It is worth noting that the Dubai Chamber CSR Label is a diagnostic and development tool for companies to implement responsible/ethical business practices, as the brand allows them to discover shortcomings and strengths in their strategy, to manage the effects of their business activity on the environment and society. The Label can also be used to conduct an internal review of the responsible social policies applied in the company, and to evaluate and develop performance in all aspects.
