He noted that Dubai Chamber recently presented the Label to 18 companies that were recognized for their CSR and sustainability efforts in the first half of 2018, adding that a total of 344 companies have received the Label since its launch in 2010.

Mahdi Mohammed, Dulsco’s Director of Business Support Services, said: “We are honoured to be receiving this recognition from the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which has long championed corporate social responsibility among the business community in Dubai and been at the fore of efforts to promote sustainability and give back to the community.”

David Stockton, Dulsco’s CEO and Managing Director said “Dulsco has always been a sustainability leader in its own right. Our CSR programme has accomplished more than 860 volunteering hours for 32 different CSR activities in 2018.
