Egis, the leading international multidisciplinary engineering, consulting and operations firm, has entered into a new strategic partnership with the Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC) by becoming an industry partner, the highest level of membership in the council.
EmiratesGBC is a non-government organization that promotes and educates on sustainability in the built environment in UAE. EmiratesGBC is an established member, which is the highest level of membership, in the World Green Building Council.
Egis has been providing sustainability services across the world for over 50 years, and the company’s partnership with EmiratesGBC is a reflection of its commitment to promoting sustainable practices in the Middle East. As an industry partner, Egis will work closely with EmiratesGBC to promote the adoption of sustainable building practices and technologies in the region.
The company will also be able to contribute its knowledge and expertise to the development of regenerative design solutions, sustainable practices, and help businesses in the region to reduce their carbon footprint, minimize waste, and adopt more sustainable practices to advocate the region’s aspirations towards Carbon Neutrality.
This partnership will enable Egis to contribute its extensive experience in sustainable development and engineering to EmiratesGBC’s initiatives and events, while also gaining valuable insights into the challenges faced by the construction industry across the value chain.
“We are pleased to join forces with EmiratesGBC during the “Year of Sustainability” in the UAE and to support the transition towards more sustainable building practices in the country. At Egis, sustainability is the core part of our business strategy, and we believe that this partnership will enable us to make a real impact in the region. We will also closely collaborate with EmiratesGBC towards effective and fruitful participation in UNFCCC’s COP28 in Dubai. COP28 is especially significant because it comes at a critical time when the world is facing an unprecedented climate emergency. As such, we will have to ensure, bold actions are taken and effective decisions are made, to address the urgent climate crisis.”
EmiratesGBC provides its members with a platform for networking, knowledge-sharing, and developing sustainable business practices. As a partner, Egis will have access to a network of sustainability experts, opportunities for collaboration and partnerships, as well as training and educational programs on sustainability-related topics.
“We are delighted to welcome Egis as an industry partner of the Emirates Green Building Council. We believe that Egis’ expertise and commitment to sustainability will be valuable in driving sustainable development in the UAE and beyond,” said Dr. Ali Aljassim, Chairman of EmiratesGBC.
Egis’ partnership with EmiratesGBC reaffirms its commitment to sustainable business practices and reinforces its role as a leading provider of sustainable engineering solutions in the region.
