ASGC believes that knowledge sharing is the key to continued success. We have a long-standing collaboration with prominent international universities in Dubai to help us achieve this goal. For example, in 2018, ASGC teamed with American University in Dubai (AUD) to share sustainability expertise and the latest advancements in energy-efficient technologies, in line with the company's sustainability strategy.
ASGC collaborated with AUD to build a net-zero house for the annual Solar Decathlon Middle East (SDME) competition, an annual premier student competition in sustainable engineering globally hosted by DEWA. In addition, we provided intensive knowledge about leading technologies in energy-efficient buildings, water conservation systems, sustainable buildings and smart home solutions.
Our sustainability strategy, which focuses on environmental and social sustainability, has been integrated into all aspects of our business operations.
