Faris Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers – the property and real estate developer behind The Sustainable City – accepted the accolades on behalf of the company and commented: “It is an honour to receive these awards, which demonstrate that we have fulfilled our two key objectives at The Sustainable City – to make sustainable living a reality and to ensure the happiness of our residents in line with both the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy and the Dubai Plan 2021. For the first time, families are enjoying a sustainable, healthy, safe lifestyle as part of a happy community that does not harm the environment, and we are delighted to have been recognised for this important achievement.”
The prestigious ‘Happiest Community’ award recognises the community that has the highest happiness rate from the perspective of its residents, homeowners and service providers, and stands as a model for the ideal happy community by offering a rich lifestyle and a positive sense of belonging. The award for ‘Best Real Estate Developer – Sustainable Green Development’ goes to the developer that has done the most to construct progressive, innovative, environmentally sound and resource efficient buildings, meeting strict sustainability criteria and improving the lifecycle of buildings to positively shape the future.
Faris Saeed concluded: “These awards motivate us to strengthen our efforts and forge ahead with the next phase of development at The Sustainable City, which will play an important role in furthering the Dubai government’s flagship sustainability initiatives as well as the wider global sustainability movement. We are proud to be offering the world a blueprint for sustainable, clean and happy living.”
