The real estate group MAF attaches a lot of importance to sustainability in all its activities. “Over the past decade environmental awareness has grown considerably in the United Arab Emirates,” according to Glenn Dawson, Senior Manager Operational Procurement at MAF. “The government encourages businesses and consumers to use energy and water in a more sustainable manner. As one of the leading project developers in the region, we realise that we have a major responsibility in this narrative and aim to play a pioneering role.”
MAF implements this commitment. “We strive for LEED Gold-certification for all our new projects and also invest heavily in the LEED certification for our existing buildings – where necessary we undertake renovation projects. In addition, we aim to save 15% energy and water in all our shopping centres over the next three years. Our commitment is for that matter not limited to projects we complete in the United Arab Emirates,but applies to all countries in which we are active.” Obviously the group raised the bar for the renovation of its own headquarters. “Our new headquarters had to become a model of sustainability, which immediately makes it clear to staff, customers, and business partners that we are serious about our commitment,” states Glenn Dawson. No cost or effort was spared to create a sustainable, healthy and comfortable working environment in all areas – use of water and energy, ergonomics, use of material.
