Sustainability to be woven into new buildings – Gulfnews

Rayeesa Absal of Gulf News reports “Upcoming buildings in the capital will need to have a minimum level of sustainability woven into their design plan in order to enable developers to secure the approval of the authorities for any project, officials told Gulf News.

Moving a step ahead of the Estidama (sustainability in Arabic) initiative launched in 2008 by the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC), the council has unveiled a new development benchmark called Estidama Integrative Design Process (EIDP).”
