For Our Emirates We Plant Campaign 2019
For the third year in a row, CEMEX participates in the “For Our Emirates We Plant” campaign organized by Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) that took place in Minae’, South Ras Al Khaimah (Skheibar Area).
The day began with a ceremony that was inaugurated by HE Eng. Sheikh Salem bin Sultan bin Saqr Al-Qasimi, President of Ras Al Khaimah Civil Aviation and Board member of the Executive Council of the Government of Ras Al Khaimah. He welcomed everyone and focused on encouraging all sectors of the society to take steps to combat Desertification, Climate Change and Global Warming.
Habiba Al Mar’ashi, Chairperson of the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG), said that, “This year’s event will not only celebrate and uphold the vision, mission and tradition of EEG to conserve and protect our country and planet The theme of the campaign this year is “Are you the solution to this Pollution” which focuses on the role of everyone regardless of their status, nationality, gender etc. This bodes well with the theme set this year by the leadership of the Country “The Year of Tolerance” In creating this fabric of togetherness, Tolerance is the thread that will weave safety, stability and happiness into the lives of people across the world. With Tolerance, we can hope to build the world as one family that shares with each other the benefices of the planet, where future generations continue to understand, empathize with and support each other’s needs and aspirations.”
CEMEX UAE planted 3 trees this year and will actively continue in protecting the environment through the means of education, action programmes and community involvement. We were also able to see the plants grown from last year and witness the growth reached in a year.
A special thanks to CEMEX UAE volunteers who took the time to contribute to this great initiative towards promoting sustainability to ensure a better future for our community.
