Environmental Sustainability

Sustainability is deeply rooted within the Company’s Strategy, and the driving force to our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) planning. Sustainability further reinforces our motto “Life... As You Love It”, through which we develop sustainable buildings that improve the urban environment. Our 2016 CSR report highlights our key activities focused on sustainability and translating it into three main fronts: industry programs, community education and social work sustainability.

Partnering with the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR)

We have engaged with experts from the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), Kuwait’s independent and national institute of scientific excellence, in knowledge sharing sessions, including a team from its Energy and Building Research Centre, to share and discuss ALARGAN’s experience in building the LEED certified headquarters located in ARGAN Business Park. The activities come as part of our commitment to sustainability, with an objective of sharing expert knowledge in the construction and management of sustainable buildings to members of KISR. Discussions focus on international standards of sustainability, technical management in green buildings, and ways to implement these standards in Kuwait’s urban development.

Supporting with LEED assessments in future developments

Setting the bar high with our LEED Platinum-certified headquarters and aiming to raise the awareness of green buildings in Kuwait, ALARGAN provides voluntary support to organizations such as the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) in projects aiming for LEED certification. One such example is where the Company extended support in the assessment of the expansion design of The Scientific Center of Kuwait. 

Cleaning up our beach shores

In line with our beliefs and commitment to work for a sustainable future, ALARGAN partners with the Environmental Voluntary Foundation to clean the shores of the Kuwait Free Trade Zone, home to the location of the company’s headquarters, ARGAN Business Park. In the initiative, the ALARGAN team along with other companies and volunteers in the Foundation come together to clean the shores, removing a large amount of waste affecting the environment and the resting home to various migrating birds. This initiative continues on an annual basis with a goal of greater partnerships and collaborations.
