DUBAI, February 27, 2017

For the fifth year in a row, Ducab, a leading cable manufacturing company,  has been awarded the Dubai Chamber CSR Label in recognition of initiatives and communications around Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Ducab, owned equally by Investment Corporation Dubai (ICD) and Abu Dhabi’s Senaat, achieved the label with a high score of 84 per cent.

The award was presented by Majid Saif Al Ghurair, chairman of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and received by Mohammad A Al Qurashi, general manager government affairs, Ducab, during a ceremony held at Dubai Chamber’s premises.  

Al Ghurair said: “We are delighted to see the continued interest on the part of businesses in using the CSR Label to improve their practices. The companies earning the label have come a long way in their journey to leverage corporate social responsibility and sustainability.”

Dubai Chamber’s chairman added that the recognised businesses will serve as source of inspiration for the wider UAE business community, and encourage more companies to develop CSR programmes and adopt best practices in this area.

Andrew Shaw, managing director, Ducab, said: “Working with the Dubai Chamber on their CSR Label exercise over the years has enabled us to make our CSR outreach more strategic and effective. As a proud UAE company, Ducab understands its responsibility towards society and nation, and our efforts to streamline and professionalise this emotional connect has paid off with consistent – and improving – performance metrics.”

Within the Dubai Chamber CSR Label results document, the assessment of Ducab said: “This is the fifth year that Ducab applies for the Label. This time it has achieved 84 per cent of the maximum score, a significant improvement from its 2015 score of 81 per cent due to its leadership commitment to continuous improvement on its CSR and sustainability agenda. It has also scored higher than the average in all areas.” – TradeArabia News Service
