Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, said: “Imdaad has always given special emphasis to the sustainability aspect of the environment. We consider it our responsibility to hand over a greener, safer and better environment for our coming generations. We are partaking in the World Environment Day celebrations in the UAE, as such events are highly effective in disseminating useful information and raising awareness among people about the importance of conserving the environment and practicing eco-friendly methods. In addition, Imdaad has actively launched campaigns such as ‘Be’ati’ and the most recent ‘Go Green’ initiative, which will go a long way in conserving the environment and reducing carbon footprints.”
The World Environment Day is the United Nation’s principle channel, initiated to encourage global awareness about the environment and is celebrated every year on June 5th. Over the years, it has grown into a broad platform to reach out to the public and is celebrated in over 100 countries.
