Chairman, Emirates Green Building Council

Donna Sultan

A civil engineer by profession, Adnan Sharafi has more than 30 years experience in technical and management positions, both in the public and private sectors.

His research works have been published in peer-reviewed journals, and he is a certified lead auditor for the ISO 9000 Quality Management System among other professional considerations.

As chair of the EGBC, he plays an instrumental role in setting the strategy for sustainable development of the UAE, where the council’s latest proposal is for the creation of a financing scheme for the green retrofitting of existing buildings.

Sharafi explained: “With the nation now focusing on renewables and boosting the efficient use of existing resources, green buildings can complement the approach effectively by reducing power consumption, and one of the key issues is the lack of adequate financial support for retrofitting.”

Devout in his undertaking, Sharafi has also been closely involved with government organisations and the Dubai police in condition surveys and engineering investigations, and assisted the development various research facilities,.

These have included the Dubai Central Laboratories and the Dubai Accreditation Centre. EGBC’s chair is currently managing Al Arsh, a company specialised in facilities management services, energy management, and, himself a certified OAM, the management of owners associations.
