Receiving the shield on behalf of the science institution, Executive Director of ICT for Development Sector at the RSS Ahmed Masadeh said that the recognition as a Green Business is a first for the Middle East and Gulf region, adding that it highlights the achievements of key organizations in enhancing their ICT infrastructures to reach world-leading standards.

The Green Business Certificate of Quality, he noted, was awarded based on a comprehensive ICT audit that was carried out over the course of almost a year, during which Metanoia Training and Consulting, the federation representative in Jordan, worked closely with RSS staff.

"With the full and ongoing support and collaboration of RSS management, the process of certification was achieved in record time, despite the difficult and challenging times we face due to the coronavirus pandemic", said Masadeh.

The process included several phases, starting with internal documentation control, followed by an internal audit of the infrastructure of the RSS Data Centre and each department of the RSS ICT for Development Sector and, finally, the comprehensive training of relevant RSS staff, he explained.
