PROJECT BACKGROUND

A new resolution on the implementation of green building specifications and standards in the emirates of Dubai has been issued by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Makhtoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and ruler of Dubai. As per the new resolution, effective on January 2008, all owners of residential and commercial buildings and properties in the emirates of Dubai must comply with the internationally recognized environment friendly specifications to turn Dubai into a healthy city that meets the demands of best practices and benchmarks of pollution-free sustainable development.

Implementing this resolution, Dubai becomes the first city in the Middle East to adopt green building specifications and requirements. The resolution falls in line with Sheikh Mohammed’s keen interest in dealing with the current environmental challenges.
