The 12 June exhibition will feature live art by local emerging artists, organic food tasting and introductions to environmentally conscious initiatives. The exhibition will be followed by a silent auction of exclusive pieces of art work created by Chalhoub Group employees, as well as T-shirts designed by ESMOD students for the occasion. All proceeds will be donated to Environment-focused charities acting across the Middle East (Kuwait: Kuwait Environment Protection Society, Qatar: Friends of the Environment Centre, Bahrain: Youth & Environment Society, Egypt: Arab Office For Youth & Environment, UAE: Emirates Environment Group).

"We are delighted to celebrate 'World Environment Day' with our teams and partners once again this year. The Group has consistently demonstrated its commitment towards supporting its community. Under the name of Chalhoub IMPACT, we have devised a thorough and comprehensive corporate program, by which responsibility is a reality, involving the commitment of each and every one of the members of the Group," comments Anthony Chalhoub, Joint CEO of the Chalhoub Group. "To give back to this community is not only our social duty, but also the most inspiring way to unite our teams on causes and values in which we all believe, as they bring about the improvement of our quality of life" said Patrick Chalhoub, Joint CEO of the Chalhoub Group.

Millie Tsai, General Manager of Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre said: "As one of DUCTAC's founder patrons, the Chalhoub Group have provided invaluable support for the arts and share DUCTAC's commitment to provide artistic opportunities for the community. We are immensely proud to be working with them on this project to raise awareness for World Environment Day."

'Chalhoub IMPACT' aims to make a positive difference on Arts & Culture, Education and the Environment by developing and supporting projects, strategic partnerships as well as the promotion of community participation within its teams.
