Imdaad has signed a three year contract with Emaar to undertake waste management and recycling for the Burj Khalifa.

The FM company will collect and dispose solid waste and collect all recyclable material generated from the entire building, including its 1044 residential apartments, on a daily basis.

"Delivering waste management solutions to one of the world's most prestigious buildings is something we look forward to with great enthusiasm. Our agreement with Burj Khalifa is indeed a major milestone in Imdaad's development and testifies to the world-class services provided by us,” said Imdaad CEO Jamal Lootah.

Imdaad, in conjunction with Burj Khalifa's management team, will develop and operate an environment management system. This will include monitoring systems to ensure compliance with sustainability requirements.

"Burj Khalifa is setting benchmarks in sustainable development through several concerted initiatives. A focus on recycling is one of the key pillars in this sustainability drive. We will continue to focus on initiatives that will enhance energy and water use efficiency, with an emphasis on global best practices in our environmental management system," said Emaar Properties CEO Issam Galadari.
