TAQA, the global energy company based in Abu Dhabi, has today released its first annual sustainable development report. The report outlines TAQA's approach and performance in 2012, as well as goals for workplace health and safety, staff development, environmental protection, community relations and industry partnerships.
The report, entitled: "Our contribution to sustainable development - Report 2012", reinforces TAQA's commitment to creating value for the long-term future while acting responsibly, protecting its employees, being active in the community, minimising impact on the environment and remaining the partner of choice in its chosen markets through trusting relationships with business and governmental partners.
Abdulla Saif Al-Nuaimi, TAQA's Vice-Chairman, said, "It gives me great pleasure to see TAQA integrate these key sustainability drivers into the organisation's strategy and at the same time supporting sustainable development reporting in Abu Dhabi. This report is crucial to achieving TAQA's long-term goals through its support of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. TAQA is Abu Dhabi's premier international energy and water operator, a position which it has attained by being an excellent neighbour and always striving for excellence." Carl Sheldon, TAQA's Chief Executive Officer, said, "At TAQA, safety and sustainability are two of our core values and are at the forefront of how we do business. Energy is the lifeblood of any developing economy and by delivering it safely and securely to millions of people worldwide, TAQA improves quality of life. We welcome our stakeholders' feedback in assisting TAQA in becoming a regional forerunner in sustainable development reporting."
