TECOM Investments has adopted a sustainable development policy designed to align all of the organisation’s operations to global standards.

The new Renewable Energy Division will be headed by director Ali Bin Towaih and forms part of Dubai’s larger vision for sustainable development.

The initiative will be responsible for green buildings, energy and water conservation and management, value-added real estate and green power generation.
A key part of the organisation’s strategy will be the promotion of environmentally-friendly practices in Dubai.

TECOM intends to create an inhouse team of experts in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

With immediate effect it will construct all new buildings to LEED standards.

Existing TECOM buildings will be certified as green buildings over a period of time.

Part of TECOM’s energy needs will be serviced through power sources like solar energy, while its procurement policy will be amended to procure energy efficient office equipment.
