Give a brief account of your professional journey.
My professional journey began around nine years ago when I cofounded a company with a primary focus on energy, environment, and sustainability. Currently, I hold the positions of CTO, Director, and CEO at Global Energy and Environmental Engineering Services in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi. Before starting this venture, I gained experience working on various projects in Qatar, Malaysia, and India. During my time in India, I worked on clean energy projects across the country, including wind power, solar energy, hydroelectricity, waste-to-energy conversion, and more. This initial experience lasted about four and a half years before I decided to start my own entrepreneurial journey. Through my travels in India, I realized the importance of addressing environmental concerns and resource utilization in a professional context rather than relying solely on voluntary activities.
I believe hat environmental sustainability should be treated as a vital aspect of businesses. This perspective has guided me throughout my nine-year journey, which has taken me through India, Qatar, Malaysia, and now the UAE. In total, I have gained around 14 to 15 years of experience in the fields of environment, energy, sustainability, and waste management.

As A Leader, I Have Unwavering Faith In The Intellectual And Literary Capacities Of Individuals

Define Global Energy and Environmental Engineering Services as an organization and its position as a multinational consultancy and solutions provider in the sustainability, environment, and engineering industry.
We offer a wide range of sustainability solutions that encompass policy development, procedural implementation, reporting strategies, and identification of sustainable projects. Our services cover the entire spectrum, from consultation and advice to providing practical solutions. We work with government entities and private organizations, delivering independent and unbiased services. Our expertise includes policy procedures, advisory work for governments, and implementation of sustainability, environmental, and waste management requirements for industries. We also oversee sustainability initiatives and assist developers in meeting their desired ratings and targets. Our services cater to the diverse needs of all stakeholders, aiming to achieve comprehensive sustainability goals.

How do you foster a learning culture in your team? How do you guide them to draw valuable insights from the market to ensure the company stays informed about the trends/market fluctuations?
At our company, we prioritize building a strong culture by recruiting candidates who share our commitment to sustain ability. We provide training and assess the abilities and interests of new graduates during their first six months. We also welcome experienced professionals to help us expand and generate leads. Our training approach involves practical project execution to ensure our team members effectively represent our services. We believe that sensible practices, which address societal needs and protect the environment, are essential for
creating long-term value. We firmly believe that placing greater importance on fostering a healthier environment takes precedence over short term profit reduction for long-term prosperity. By embracing these principles, businesses can actively contribute to a sustainable future and create a positive influence.

Where do you see yourself headed in the upcoming years? What is your future roadmap?
As a leader, I have unwavering faith in the intellectual and literary capacities of individuals. However, effective leadership requires the support of capable individuals who translate words into action, ensuring lasting impact within the organization. Therefore, my focus is on developing a strong executive team to ensure sustained leadership over time. At GE3S, our aspiration is to establish ourselves as a leading authority in global sustainability, diligently evaluating and verifying sustain ability standards. Our technological prowess reinforces our position in this regard. Moreover, we are actively developing exclusive tools and ratings that will benefit the entire industry. Additionally, we have exciting projects underway, particularly in the electric vehicle and energy sectors, that will augment our market influence. While specific details will be shared later, our vision for GTS encompasses becoming a global thought leader and potentially listing our company on prestigious stock exchanges such as Abu Dhabi, India, New York, or London.

What would be your advice to budding leaders in this domain?
Leaders and professionals in the sustainability field must have a genuine passion for making a positive impact. They should choose this path with a long-term plan and focus on a specific area within sustainability. It is essential to implement ideas and demonstrate measurable results to substantiate their efforts. Education, capacity building, and execution are key to success in this field. By showcasing real examples of their work, leaders can inspire others and contribute to a sustainable future.
