Volunteers from Emirates Gas, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), took part in the annual ‘Clean up UAE’ campaign organised by Emirates Environmental Group.
The campaign is aimed at creating awareness amongst the community about local environmental issues with special emphasis on waste management, waste reduction and recycling. It involves various sectors of society including government, corporate, academic and domestic institutions, in an integrated national environmental initiative.
EMGAS also sponsored the participation of students in the Clean-up Campaign from two schools, Al Ghorfa Kindergarten in Fujairah and Sumaya Bint Khayat School in Ajman.
Hesham Ali Mustafa, Senior Director, ENOC Gas Marketing & General Manager – Emirates Gas LLC, said: “This is EMGAS’ third year of participation in the “Clean up UAE” campaign and we are proud of our partnership with Emirates Environmental Group,”
”Taking part in such activities is in line with EMGAS’ objectives of implementing best practices to enhance the quality of life of residents in Dubai and the UAE.” he added.
Last year, more than 20,000 participants joined hands for the ‘Clean up UAE’ campaign across 106 locations in the massive cleanup operation collecting more than 100 tons of waste.
Launched in 2002, ‘Clean Up UAE’ strives to address the most pressing environment challenges of the country, including its high per capita waste generation, water consumption and wastage, and a huge ecological footprint.
For over 37 years, EMGAS has been the leading supplier of LP Gas products and services. EMGAS has undertaken several concerted initiatives to promote a culture of ‘green energy,’ and introduced a range of products that help reduce energy consumption and carbon emission.
Key green products that were launched by EMGAS include “Pro-Power”, a customized gas cylinder, for forklifts, further promoting clean transportation. Another key product is Cutting Edge Gas (CEG), which was introduced following research that industries such as metal cutting and ship building had strong requirements for safe and economical cutting fuel.
