C3 Awards

Proud to be awarded the 1st international Social Enterprise Mark and be recognised as a United Nations SDGs pioneer in the region!

We are now officially the exclusive partner of Social Enterprise Mark in the region!

C3 is proud to be part of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies (ARISE) National Network in the United Arab Emirates.

Our work and commitment towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will allow us to bring an additional perspective to ARISE and the global disaster risk reduction community.

ARISE leverages the private sector's expertise and ensures that business itself is fully aware of potential risks and acts to mitigate and reduce the future risks. Importantly, ARISE facilitates the exchange of experience and knowledge on the implementation of disaster risk reduction through the integration of disaster and climate risk into business management strategies, financial reports, accountability, and risk management frameworks.

The prestigious award is organized by the UAE Local Network of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), which is considered the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative responsible for encouraging and recognizing companies around the world contributing to the achievement of the SDGs.

In the words of Mr. Mahmoud El Burai, UNGC UAE Local Network and MENA Representative: “One whole Sustainable Development Goal, which really wraps together all the SDGs, is SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals. C3 have been named the UAE SDG Pioneer for Partnerships not only because of their projects’ brilliant social impact, but also for the value they put into the partnerships they develop and the social enterprises they support in the UAE. They provide opportunities for other organizations to participate in the collective action needed to achieve the goals.”
