Rohit Walia, Executive Vice Chairman & CEO, Alpen Capital and Bank Sarasin-Alpen Group "We are delighted to be awarded with the Dubai Chamber CSR Label. We place great importance on CSR and sustainability and I believe that all organisations irrespective of their size should give back to the community that they live and work in.

The Dubai Chamber CSR Label has been designed to provide a diagnostic framework, learning and development tool that will help to refine and improve CSR strategy, policies and practice in the UAE. It provides a clear voluntary standard for CSR implementation in Dubai and elsewhere in the UAE; reviews, evaluates and gives feedback on companies' CSR strategy and actions, and provides the ability for companies to communicate better with stakeholders about their CSR commitment and practice.
