Dubai, UAE: Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has presented 36 companies with the Dubai Chamber CSR Label for their outstanding CSR efforts in the second half of 2020.
The Chamber recently hosted a virtual ceremony showcasing the companies’ achievements in corporate social responsibility (CSR), which was attended by representatives from the recognized organizations. In total, the Chamber has awarded 467 labels to companies since the programme was launched in 2010.
In his welcome remarks, H.E. Hisham Al Shirawi, 2nd Vice Chairman of Dubai Chamber, congratulated all the awarded companies and praised their strong commitment to CSR and sustainability. He described the Dubai Chamber CSR Label as a framework and development tool to help companies evaluate their CSR strategies, gain recognition for their efforts and improve their reputation, noting that the benefits of participating go far beyond recognition.
“During these unprecedented times, CSR has proven to be a very useful tool for businesses that have successfully navigated new challenges. More companies in Dubai have become consistent and systematic in their approach to CSR, while they are also aligning CSR with business strategies,” said H.E. Al Shirawi.
Awarded companies were applauded by Dubai Chamber’s Centre for Responsible Business for their initiatives and commitment to supporting and developing their CSR activities. Companies that apply to the programme benefit from detailed assessment reports on their workplace environmental and social impact, which analyze strategies and regulations and help organizations implement better CSR policies and practices.
Among the honorees, Phoenix Contact Middle East was awarded the Dubai Chamber CSR Label- Environment for the first time.
“I am very excited to announce that Phoenix Contact Middle East has been awarded the “CSR Label – Environment” category by the Dubai Chamber – Centre For Responsible Business, for the H2 Cycle 2020.
