Emrill, the leading Facilities Management provider in the UAE, were recently awarded membership with Emirates Green Building Council in recognition for their active involvement and contribution towards sustainable energy solutions.
The Emirates Green Building Council (Emirates GBC) was formed in 2006, with the goal of advancing green building principles to protect the environment and ensure sustainability in the United Arab Emirates.
In 2013, Emrill made its mark as the leading facilities management company in the industry by launching Emrill Energy, a partnership with two global energy companies to provide complete energy engineering and efficiency solutions across the country. Emrill made history by becoming the only integrated facilities management company equipped to provide full service energy solutions from audit and analysis, to design and installation for residential and commercial buildings. Emrill Energy provides energy solutions for facilities as inefficient buildings with aged equipment and assets require assessment, auditing and enhancement to perform efficiently. Emrill Energy offers clients tailored solutions that can produce savings of up to 40% for buildings and developments.
Continuing with its mission to reduce carbon emissions, the company partnered with the largest independent community manager, Novus Community Management, in a landmark deal to reduce the environmental impact of all the residential and commercial buildings managed by Novus.
“Emrill is delighted to have been awarded membership with the Emirates Green Building Council. We look forward to working with Emirates GBC and contributing towards their mission to build a more sustainable and energy efficient environment in the United Arab Emirates,” said Simon Roopchand, General Manager, Emrill Energy.
Since the inception of the Emirates GBC in 2006, there has been significant change in the attitudes and demands related to the sustainable built environment. The country has seen an increase in the implementation of green building policies and regulations with the adoption of consistent rating systems, and a significant increase in the overall information and knowledge share available for built environments and communities.
