“Emirates Steel is committed to the highest standards of sustainability and efficiency in all projects and initiatives. Receiving the Platinum Rating for green buildings from LEED highlights our sustainability efforts and leadership. This supports the national plans and strategies promoting natural resources’ sustainability, energy and water conservation, and adopting green practices in every facet of our lives,” said Saeed Ghumran Al Remeithi, CEO of Emirates Steel.

“Our existing headquarter and warehouse building have been upgraded to fulfill the green buildings’ standards.
