HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, has commended the role played by government and private organisations in raising awareness about the importance of preserving the environment by participating in Earth Hour.
“Thanks to the vision of our wise leadership, Dubai has become a global role model for endorsing environmental causes and supporting global efforts in mitigating global warming," he said.
"Dubai was the first Arab city to observe Earth Hour in 2008, which underlines its leading role in hosting and supporting initiatives that raise public awareness on environmental issues.
"Earth Hour goes beyond turning off unnecessary lights and appliances for 60 minutes. It aims to enhance environmental responsibility and encourages all of us to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.”
Al Tayer urged customers, employees, and all members of society to stay at home during Earth Hour in compliance with the directives of the concerned authorities in the UAE to limit the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19) and turn off unnecessary lights and electric appliances during Earth Hour to raise awareness on reducing carbon emissions and preserving our natural resources.
