Annual Corporate Gala Dinner

EEG’s Annual Gala Dinner is an occasion to host its members, partners and sponsors as a way of acknowledging the commitment and support of every entity that is a part of EEG’s efforts to promote environmental awareness and ensure a greener and sustainable future for UAE.  In 2020, EEG set the theme of the Gala Dinner as ‘Beyond 30 Years: Going to the Next 30’ in line with the declaration of His Highnesses Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces, to mark 2020 as the Year of preparations for the Next 50 Years. One other special reason for having chosen this theme was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of EEG, and highlight all of the milestones that it had achieved in its remarkable journey.

The 23rd Annual Corporate Gala Dinner was held under the patronage of HE Eng. Sheikh Salem bin Sultan bin Saqr Al Qassimi, Chairman of the Ras Al Khaimah Civil Aviation Department, Member of the Executive Council of Ras Al Khaimah Government and Honorary member of EEG, and in the presence of the Guest of Honour, HE Eng. Mariam bint Mohammed Saeed Hareb Al Mehairi, Minister of State for Food Security, at Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort on March 4.

Corporate Outreach

EEG realizes that the support of government organisations and private companies is important for pro-environmental campaigns. EEG engages itself with public and private organisations through meetings, presentation, dialogue session, and action programmes throughout the year. In 2019, EEG conducted a workshop titled “What’s on your plate?” with Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) and a workshop regarding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with Tristar. EEG also presented sustainability initiatives for recycling at the Dubai Natural History Group; visited Nestle to observe their sustainability strategies; conducted educational activities with the Hatta Honey Bee Centre; helped employees at the Dubai Financial Services Authority learn about methods to beat plastic pollution; educated academic institutions about recycling initiatives at the DGrade School Ambassador Session; presented Ferrero about recycling initiatives and maintaining a green office; and educated families with Chalhoub Group about sustainability topics under the theme “Elements define us.”
