UDC wins Qatar Today’s Green award
Doha, December 5, 2010
United Development Company (UDC), the master-developer of The Pearl-Qatar, won the 'Qatar Today Green Awards,' for the second consecutive year. However, this year the Qatari firm shared the honours with Aecom.
Aecom is a global consultancy which provides environmental solutions for private and public clients around the world.
The ‘Green Organization’ award acknowledges organizations which can demonstrate a commitment to organizational sustainability and towards creating a green workplace.
UDC technical director Jerry Jackson received the award at a glittering ceremony held at The Four Seasons Hotel recently.
“The strong showing by Qatari organizations at these awards provides proof that local organizations are forging ahead with greener environmental practices,' he remarked.
'For our part, UDC works very hard to ensure our environmental practices meet and, where possible, exceed best international practices. Our environmental policies and procedures are aimed at creating environmental best practice not only in our operational activities but right across the entire spectrum of our business,' Jackson added.-TradeArabia News Service
