The Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group (ADSG) announced the winners of the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Business Leadership Awards 2020 today. Organised by the ADSG, and launched in 2015, it is the region’s only independent annual awards for sustainability achievements. They are designed to showcase sustainability best practices and to raise awareness about the benefits of sustainable management practices for organisations.

The winners are selected based on outstanding initiatives and examples of a strong commitment to sustainability, by embracing innovative approaches and showing a clear understanding of the strategic importance of sustainability in their organisation.

Commenting on the award, Yusuffali said, “I am indeed honoured to receive this prestigious award as the Sustainability Leader of the Year. Giving back to the society and implementing sustainability initiatives for both local communities and global organisations have always been centric to our retail business. Going forward, we will do our best to preserve the key principles of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in protecting the environment and being socially responsible.”

“I would like to congratulate the winners of the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Business Leadership Awards 2020, and commend all organisations that made submissions to this year’s Awards. As we start the recovery period post-COVID-19 during these unprecedented times, we are presented with an opportunity to ensure that we do this in a structured manner with an environmental improvement agenda to help rebuild an economy that is better prepared to deal with future risks such as those related to climate change,” added Dr. Shaikha Salem Al Dhaheri, secretary-general of the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD).
