Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s multi-faceted renewable energy company, has won the coveted award for ‘Best Contribution to the Reputation of Procurement Profession’ at the CIPS MENA Supply Management Awards 2012, held last week at the W Hotel in Doha, Qatar.
The award was presented to Masdar’s Head of Procurement, Zuhu Moussa, for the renewable energy company’s sustainable supply chain portal, ‘The Future Build’ (www.thefuturebuild.com) - the first resource of its kind to originate in the Arab world, charged with sharing sustainable supply chain knowledge and advancing sustainable products.
Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, Director of Corporate Services and Financial Affairs at Masdar, said: “We are delighted to be recognized by our peers through this prestigious award. At Masdar, we continue to strive for excellence in all that we do. The Future Build portal was designed and implemented to provide the building community with a range of online and offline tools and services to assist them in achieving their sustainable building objectives - in an efficient, cost-effective manner. This accolade is a testimony to the efforts of our team at Masdar who have worked tirelessly to successfully bridge the gaps between the building communities through this portal.”
An initiative of Masdar City, an integrated unit of Masdar and one of the most sustainable cities in the world, The Future Build portal hosts a database of independently assessed sustainable building products and materials, as well as updated news, new products, articles and features relevant to the field. The portal also offers an unrivalled supply chain resource to serve the sustainability needs of architects, engineers and contractors, developers and owners, as well as manufacturers and suppliers of sustainable building products and technologies.
The CIPS MENA Supply Management Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts and senior procurement professionals from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. This year’s winners in other various award categories include TDIC, Dubai Aluminium and Novartis.
