“We are happy to receive the Dubai Chamber CSR Label, as it proves our commitment towards positive change, supports society and promotes sustainable development. I appreciate Dubai Chamber's tremendous efforts in promoting CSR approach, especially towards the environment,” said Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.

“Empower's efforts and initiatives focus on promoting environmental practices in all its work, both operational and services. This supports achieving the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into a global hub for clean energy and green economy and strengthen its position to become the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world, as well as the UAE Vision 2021, that aims to make the UAE among the best countries in the world by the Golden Jubilee of the Union ,” added Bin Shafar.

The label was designed according to the highest and best global standards, to meet the needs of companies in the Middle East, particularly in the UAE and Dubai.
