EEG, being one of the strongest environmental NGOs in the region with decades of achievements and best practice propagation, we continue our efforts to make entities in the country and beyond follow a sustainable path.

Our collective efforts in addition help achieve international sustainability goals as well. One of the key goal across the world is to prevent desertification and save the depletion of fertile soil, which is vital to ensure food security across the world.

Every year the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought is observed on 17th June. This year the theme is “United for land. Our Legacy. Our Future”. To commemorate this vital day, EEG will be rolling out its popular annual paper recycling campaign ‘Recycle. Reforest. Repeat’ (RRR) for the 9th consecutive year. RRR aims to involve entities from all sectors to participate in recycling paper and in turn get an opportunity to participate in our urban afforestation drive.
