Environment, Health and Safety (EHS), the regulatory arm of Dubai World, had said that its design regulations for green buildings will be ready by the end of November.

The regulations will make sustainable development for any Dubai World-owned project compulsory and will govern water and energy efficiency plus environmentalimpact in the design and development of projects.

The regulations will address sustainability with the region's unique requirements in mind.

They have been shared and discussed with master developers of Dubai World, and relevant authorities within the organisation, and will be applied well ahead of time in light of the recent ruling of HH Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE vice president and Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai.

Under the ruling, all buildings in Dubai will have to be constructed according to environment-friendly green building standards from January 2008.

"The regulations for Dubai World areas will include important parameters like optimisation of energy and water resources, environment protection and use of automation etc, in line with international standards," said Ahmed Abdul Hussain, CEO, EHS.
