CCC’s First Annual Sustainability Competition
CCC had made its first formal internal commitments towards sustainability in 2012, by far a lead position in the MENA region. By 2015, we had established a number of policies concentrating on embedding sustainability across our business operations.
Late 2017 we launched our first annual Sustainability Competition, aiming to further integrate sustainability within our organization’s culture.
The competition was split in two categories covering offices (project or area based) and camps sites. The criteria set for evaluating the entries considered all three dimensions of sustainable development – environmental, economic and societal to demonstrate applications under the below categories:
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Efficiency
- Waste Management
- Transportation Management
- Renewable Energy
- Economic, Behavioral & Environmental Impacts
The competition granted the winners and their projects prestigious prizes and broad recognition across the group for their best practices. The teams involved in the winning activity were dispatched to famous green topics conferences to scout out for more such innovative solutions. These specialized conferences were:
- 50th Waste Expo, Las Vegas, USA
- Symposium on Urban Mining and Circular Economy, Bergamo, Italy
- World Waste to Energy and Recourses Summit, London, UK
- Smarter E Europe, Munich, Germany
The best practices captured from the competition process and the cutting edge international conferences were shared and disseminated throughout CCC. This was done with the intention of keeping Sustainability at high momentum within the organization and catalyzing innovative ideas and strategies applicable to CCC and the Engineering space.
