Imdaad announced it is "gradually replacing" its chemical pesticides with organic bio-chemical variants. 

In a statement, the IFM provider said the move is in line with its CSR projects and Green Environment initiative, which is carried out with Imdaad's pest control division. 

Imdaad's pest control division aims to ensure that "a significant percentage of the total chemical purchase in 2016" includes organic bio-chemicals. 

Remarking on the move, Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, said: "We are excited to pursue this new programme as this is an important aspect of our Green Environment initiatives.

"We are currently developing a strategy for its gradual implementation so that we can make this change across all our projects." 

Green pesticides are yet to find widespread market acceptance, but a growing awareness of the side effects of conventional pesticide could change this. 

Bio-pesticides can target particular pests and specific areas and are more effective even in small quantities.

They are known to be environmentally friendly and reduces risk of prolonged exposure for operators.
