This has enabled us to identify the level of awareness that has been adopted among employees regarding sustainability. The results achieved exceed the average results attained from other organisations that have completed the survey. This reflects a high level of awareness among employees regarding sustainability, as well as their commitment towards achieving it,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dewa.
