Dubal wins top CSR accolade
Dubai, September 30, 2012
Dubai Aluminium (Dubal), a leading aluminium smelter, was recently awarded the Dubai Chamber 2012 CSR Label, which honours the company’s efforts towards sustainability.
The accolade was presented at a dedicated ceremony hosted by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry Centre for Responsible Business at the Dubai Chamber’s premises.
Sultan Al Sabri, vice president, Human Resources & Organisational Effectiveness, who received the award on behalf of Dubal, said: “Over the 33 years since its inception, Dubal grown through successive expansions to a production capacity of more than one million metric tonnes of hot metal a year, thereby becoming one of the world’s largest single-site producers of primary aluminium.”
“In 1979, our site’s location 35km outside Dubai was remote from other developments. Since then, the city has also expanded dramatically and today Dubal has many close neighbours, both residential and industrial. Having always applied an integrated strategy based on a sustainable business philosophy, Dubal has consistently created value for all our stakeholders in the three dimensions of triple bottom-line reporting – namely economic, environmental and social.
“Indeed, sustainable development and corporate social responsibility are operating imperatives at Dubal. We are nevertheless delighted to have received the Dubai Chamber 2012 CSR Label in this, our first round of participation in the award,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
