The ministerial delegation toured the agricultural farms, biodomes that produce around 1 million saplings every year, Sanad Village, the largest rehabilitation and education centre for people of determination, and SEE Institute, the positive-energy building which will produce 150% of its energy requirements.


The delegates lauded TSC’s efforts to comply with the highest environmental sustainability standards through an integrated and socially inclusive approach while leading sustainable development in the region. They also discussed ways to foster sustainability, raise environmental awareness and accelerate the fight against climate change.


His Excellency Dr Al Nuaimi said: “TSC is a prototype of a sustainable community that promotes environment-friendly production and consumption practices in line with the UAE’s drive to achieve sustainability across the board and combat climate change to build a better future for the current and next generations.”

The visit was a major step in strengthening the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment and TSC.


The delegation, including top ministry officials, was welcomed by Eng. Faris Saeed, Chairman of Diamond Developers, and his team.

TSC, which considers the three pillars of sustainability – social, environmental and economic – is globally known for its future-proof sustainable solutions. After receiving worldwide recognition for its successful, self-sufficient model, Diamond Developers has launched a second TSC project in the neighbouring emirate of Sharjah. The UAE-based company also has plans to announce more sustainable cities in the region and beyond.
