Pacific Controls commits for a ‘Greener’ Dubai
Dubai, May 17, 2005: Pacific Controls Systems LLC has
launched an advertising campaign in the city today with the
theme, Our Commitment to Dubai: Intelligent Green Buildings.
This campaign is the first in a series of its kind to be
launched by Pacific Controls across the United Arab Emirates
(UAE), which is targeted at creating awareness on
environmental protection and the need to go for solar energy
to meet the growing demands.
This campaign marks Pacific Controls’ participation in line
with the Dubai Government’s drive in making the Emirate a
more clean and green city in the UAE. "Our campaign is aimed
at creating awareness on environment conservation, and the
need to join hands through a private-public partnership for
a green Dubai", said Dilip Rahulan, Chairman & CEO of
Pacific Controls Systems LLC.
As part of its "Green" initiatives, Pacific Controls is
building the Middle East’s first LEED Platinum rated "Green
Building" with solar lighting and solar thermal for its
fresh air cooling requirement at the Techno Park, Dubai.
Spanning an area of over 120,000 sq. ft., the multi-storey
Green Building is to become Pacific Controls’ Headquarters,
which is expected to use solar to meet a sizable amount of
its energy requirements for air-conditioning and lighting
"The rising level of harmful emissions from buildings,
automobiles etc. is highly polluting the environment and
contributing to global warming. Aligning our business
strategies with the Dubai Government’s vision for
environmental protection, we have taken up the commitment to
the Emirate of Dubai for a "Green Building" with LEED
Platinum rating, the first-of-its-kind in the Middle East,"
stated Rahulan. "With the construction and real estate
industry booming in the city, it is imperative that we take
considerable efforts in conserving our nature. We encourage
the people of Dubai, both corporates and the public, to
participate in the initiatives taken by the Government
towards a more clean and green Dubai, thus making Dubai a
haven on the earth to live."
Pacific Controls’ commitment to improve the environment in
the UAE has led the company to be active in a number of
environmental groups, associations and Government sponsored
"We have to drive the point that Dubai is the hub, not only
for tourism, entertainment and real estate, but also for a
comfortable and healthy living. And, by choosing Dubai as
the first destination for our global initiative in designing
a "Green Building", it has given the most opportune moment
for us in creating an environmental awareness to make Dubai
a more ‘Greener’ city," added Rahulan.
