  • Ensure regulatory compliance and continuous improvement by identifying appropriate environmental standards, developing and implementing guidelines, implementing pollution mitigation measures, monitoring environmental performance, and reviewing activities where necessary
  • Provide environmental training and awareness to staff to enable them to carry out their jobs responsibly, and ensure accountability for environmental performance at all levels in Nakheel
  • Ensure contractors, suppliers and partners working with us meet or exceed Nakheel environmental expectations
