Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, has announced that it has recently launched a new eco-friendly corporate website, reaffirming the company’s commitment to adopt green technologies and practices across all its operations. The initiative is part of Imdaad’s strategy to promote sustainable practices in facilities management, which the company says should also cover online assets and resources in light of the increasing energy consumption of web-based activities.
Imdaad pointed out studies revealing a spike in energy consumption of data centre servers that run internet applications and in households worldwide as people become more engaged in online activities such as web surfing, video-on-demand, music downloads, internet telephony and other web-based applications. Explaining the environmental impact of the design of its new eco-friendly website, Imdaad noted a study by the University of California, which shows that a website with a dark background will save up to 48 per cent of energy for a CRT and up to 15 per cent of energy for an LCD compared to a website with a light-coloured background.
Jamal Abdulla Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “The launch of Imdaad’s new eco-friendly corporate website is a strong reaffirmation that our commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly business practices covers the entire breadth of our operations. Imdaad examines every detail and constantly searches for new ways to further improve the quality of our services, allowing us to pioneer innovative solutions and ultimately set new standards in the delivery of FM services. We will certainly continue to explore innovative ways to revolutionise the FM industry and enable clients and the greater society to benefit from a clean, safe and healthy living and working environment.”
Imdaad has introduced a variety of new elements to help minimize the carbon footprint of its new eco-friendly website, including more lightweight web content, strict adherence to accepted environmental standards, and optimised usability of the website’s key features.
Imdaad has been a leading proponent of environment-friendly technologies and sustainable business practices in the FM industry. The company has introduced numerous pioneering initiatives that have improved Imdaad’s business and environmental performance, while delivering practical benefits to customers, employees and the society in general.
