Dunia launches sustainability report
Dubai, January 14, 2014
Dunia Finance, a leading UAE-based finance company, has published its first corporate sustainability report, in line with its focus on building a robust best practice and corporate governance environment.
Since its inception in September 2008, dunia has adopted sustainability in the heart of its business.
Themed “Saving the Future”, dunia’s sustainability report followed a ‘triple bottom line’ concept that measures profits but also the organizational impact on people and the planet. The basis of this approach is that all companies are responsible to all their stakeholders – not just the shareholders but everyone the company deals with and has an impact on, said a statement.
Rajeev Kakar, managing director and CEO of dunia, said: “At dunia, we are truly committed to sustainability. We have built a strong and resilient business, which is focused on protecting the environment, empowering people, enabling success and enriching lives. We want this company to continue making a difference to the people and communities we serve.”
The report outlines the various programs and initiatives that dunia runs, including its approach to empowering, educating and nurturing talent within the organisation and supporting the development of individuals in their communities. The report describes dunia’s customer-centric approach and its focus on diversity and culture, as it does detail how dunia invests heavily in its people, enhancing leadership and particularly developing UAE-national talent. – TradeArabia News Service
