Dubai, UAE: The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Centre for Responsible Business (CRB) recently organised a training session which aimed to familiarise companies with the Dubai Chamber CSR Label framework and application process.
The session, hosted at Dubai Chamber’s premises, was attended by prospective applicants representing over 15 companies in Dubai who were briefed on the criteria that businesses must meet to qualify for the Label, in addition to the associated scoring system and online tool that are used to evaluate performance.
The second cycle of Dubai Chamber CSR Label for 2018 is currently open and interested companies will have until September 13th 2018 to express their interest online.
Earlier this year, the CRB introduced an enhanced version of the Dubai Chamber CSR Label and an Advanced Category of the CSR Label in response to growing interest among companies in Dubai that are keen to continuously improve their CSR strategies and practices.
The key features of the improved CSR Label include a streamlined and standardised scoring system, new assessment parameters for practices and policies, and an online application and evaluation system.
The CRB was established by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2004 to support and promote corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability. The Centre’s objective is to engage the Dubai business community in assuming greater responsibility for the emirate’s social and environmental needs.
The CRB also promotes Dubai as the GCC’s gateway for global commerce by offering its business partners an environment of transparency and rule of law.
