26 Sustainable Strategies for Retail, Dubai April 02 2014

THE CHANGE INITIATIVE in Dubai has a vision: to deliver sustainability easily, and with style.

This one-stop superstore — all 4,000 square metres of it — has everything for those seeking a sustainable home and lifestyle, from home appliances to building solutions to fashion and objects of design.

And now an Australian botanical skincare joins the carefully curated offerings for responsible living.

ENFANT PARADIS's organic and natural skin care and aromatherapy uses pure exotic botanical ingredients selected to deliver visibly hydrated results. Responsible, ethical and toxin-free, the 98.5% natural products are free from parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehyde, or phthalates.

The Change Initiative practices what it preaches: the building has been awarded status by LEED as the most sustainable building in the world (US Green Building Council, 2013). Points were awarded for the 26 sustainable strategies throughout the store, including solar panels which provide 40 percent of the building’s energy requirements (see TCI's rooftop, above). Other sustainable strategies include the use of reflective paint, insulation three times higher than that used in normal buildings, water reuse systems and the use of recycled materials.
