Our Commitment


Aldar is committed to embedding sustainability in everything we do. Our sustainable procurement strategy encourages suppliers to adopt responsible practices with the aim of reducing our collective environmental impact.

We screen suppliers’ social and environmental responsibility performance and work collaboratively to upskill the supply chain, implement feedback and deliver better projects.

Our Sustainable Procurement Principles

Our five sustainable procurement principles include environmental product criteria, social performance criteria and economic goals.

We assess and measure our product and company environmental performance against targets, incorporating the social aspects of sustainability into programmes like workers’ welfare and in-country value.

Fairness, integrity and transparency in our practices ensure equal treatment of our suppliers and clear evaluation criteria in our processes. We have implemented a number of programmes across our developments to ensure greater transparency in our procurement process.
