Dubai Properties Group (DPG), a member of Dubai Holding, has recently been recognised by DEWA for their support during this year’s Earth Hour, the largest global environmental initiative aimed at raising awareness on climate change. Pictured receiving a certificate of appreciation is DPG Group CEO Mr. Khalid Al Malik from Mr. Saeed Al Tayer Managing Director and CEO of DEWA.
DPG demonstrated its support of the environmental initiative this year by encouraging stakeholders, tenants and employees to switch off all unused lights and electrical equipment for ‘Earth Hour’ on Saturday March 31st, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
DPG has supported the ‘Earth Hour’ initiative since its introduction in the UAE, promoting it through various campaigns over the years. Their involvement is part of the company’s ‘Responsible Living’ platform, reflecting DPG’s commitment to supporting various events and joint initiatives with authorities and non-profit organizations.
This successful initiative was held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council and in partnership with the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and Emirates Wildlife Society and World Wide Fund for Nature. Earth Hour was first held in Dubai in 2008 and has since saved hundreds of thousands of carbon emissions.
