Sustainability Network expands to over 50 members

With a new member, AGL Coca-Cola joining in, the Sustainability Network’s membership has gone up to 51 companies. Two of the members – Tristar and Majid Al Futtaim Properties – who have recently produced Sustainability Reports talk about the challenges and benefits of reporting on their company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) and share their reporting journey in this issue.

As a Sustainability Network member, the Chalhoub Group is featured for its Gift of Giving Campaign during Ramadan when the company distributed 12,000 plus backpacks made of 100% recycled plastic bottles to 6,000 plus underprivileged students in the UAE and region reinforcing the link between education and environmental responsibility.

In its ‘Sustainability Network Interview Series’, the newsletter features Mr. Simon Webb, Managing Director of AF Carillion who talks about his company’s strong commitment to health and safety and its impact on the quality of people’s lives as well as their approach to embedding responsible business practices.

The newsletter covers Engage Dubai’s new community partners including Growing Leaders Foundation (GLF), Skyline University College and Stepping Stones while the Dubai Chamber Sustainability Directory shares the story of a Sustainability Network member (National Bank of Abu Dhabi) and company (BiteRite) working together to deliver healthy meals at the Bank.

Also, the newsletter covers the Climate Change seminar which the Centre for Responsible Business (CRB) organised in collaboration with EWS-WWF and carries an article on Marketplace Leadership in the Dubai Chamber CSR Label framework as well as new case studies from the CSR case study bank. CRB established in 2004 by Dubai Chamber, fosters corporate integrity promoting Dubai as the region’s gateway for global commerce by promoting transparency and rule of law. It is the leading centre of expertise in business ethics and corporate social responsibility in Dubai.
