National Bank of Fujairah announced today that it has concluded the inaugural event in the year-long initiative entitled “Plant with Us” to mark the Year of Zayed and raise awareness about environmental conservation and sustainability. This event was held in partnership with ENABLE, a Desert Group company that cultivates horticulture projects and initiatives across the country, and its long-term partner Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF - the global conservation body (EWS-WWF). A large number of community members from Al Reef community in Abu Dhabi attended the afternoon event held over the weekend.

The inaugural event gathered community members around the “Enable Mobile Store”, sponsored by NBF, to learn more about planting succulents from Enable’s determined staff members. Additionally, EWS-WWF presented a fun and educational workshop about safeguarding the environment, thus introducing the importance of individual contribution to this cause from an early age. This fun-filled day saw kids enjoying diverse activities including face painting, potting succulents as well as others.

Commenting on the event, Vince Cook NBF CEO said: “Over a number of years now, we have created successful partnerships with organisations committed to preserving our habitat and raising awareness around key environmental issues. We are very proud to launch our theme for this year entitled “Plant with Us” from our branch premises in Al Reef, as we look to further enhance our contribution to the community. The initiative sends a strong message that our partnership with clients goes beyond meeting their financial requirements, and that we play a pivotal role in raising awareness about issues of mutual interest such as fueling economic prosperity and building a greener environment.”

NBF is a leading supporter of environmentally friendly projects. In 2017, NBF became the sponsor of the “ENABLE Mobile Store”, a truck staffed by Emirati people of determination which tours the UAE to sell plants in support of social inclusion and environmental awareness.
