Etisalat Celebrates Earth Hour

Etisalat yesterday participated in the Earth Hour, the initiative which aims to raise awareness of changes in the world’s climate. Etisalat’s iconic buildings and facilities were darkened through the evening and the Etisalat Academy organised a special candle-light yoga evening at its health club. Special care was taken to ensure all non-essential lighting and electronics were turned off for the hour.

Ahmed Bin Ali, Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications at Etisalat said: “We participated at this global initiative to confirm our commitment to the environment due to its large impact on our daily life and the future generations. We are proud to be among the leading companies in this sector, and we enjoy a large profile in protecting the environment.”

Etisalat also invited its entire staff in the UAE to participate in making this event a successful one.

Etisalat is currently expanding a fiber optic network that consumes less energy and emits fewer greenhouse gases. Etisalat also has many environmental initiatives across all its markets in Asia and Africa.
