Summertown Interiors wins Dubai chamber honours

DUBAI, April 3, 2016

Summertown Interiors, the UAE’s leading fit-out contractor specialising in green interiors, has been awarded the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) label by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) for the fourth time due to its ongoing commitment to sustainable business practices.

Launched in 2010, the CSR Label seeks to highlight the efforts of organisations towards corporate social responsibility and sustainability in the region.

Summertown was one of 20 UAE-based companies that received the accolade from the DCCI’s second vice-chairman Hisham Al Shirawi.

Based on an assessment of four key pillars – workplace, marketplace, community and environment – Summertown has increased its overall certification score by 17 per cent and exceeds the label average by over 25 per cent compared to its peers in the UAE, said a statement from the company.

Particular recognition was given to the steps the company is undertaking to attain Leed EBom (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance) certification as part of its bid to achieve carbon neutrality by 2020.

"We are proud as an SME (small and medium enterprise) to receive this award alongside major international companies who are deemed real leaders in the field of sustainability. We have come a long way since we embarked on our journey and we’re immensely proud of our achievements," said Paul Briers, the projects director, at Summertown, who received the award.   

Established in 1997, Summertown has been at the forefront of delivering commercial interior projects in the UAE and was the country’s first fit-out contractor to occupy Leed Gold certified interiors, said the statement.

“As a company that walks the talk, our clients, partners and the business community have always been at the forefront of our operations - we look to inspire and help other companies to integrate CSR practices into their business strategy so it becomes the standard modus operandi, both in the UAE and worldwide,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
