In recent years, a consensus has emerged across economic, political and social sectors that emphasises the importance of responsible operations in all spheres of corporate activity. Now accepted as a benchmark for good practice, transparent social and environmental responsibility has become an essential part of business planning.
As a company with interests that have a wide range of possible environmental impacts and involving contributions from diverse groups of participants, UDC insists upon the highest standards of corporate social responsibility across its entire portfolio. The welfare of employees, the environmental consequences of project activities, and the amenity of those living in the vicinity of UDC operations rank as considerations of equal importance to traditionally defined profitability.
UDC’s objectives for responsible practice are entirely aligned to the wider goals of sustainable economic and social development in Qatar, around the Gulf Region and beyond. All UDC enterprises embrace the principle that constant monitoring and improvement in the field of corporate social and environmental responsibility makes a tangible contribution to sustaining medium and long-term profitability.
