Middlesex University Dubai lecturer Dr. Sreejith Balasubramanian was awarded his doctorate during the 2017 Graduation ceremony by the Vice Chancellor Professor Tim Blackman.
Dr. Balasubramanian’s Green Supply Chain Management: An investigation on the construction sector, investigated how construction projects could implement green initiatives during the supply chain stages; from design to end of life.
“The construction sector is the single largest contributor of global carbon emissions, resource, water and energy consumption and this is only expected to grow as urbanisation increases,” said Dr. Balasubramanian. “Focusing specifically on the UAE supply chain management sector, I wanted to investigate the initiatives put in place by the private and public sectors to minimise environmental impacts in the region. Completing this study was important for me as this is an ongoing issue in the region’s dynamic and fast paced construction sector.”
