RTA wins Dubai Chamber CSR Label

DUBAI, Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has praised RTA’s obtaining the Dubai Chamber of Commerce’s Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR, Label. The Authority has become the first government entity to win this accolade for the second consecutive year.

Al Tayer received the CSR Label Certificate from Yousef Al Rida, CEO of RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector.

Speaking on the occasion, Al Tayer said, “RTA is always keen to roll out new CSR initiatives and support all programmes of the Dubai Government across various scientific, educational, social, humanitarian and economic fields. Realising these objectives is part of RTA’s continuous efforts to enhance its profile and social responsibility besides bringing happiness to people.”

He added that achieving the CSR Label for the second year in a row culminates RTA’s efforts at the local level, highlighted by many CSR initiatives, such as ‘Read More’ initiative, which had benefited more than half a million people, and the ‘Meals-on-wheels’ initiative which serves 5,000 meals to public transport users in Ramadan.

“We have also got a set of ongoing initiatives, such as the ‘Audio Kiosk’, in support of People of Determination to facilitate their cultural and cognitive integration. We have run a short-story contest to unearth their innovative skills, and customised an array of our services to make them more accessible to this segment,” he added.

In turn, Al Rida said, “The RTA has mapped out a comprehensive strategy to deliver its duty towards all spectrums of the community, including students, special needs, elderly, etc. As a major government entity, that understands the humanitarian activities and fully aware of its CSR, RTA is keen on taking part and contributing to local community events.”
