DUBAI, UAE: Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the region’s premier integrated innovations hub for high tech industry, organized today a green campaign at its premises to mark the World Environment Day on 5 June.
Assigned by the United Nations as a worldwide pledge to renew commitments for protecting and developing the environment, the World Environment Day has “Climate Change and Implications” as the central theme for the year 2009. Over 100 countries are anticipated to join this crusade on spreading awareness for combating climate change and preserving the ecosystems.
As part of the day’s agenda, employees of the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority volunteered to clean and plant trees at the property, demonstrating a strong sense of commitment towards the corporate social responsibility (CSR) agenda outlined by the management.
Dr. Juma Al Matrooshi, Senior Chief Officer – Corporate Excellence & Support at DSOA from DSOA said: “Preserving our environment is a global priority nowadays, which needs to be highlighted in order to be understood by all our employees and partners. Our involvement in the world environment will reinforce the message.”
DSOA has been actively involved in global environment related initiatives, including the Earth Day 2009 that saw a network of more than 17,000 partners and organizations in over 174 countries drawing attention to the importance of resource conservation and environmental protection.
