Posted 2 April 2021 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi Ports has become the first-ever company from the Middle East to win a prestigious international CSR award from the UK-based CSR Accreditation (CSRA).

 

The awards body granted its highest Gold Accreditation for excellence in corporate social responsibility (CSR) to Abu Dhabi’s premier global trade and logistics enabler following an independent assessment by an accreditation panel. 

Abu Dhabi Ports was rated across four areas: environment, philanthropy, community, and workplace. 

CSRA highlighted the company’s progressive policies with respect to its promoting of environmentally sound and sustainable climate change mitigation measures, including energy efficiency and water optimisation; its philanthropic partnerships with leading international bodies such as Make-A-Wish-Foundation and the Red Crescent; as well as the organisation’s wide range of engaging training programmes and activities dedicated to advancing the wellbeing, education, and health and safety of both its employees and Abu Dhabi’s wider community.

Mohammed Al Tamimi, VP - Corporate HSSE, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “This accreditation reaffirms Abu Dhabi Ports ceaseless commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, and recognises the positive impact of sustainability on our business in line with international targets for global development such as the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“Claiming this highly-sought Gold rating from one of the world’s most influential and respected CSR bodies is testament to Abu Dhabi Ports’ sterling efforts to advance global best practices, enabling us to strengthen our CSR strategy and achieve our long-term strategic goals.

“Being recognised by global bodies such as CSRA is not only a great honour for Abu Dhabi team, but it also offers us tangible benefits that will positively impact the future of our business by supporting our efforts to attract more investment, while also enabling us to communicate with customers in new ways.”
