The Sustainable City – the region’s first fully integrated sustainable community in Dubai – has won the ‘Green Residential Building’ accolade in the ‘Green Building of the Year’ category at the Emirates Green Building Council 2016 Awards.
Attended by Terri Wills, CEO at World Green Building Council, and representatives of the MENA Green Building Council Network, the awards ceremony and gala dinner were held last night at the Murooj Rotana Hotel in Dubai.
Diamond Developers representatives Faris Saeed, CEO, and Wassim Adlouni, Executive Director, received the accolade on behalf of the company at the event.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be recognized by the Emirates Green Building Council for the implementation of The Sustainable City. We are committed to supporting the Dubai government’s green economy initiatives and continually aim to be leaders in sustainable communities and residential developments,” said Faris Saeed.
Identifying and recognizing organizations for innovative and outstanding sustainable building principles and practices, the Emirates GBC Awards Programme honors companies that demonstrate clear implementation of sustainable design, construction or operation of buildings and structures.
