A concerted approach that encompasses all aspects of the supply chain is critical in driving environment-friendly growth initiatives. The Future Build Portal is an effective process that enables sustainable practices across the entire building sector, and it complements Emirates Green Building Council's overarching goal of promoting thought-leadership strategies that drive the development of greener buildings in the country.
The Future Build directory is a natural step to reach a comprehensive sustainable platform where demand can meet supply in a fully trustful and certified environment established by Masdar's experience and knowledge. UAE Business Council for Sustainable Development is fully supporting this initiative.
It is crucial to facilitate the development of a more sustainable construction sector in order to help tackle the UAEs high per capita ecological footprint. Developing such portals and tools are an important step in this process and I hope this is used by professionals in the construction industry to find more sustainable materials as well as to innovate and advance the adoption of green building materials and products.
"Knowledge is power and the Future Build Portal is a source of knowledge that no-one undertaking 'green' construction should be without. Companies with innovative and sustainable building products would be throwing away a major opportunity by not using it to publicise themselves." John Crawford, Deputy Director for Energy, UK Trade & Investment.
With the Future Build Portal, companies are presented with an unrivalled opportunity to get an independent classification that will actively help promote their products through one of the staunchest regulations on the market. It is our belief and mission to get as many Swedish companies involved with the Future Build Portal to create synergies in order to further promote Swedish technological know-how, not only to Masdar, but to use the Future Build Portal as a platform for other regional ventures.
