Dubai, UAE, 11 March 2019:   Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world's largest district cooling services provider, has been awarded Dubai Chamber CSR label, for the fifth year consecutively, for its outstanding contributions in promoting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and environmental practices that have positive impacts in society and on the environment.

“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.

Bin Shafar highlighted that the Dubai Chamber CSR Label is a highest level of  recognition for CSR efforts of businesses in the region and it contributes to build a responsible and sustainable business community and also promoting responsible individual and institutional practices that protect the environment. Dubai Chamber CSR Label aims to provide a management tool  for adopting CSR in business practices in Dubai and the UAE. Similarly, Empower seeks to achieve this vision, as part of its CSR strategy.

“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.

Dubai Chamber CSR Label has been designed to provide a free diagnostic framework, as well as a learning and development tool that will help companies define and improve their CSR strategy, policies, and management practices. Receiving this label confirms Empower's consecutive efforts in CSR and its commitment in developing CSR practices. 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.

Empower has more than 1,090 buildings that are using district cooling services, catering to around 100,000 customers.
