Hundreds of Imdaad employees in Clean Up UAE drive
Activity part of annual UAE organised by Emirates Environmental Group
Over 300 employees and senior managers took part in an Imdaad clean up at Jebel Ali Free Zone recently.
The activity was part of a campaign organised by Emirates Environmental Group that allows the government, business community and individuals to demonstrate their care and concern for the environment.
The site of the clean-up was arranged by Dr Hamad Al Hashemi, managing director, Dubai Institute of Technology, the R&D arm of Economic Zones World (EZW).
All waste collected during the activity was transported to recycling facilities and dump yards using Imdaad's waste disposal trucks.
"Imdaad's business model and its vision for the future are built around our passionate commitment to help protect and conserve the environment. It is therefore important for us to cultivate a genuine concern for the environment among all members of our business organisation through meaningful activities such as the Clean Up UAE campaign,” said Jamal Lootah, CEO, Imdaad.
“This is an activity that is driven not by commercial motives, but by our sense of responsibility and accountability. In this regard, we are extremely pleased with the enthusiastic response of our employees and management executives to the campaign and we hope to further cultivate such positive sentiment through similar activities in the future."
Al Hashemi added the Imdaad clean up complements the corporate social responsibility of EZW.
“We believe our environment is our home and our country, and we are proud of the people who have responded with their time and effort to be part of the Clean Up UAE Campaign 2010 and have conveyed their keenness to protect the environment,” he said.
“EZW has always been keen on collaborating with its partners and environment-focused companies such as Imdaad for the greater development of the nation, its people and the environment.”
