An Oasis of the Future
At Seventh, we understand the importance of sustainability and the role it plays in the world today. We believe in combining architectural innovation with ecological responsibility, which is clearly evident in our semi-floating island real estate project in Dubai. Composed of seven pyramid-shaped units, the project blends aesthetically pleasing design with sustainable elements, setting a benchmark for real estate development in the region. In line with our commitment to environmental stewardship, the project employs eco-friendly materials like bamboo and glass. It deploys advanced technologies such as solar and thermal to ensure self-sufficiency.
Shareholder Value Perspective
Our sustainable approach does more than protect the environment – it creates value for our shareholders. As an increasing number of consumers and businesses prioritise sustainability, our commitment to green practices positions us favourably in the market. It reduces regulatory risks, opens up new investment opportunities, and increases our appeal to environmentally-conscious investors.
We see sustainability not as a burden but as an opportunity to deliver better returns to our shareholders while also benefiting our planet. This strategy has proven effective as our green initiatives have positively impacted our bottom line, translating to stronger financial performance and heightened shareholder value.
Responsibility For The Environment
At Seventh, we're dedicated to the stewardship of the environment and contributing meaningfully to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. We strive to create a sustainable, circular economy where waste becomes a resource, thereby minimizing environmental impact. Through initiatives such as decarbonisation, we are leading the charge against climate change. This includes significant investments in green activities like tree planting and sustainable farming, which not only absorb carbon dioxide but also promote biodiversity and healthier ecosystems. By implementing these eco-conscious strategies, Seventh not only contributes to the health and well-being of its residents but also plays a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable and resilient future for our planet.
Leading the Way in Sustainable Development
Targeting Social Issues
We start by pinpointing the social issues that matter most to our stakeholders and our business. In this case, we have identified climate change and resource depletion as key areas to address, in addition to worsening quality of life.
Regular monitoring and reporting help us track our progress against established sustainability goals. Through regular audits and assessments, we ensure that our projects align with our sustainability commitment.
Make Business Case
We then develop a strong business case for addressing these issues, detailing the benefits and return on investment. For our semi-floating island project, the business case was made for sustainable design and operation, reducing costs through energy efficiency, creating a unique selling proposition by elevating the quality of life, and starting by understanding its root cause.
Measure Results & Recalibrate Scope
Lastly, we measure our impact and use these insights to inform our future strategy. In the case of our semi-floating island project, we have seen both environmental and economic benefits from our sustainability approach, guiding us in planning future developments. Seventh plans on achieving this by facilitating astute minds in the field.
A key aspect of our sustainability strategy is the implementation of vertical farming and water cleansing within our projects. These initiatives not only contribute to the self-sufficiency of our developments but also provide additional amenities for residents.
Vertical farming within our pyramid units not only reduces the need for externally sourced produce but also aids in air purification and provides a unique living experience. Water cleansing systems, on the other hand, treat and recycle wastewater, providing a source of grey water for non-drinking purposes and reducing overall water consumption, making it a perfect candidate for bottled water.
Walk The Talk
Seventh is poised to become a leading model for sustainable societies worldwide, embodying the principle of 'practice what you preach.' We're not just talking about a sustainable future - we're actively shaping it. Every aspect of our operation, from water purification to energy conservation and creating a circular economy, is meticulously designed to reflect our commitment to sustainability. We firmly believe in 'walking the talk,' turning our vision into tangible actions. This isn't just about setting an example - it's about inspiring change and demonstrating that a sustainable, healthier way of living is not just possible but also beneficial and rewarding. Through our work, Seventh is lighting the way to a greener, healthier future for all.
At Seventh, we're turning the tide for marine life with our pioneering initiative to create artificial coral reefs. These man-made habitats will spur photosynthesis, acting as a catalyst for an explosion of marine biodiversity. By providing a thriving environment for a multitude of sea creatures, we are helping to replenish the delicate ecosystems that naturally occur in coral reefs. It's more than just restoration; it's about creating a vibrant underwater world teeming with life. Our coral restoration project is yet another step towards our commitment to sustainability, enhancing biodiversity, and nurturing the planet.
Oasis of Unity
Our Oasis of Unity, where a flourishing habitat serves as a powerful symbol of international cooperation and unity. Here, we demonstrate that when we pool our diverse strengths, skills, and perspectives, we can create an environment that thrives and sustains. Drawing from a bottom-up approach, we encourage each individual, community, and nation to contribute to this collective effort. Our Oasis is a testament to what can be achieved when we stand united - a thriving, sustainable environment that generates energy and harmony. It's more than just a space; it's a vision of a world where unity and collaboration lead to the preservation and nurturing of our planet.
Bringing Education Further
At Seventh, we believe that the most potent legacy we can leave is one of inspiration and enlightenment. Our commitment goes beyond conventional teaching; it's about igniting the flame of knowledge in every heart and mind. In reimagining the traditional frameworks of education, we've embraced a more holistic and bottom-up approach, one that acknowledges the wisdom and potential in every corner of our global community.
Our mission is not just about disseminating information, but about fostering an environment where every individual, regardless of their background, can learn, grow, and most importantly, inspire others. By providing the tools and resources for a comprehensive understanding, we are paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable future. A future where knowledge isn't a privilege but a shared treasure.
Because when the doors of understanding swing wide open, it's not just an individual that transforms, but communities evolve, and the world shifts on its axis. It's our steadfast belief that true progress isn't a unilateral descent from the top but a collaborative dance of aspirations and achievements. With every step we take, we aim to inspire not just this generation but many more to come, creating a ripple effect of change and growth. At Seventh, we're not just educating; we're nurturing the trailblazers and torchbearers of tomorrow.
Creating an Oasis for the Future
At Seventh, sustainability is not just an afterthought; it's woven into our project design and strategy. From leveraging eco-friendly materials to innovatively employing renewable energy technologies, our semi-floating island project in Dubai is a testament to our commitment to sustainability. We believe that this approach enhances shareholder value, offers a resilient strategy, and creates a unique, self-sufficient living experience that champions environmental responsibility. At Seventh, we set the benchmark by living up to our sustainability requirements for sustainable societies.
