Dubai Investments Focuses on Increasing Food Safety Awareness on World Environment Day 2013
 

Promotes Green Standards with Distribution of 3,000 Plant Saplings across Schools and Residential Communities at DIP

Dubai–UAE: 06 June, 2013 – Keeping with its commitment to sustainable corporate responsibility, Dubai Investments PJSC, (“DI”), the largest investment company listed on the Dubai Financial Market, celebrated the World Environment Day with a range of activities for the employees and the community.
Marked by the United Nations Environment Programme on 5 June every year, the World Environment Day is the biggest and most widely celebrated global day that climaxes year-long events for positive environmental action.
Focusing on this year's theme for the World Environment Day - Think-Eat-Save - employees at the Dubai Investments headquarters were invited to participate in a host of activities aimed at encouraging food-saving habits and increasing awareness of food shortages across the world.
Environment welfare group, Blue Planet Green People were invited to speak to DI employees on the various methods to build an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle, and give back to the planet and society. These include concepts such as ‘do-it-yourself' vertical gardening, organic farming and recycling of food products. The food-safety experts spoke on ways to reduce wastage within the household through healthy food habits that involve sensible eating.
In the run up to the World Environment Day, employees were additionally given a chance to display their food-management skills through a 10-day-long competition looking to identify ‘Food Saviours' across the company. The winners, selected based on their entries in three separate categories – creative-writing on the theme ‘Think.Eat.Save', testimonials on food-safety experiences, and workable ideas for reducing food wastage in the world – were honoured with gifts and certificates on the day of the event.

As a token gesture, Dubai Investments and Dubai Investments Park also distributed 3,000 plant saplings to the schools and residential communities at Dubai Investments Park, in order to promote environmental awareness among residents and visitors to the mixed-use development.

Abdulaziz Bin Yagub Al Serkal, General Manager of Dubai Investments, said: “At a time when many countries around the world are looking to optimize their food use and supply, it becomes a shared responsibility to bring about a change in attitude at the grassroots. At Dubai Investments, we believe this change is achievable through a concentrated effort to increase awareness among our biggest stakeholders - our people.

“I congratulate all the employees at Dubai Investments for their enthusiastic participation in the World Environment Day. I am also grateful to residents at DIP, who share our vision to transform the entire development in to a greener, healthier place to live and grow. I look forward to their continued involvement as torch-bearers in the nation's goals towards sustainability.”

Dubai Investments has consistently aimed to implement policies that seek to improve the environment across its operations, including its offices, manufacturing units, and other properties. The Dubai Investments headquarters adheres to stringent green standards, including optimized recycling, reduced utility of power and water, and the maintenance of a well-balanced ecological environment complemented by sufficient green spaces.
