by such a prominent international panel of judges and commend Olive Branch on
the inclusion of an award for sustainable development, which highlights the
importance of environmental awareness across the Gulf. As the only UAE company
to be selected for an award, we are particularly pleased to represent both Abu
Dhabi and the UAE and wish to thank our investors, management team and the Abu
Dhabi Government for their progressive Green initiatives which have helped
create the marketplace we operate in."

are an important tool in dispelling Arabic stereotypes and instilling a sense of
pride in the achievements of the Arabic culture, our people and the companies
that operate within it. Enviromena is an extremely deserving recipient and

sustainable development across the Gulf."
