The See Holding group includes companies such as The Sustainable City (TSC) – a recognized working model for future cities, Diamond Developers, City Solar, and Tadweer, alongside other revenue-generating companies focused on designing, investing in, and building sustainable infrastructure and cities to advance the UN 2050 net zero emissions targets.
Eng. Faris Saeed, Chairman & CEO of SEE Holding, said: “The consolidation of our portfolio of companies into one sustainability-focused global holding group is an important milestone. At SEE Holding, we don’t want to just reduce our emissions; we want to create opportunities for others to do the same. And while we remain dedicated to contributing to the UAE’s sustainability agenda, our vision extends beyond borders to achieve a global impact in spearheading a net zero emissions future to achieve the 2050 targets today and contribute to the United Nations SDGs. This isn’t just business growth; it’s the growth of a promise – a commitment to forging a world where humanity and nature thrive in harmonious coexistence, paving the way to a safer and more prosperous world for our children and future generations.”
Salah Habib, Deputy CEO of SEE Holding, and CEO of SEE Developers, added: “As a fully integrated, sustainable holding group, SEE Holding is well- positioned with the right capabilities, knowledge, and experience to accelerate climate action. This consolidation allows us to streamline our processes and deliver on our promises more effectively, driving both our business growth and impact across social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
