Transguard Group Achieves Dubai Chamber CSR Advanced Label
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Leading business solutions provider Transguard Group is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Dubai Chamber CSR Advanced Label in recognition of its outstanding CSR efforts. The award was presented yesterday during a virtual ceremony.
“Our focus on CSR has always been clear, but over the past few years we have continued to hone our approach to not only reflect market realities but also to set the bar for our industry,” states Dr. Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “Achieving the Dubai Chamber CSR Advanced Label is a defining moment for our programme and I am proud to have the efforts of our dedicated team, as well as the entire business, recognized by Dubai Chamber.”
Transguard Group achieved a score of 73.1% and received high marks in all categories, particularly Marketplace and Environment. Some key strengths noted by the assessment team include Transguard’s Sustainability Report, which was published in early 2021; its successful alignment to UAE Vision 2021, UAE Energy Strategy 2050 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals; its ability to demonstrate responsible energy and water efficiency; its data protection and privacy efforts through its certified ISO 27001 information services management systems; its establishment of various happiness and well-being initiatives for both management and site-based employees and its stakeholder engagement practices, among many others.
“Achieving the Dubai Chamber CSR Advanced Label is another example that corporate social responsibility is more than a buzzword at Transguard,” says Lena ter Laare, Director-Marketing and CSR. “Instead, it is a throughline in everything we do, whether that’s for our staff, in our business or with our clients. Every day, our teams live out Transguard’s commitment to sustainable, responsible practices, and while this is a gratifying achievement it is also serves to galvanize our efforts across the business to do even more.”
This is the second award from Dubai Chamber for the business solutions provider; in 2020, Transguard Group was awarded the Dubai Chamber CSR Label.
