate their care for the environment.
"Imdaad's business model and its vision for the future are built around our passionate commitment to help protect and conserve the environment,” said Lootah.
“It is therefore important for us to cultivate a genuine concern for the environment among all members of our business organisation through meaningful activities such as the Clean Up UAE campaign.
“This is an activity that is driven not by commercial motives, but by our sense of responsibility and accountability. In this regard, we are extremely pleased with the enthusiastic response of our employees and management executives to the campaign and we hope to further cultivate such positive sentiment through similar activities in the future."
