Summertown Interiors – one of the UAE’s leading interiors fit-out contractors – has received its first ‘CSR Label’ from the Dubai Chamber of Commerce. The accolade was presented last month in recognition of Summertown’s efforts to promote sustainability both externally through its projects and internally through its HR practices.
Summertown Interiors was the only SME among nine companies to be presented with the ‘CSR Label’ in September. The group also included Dubai based multinationals deemed leaders in sustainable business practices by the Dubai Chamber
Summertown Interiors scored higher than the average CSR Label achievers’ score in three of the four areas assessed. According to Dubai Chamber, Summertown’s ‘Eco-Leaders’ programme and HR practices were significant contributors to the company receiving the award.
Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Jimmy Lynch, General Manager of Summertown Interiors said, “The Dubai Chamber CSR Label follows extremely high standards of sustainable best practice and we are honoured to receive such an endorsement of our approach to CSR. Sustainability forms the cornerstone of Summertown’s CSR strategy and we are committed to fostering and promoting business practices that ultimately lead to the betterment of the community and environment in which we operate.”
