Emirates Group recognised as one of UAE’s top 50 most sustainable companies

Receives Majra’s Platinum Impact Seal Award

Majra, the federal arm governing sustainable impact, sustainability, and CSR in the UAE, has awarded its Platinum Impact Seal Award to the Dubai-based Emirates Group for being among the UAE’s top 50 most sustainable companies.

The award ceremony took place during the 2023 World with Purpose summit, held in Dubai for the first time on November 7, 2023, under the patronage of the UAE Ministry of Economy and in partnership with Majra.

Majra’s Impact Seal measures, certifies and rewards organisations in the UAE for their sustainable impact practices.

Judging criteria

Companies partake in a Majra Impact Survey based on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UAE priorities. Organisations that score the highest are rewarded in one of three categories – Platinum, Gold or Silver.

Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, International Affairs, said: “The Emirates Group is proud to be recognised as one of the UAE’s most sustainable organisations with the Platinum Impact Seal.

“This achievement highlights our commitment to driving environmental progress and implementing sustainable business practices. At The Emirates Group, we believe industry collaborations are vital when addressing global challenges, and we are working closely with like-minded partners and stakeholders in the aviation ecosystem to develop sustainable innovations by joining resources and expertise.”

In May, Emirates, part of the Emirates Group, announced committing AED736 million ($200 million) to fund research and development projects focussed on reducing the impact of fossil fuels in commercial aviation.

Over the past year, the airline has undertaken sustainability initiatives aligning with its environmental policy.

The Emirates Group’s’ environmental policy is implemented through its Environmental Sustainability Framework, which promotes actions under three focus areas: reducing emissions, consuming responsibly, and preserving wildlife and habitats.
