Additional measures will be introduced in all Azizi Development communities as part of its commitment to sustainability
Azizi Developments has announced that its community management provider, VCM, has signed an agreement with Imdaad to promote recycling within its communities. As part of this initiative, dozens of recycling bins and paper waste cages have been placed across 16 of the developer’s communities.
According to a statement, Azizi is now in talks with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to install electric vehicle chargers across its communities.
“Sustainability is one of Azizi’s core commitments, reflected in all of our projects, with environmental considerations being integrated wherever possible. We are pleased about the initiation of the agreement with Imdaad, augmenting our efforts in moving towards a healthy, sustainable ecosystem in line with Dubai Plan 2021,” said Azizi Developments’ executive director (Engineering) Mohammed Ragheb.
He added, “Through the provision of waste recycling bins at our doorsteps and several other concrete steps that we are taking, we are proud to contribute to the smart and environmentally friendly city of Dubai, where communities are clean, healthy, and sustainable.”
VCM general manager Jawad Hussain commented, “Through our partnership with Imdaad, we are ensuring that all international sustainability best practices are adhered to. Recycling bins and paper waste cages are merely the first step in this. We are now looking at integrating electric vehicle chargers, enhancing greenery around our developments, and much more. We look forward to sharing more announcements on this in the near future.”
He pointed out that VCM is also finalising contracts with sustainability focused companies, in line with Dubai’s environmental initiatives, and is also educating stakeholders on how to reduce waste and contribute to the preservation of the environment through organised educational sessions.
Imdaad Group CEO Jamal Abdulla Lootah stated, “Offering industry-leading integrated and turnkey sustainable solutions, we have been delivering superior value to our customers and we are delighted to partner with VCM to contribute to Azizi Developments’ journey in achieving its sustainability goals.”
He noted that the partnership represents his firm’s commitment to helping the UAE realise its vision of diverting 75% of all municipal solid waste away from landfills by 2021, through the promotion of effective recycling of commercial and industrial waste.
