Diamond Developers has recently launched The Diamond Innovation Centre, a dedicated facility designed to advance progress in the field of sustainability. Announced in line with the UAE Innovation Week 2015, the new initiative is part of The Sustainable City, the region's first fully integrated sustainable community. The facility has been established to explore and promote ideas that safeguard important natural resources.
The first institution of its kind in the UAE, The Diamond Innovation Centre will facilitate the study of environmentally friendly and renewable practices and forms a major component of The Sustainable City's offerings. It will host innovative study programmes, provide professional training and be at the forefront of formulating international standards and measurements.
''The Diamond Innovation Centre is a groundbreaking new centre that marks the start of a new era in the field of sustainable studies in the region,'' said Faris Saeed, CEO of Diamond Developers. ''There is a great deal to be done to head the Middle East towards an environmentally sustainable future and this facility has been set up to lead the way by addressing both regional and global challenges. We are delighted to be at the forefront of what is an exciting time for sustainability with our new Diamond Innovation Centre.''
The Diamond Innovation Centre will provide premium training courses and sustainability consulting services and host sustainability exhibitions and conferences. It also intends to provide scholarships to students in universities and to arrange reciprocal study programmes with other similar centres.
''The centre will be the first negative lifecycle footprint building in the region, over its 50-year lifespan, the building will produce 140 per cent of its energy requirements,'' said Saeed.
The Diamond Innovation Centre is one of the central components of phase two of The Sustainable City, which has been designed around three pillars; economic, environmental and social.
