Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, Minister of Finance
In line with its commitment to support important environmental and development projects, and marking the launch of Dubai Metro’s Green Line on September 9, 2011, the Ministry of Finance (MoF) has provided its employees with free metro Nol cards (used for all public transport modes in Dubai). Carried out in partnership with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), MoF aims to encourage its staff to use public transportation, particularly the Dubai Metro, when travelling to and from their Dubai headquarters.
This initiative reflects MoF’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, and its commitment to the UAE community, where the move will help in protecting the environment, easing traffic congestion, saving time, and in reducing CO2 emissions and noise pollution in the city.
Commenting on the initiative which is being carried out by MoF’s Human Resources Department, Fatima Saif Al Sawaya, Director of HR at MoF , said: “ The Ministry of Finance constantly seeks to introduce innovate social initiatives and programmes to support the UAE community, and to play a positive role in our local society. Through our different CSR projects, we aim to encourage our employees to utilize the different modern forms of transport available in the country, and to support important projects developed by the UAE’s different emirates.”
