Khidmah to sow 1,500 plants for Earth Hour
FM firm to host a series of activities to encourage conservation
Abu Dhabi-based company Khidmah will support Earth Hour by pledging to sow 1,500 plants or trees if 60% or more of its residents participate by turning off their lights on March 23rd, between 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
Supporting the initiative for the fourth consecutive year, Khidmah has challenged its residents to turn off their lights during Earth Hour and reduce their ecological footprint.
The firm will be carrying out Earth Hour activities in more than 50 managed locations including mosques in the Western region, government buildings, villa communities, residential & commercial towers in Abu Dhabi, and residential towers in Dubai.
Staff will be mobilised throughout all these developments to turn off non-essential lights during Earth Hour. Khidmah will also be running contests and live updates on its social media for these activities.
In addition, arts & crafts activities using recycling material will be organised for children in Khidmah's communities.
The firm is also offering free yoga and pilates classes under candle lights to its residents during Earth Hour and will carry out several health and energy saving activities to educate the residents of the community and to go beyond the hour.
Abdulla Al Qamzi, managing director of Khidmah, said: "We firmly believe that Khidmah has a great responsibility towards the sustainability of the environment and we operate our business in ways that don’t jeopardise the environment or deplete world’s limited natural resources.
"We will continue to follow this and educate and support our residents and clients to bring sustainability to the environment now and for future generations."
