Annual Corporate Gala Dinner

The EEG Annual Corporate is more than just a tradition of acknowledging support and sponsorship. It is rooted in the very ethos of EEG reflected in the slogan, “Together for a better environment” and celebrates the power of partnerships. Each year the event brings together the cream of the public and private sector that have demonstrated an inherent commitment towards the environment and sustainable development. From policy makers to frontrunners of the corporate world, from thought leaders to subject matter experts, the Annual Corporate Gala Dinner showcases the unity in diversity that is forged through the common belief in a greener future. EEG uses this opportunity to acknowledge and honour all the organisations and individuals whose support fuels the operations and activities of EEG.

The year 2020 marked 23 years of the Annual Corporate Gala Dinner and the 30th Anniversary of EEG. And hence, EEG saw it fitting to conduct the Gala Dinner 2020 under the theme “Beyond 30 Years: Going to the next 30”. EEG has always welcomed members from different age groups, gender, education, status, culture and race. Without any bias, all individuals of the nation are welcomed to participate in EEG’s various campaigns and programmes, and take with them valuable knowledge and skills in the field of environmental literacy. EEG proudly presented the Annual Corporate Gala Dinner on 4th  of March 2020 at the Sheraton, Jumeirah Beach Resort, under the patronage of H.E. Eng. Sheikh Salem bin Sultan bin Saqr Al Qassimi – Member of the Executive Council of the Government of RAK and Chairman of the Department of Civil Aviation and an Honorary Member of EEG.

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.”
