ADCCI and Hertech Partner to Drive Private Sector Climate Neutrality

by Madaline Dunn

The Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI) has announced a cooperation agreement with Hertech Ltd, aimed at providing “innovative” digital sustainability solutions to ADCCI members and private sector representatives in Abu Dhabi to drive private sector climate neutrality.

It was shared that these solutions will support efforts to achieve environmental sustainability, promote sustainable economic development, and motivate companies to improve their overall performance and digital capabilities.

The two parties will develop customised strategies for private sector companies to integrate and apply best practices in digital sustainability through their online digital platforms. 

The cooperation aims to improve companies’ awareness of digital carbon footprints and their environmental impact by providing guidance on achieving climate neutrality. 

It is also aimed at enhancing cooperation through joint workshops and training courses to improve private sector companies’ knowledge of environmental sustainability and the adoption of the highest governance and social and environmental responsibility standards.

His Excellency Ahmed Khalifa Al Qubaisi, CEO of the ADCCI, commented: “This partnership aligns with the Abu Dhabi Chamber’s efforts to support environmental and economic sustainability. It also contributes to incentivizing private sector companies to adopt the highest standards of governance and social and environmental responsibility to contribute to enhancing flexibility and business growth. This is in line with the National Agenda for Economic Development and Abu Dhabi’s vision of transitioning into the Green Falcon Economy.

“The Abu Dhabi Chamber will continue its efforts to support the private sector and enhance its contributions to the national economy and environmental sustainability, by exploring ways to cooperate with local and international government and private entities in this field. We will also launch initiatives and projects that improve the business ecosystem, enhancing diversity, competitiveness, and sustainable growth,” he added.

Farrah Washash, Founder and Managing Director of Hertech Ltd, said: “We find ourselves at a pivotal stage where achieving digital sustainability is essential, not just for environmental considerations but also for enhancing business prospects. As the global reliance on digital platforms for commerce intensifies so does the demand for increased energy and resources. 

“Strengthening these foundations with sustainable resources and green energy, employing best-practice design, and implementing robust development practices will enable us to make a substantial positive impact on reducing our carbon footprint. We take great pride in being active partners in this ongoing effort for transformative change with the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce.”
