A delegation from Dubai Properties (DP) visited ‘The Sustainable City’ (TSC) – the region’s first fully integrated and operational sustainable community – in Dubai this week.

The DP party was led by HE Mohammed Al Habbai, Chief Officer for Urban Planning and Infrastructure of Dubai Properties and other top management representatives and their visit focused primarily on strengthening partnership ties between Dubai Properties and Diamond Developers.

In welcoming the DP delegation, Engineer Faris Saeed, the CEO and Co-Founder of Diamond Developers, stressed that The Sustainable City’s innovative concept, unique components and state-of-the-art facilities are considered a world first. The project is also in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.

Commenting on the occasion, Faris Saeed said: “We’re honoured to welcome HE Mohammed Al Habbai to The Sustainable City. We took the opportunity to discuss with them how establishing a development such as this one is in accordance with the green vision of the city of Dubai and helps to lower its carbon footprint, with zero emissions and a 50% reduction in electricity among its many environmentally friendly features. Our thanks go to them for their visit today and we appreciate their sterling support now and in the future.”

“We’re pleased to have been invited to see the development of The Sustainable City – the first sustainability project in Dubai focused on the green economy. We endorse – and will support – this unique project, which is a blueprint for sustainable living globally, thereby assuring Dubai of its place as the leader in the field of sustainability worldwide,” said Mohammed Al Habbai.
