Mr. Arron Browne, Sales and Marketing Manager – Sabban Property Investments said:
‘Sabban Property Investments are proud to support this significant event and the continuing efforts of the EEG to promote environmental awareness. Trees play a vital role in sustaining and balancing the eco-system and absorbing the excess, harmful green house gases. This event has helped educate public at the grassroots level about the importance of looking after out planet and we hope, in planting these tress, we have also planted seeds of knowledge that will grow in the students’ minds’.
EEG is accredited to United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) governing Council.
Tree planting is a part of EEG’s commitment to the UNEP’s Billion Tree programme, wherein EEG had pledged 1.5 million indigenous trees to be planted in UAE in the year 2007. EEG surpassed its target and succeeded in planting more than 1,612,904 million indigenous trees.
The One Million Tree Campaign is continuing in the year 2008, as an ongoing commitment to UNEP and the New Year has already brought together corporate organisations and schools to plant trees for the latter that are committed to the cause of environmental protection and preservation.
Sabban Properties, one of EEG’s unremittingly committed supporters have always joined in our efforts in helping UAE preserve its environment.
