Issued by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply this global accreditation is awarded to businesses and organisations for achieving the highest international standards in their procurement and supply chain policies and procedures. The certification is awarded after a series of rigorous comprehensive and systemic reviews carried out by an independent auditor. 

The benefits of accreditation are increased reputation, continuous improvement, sustainability, establishing robust ethical practices and the assurance of value-add in procurement transactions.

“I’m delighted that we have won an award for our supply-chain policies and procedures,” said Zuha Moussa, Head of Contracts and Procurement at Masdar. “We are proud that our procurement processes meet international best standards, and we will continue to excel in these methods.”

Rebecca Fox, Regional Manager of CIPS Middle East said, “Masdar is such a leading, ambitious and progressive organisation in the GCC that it comes as no surprise to me that Masdar achieved this award in record time of just over 2 months. CIPS is proud to be associated with Masdar and we look forward to continued collaboration ’’

Masdar joins a distinguished group of organisations in the UAE to achieve CIPS Silver Certification, namely; ENEC, Fertil, Zadco, du, DP World, DMI and mbc.
