Our Commitment

Our Commitment

At Aldar we are committed to the welfare of all workers involved in the construction, operation and maintenance of our projects and assets. Our worker welfare policy outlines our commitment to the health, safety and dignity of our directly employed workers as well as those employed by our contractual partners. 

Our policy and principles are founded on UAE laws and incorporate international best practice.

Our Policy

Our Policy & Principles

Our people are our foundation. We embed the workers’ welfare policy and principles into every aspect of our culture. We require that the partners we work with agree to apply the same set of principles in their own supply chains. We monitor both our own compliance and that of our partners and take prompt remedial action.

For further information about our monitoring criteria please consult the workers welfare principles below or contact us on our dedicated email Workers Welfare_Our Policy
