- PRESS RELEASE
Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company Ltd. (ADGAS) announced its participation in the 2013 Earth Hour event that will be held from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm on Saturday, 23rd March 2013. Earth Hour movement provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations, businesses and homes around the globe to unite in taking a stand against climate change.
"We have a stake in the future of our planet and ADGAS believes that we have a natural responsibility to operate in a responsible manner and in ways that will minimize the impact on the environment," Mr. Kazim added.
In order to generate greater awareness amongst employees and encourage participation of families and youngsters, ADGAS has launched a series of innovative information campaigns and people engagement programmes in the form of photography competition, candle light dinner at the Company's recreation center, Earth Hour logo printed T-shirts for employees and banner displays at all office sites.
"We are one of the UAE's earliest and pioneer organizations to embrace the initiative for the protection of environment. We have always been working on reducing our environmental footprint both on Das Island and in Abu Dhabi. This campaign is yet another demonstration of our responsibilities towards Sustainability," observed Mr. Kazim.
ADGAS has established a close coordination link with the Emirates Wildlife Society who in cooperation with the World Wide Fund for Nature (EWS-WWF) is spearheading the Earth Hour movement in UAE.
"This is truly an inspiring global initiative towards a sustainable world and ADGAS is pro-actively embracing the Earth Hour for the third consecutive year. We are setting up a stand in the Headquarters lobby to enable employees to sign up their pledge to observe Earth Hour and commit to meet the challenge of going beyond," said Mr. Fouad Al Wahedi, Chairman of ADGAS Sustainability Committee.
In order to provide a further fillip to this laudable initiative, ADGAS has extended its outreach to its customers, suppliers and other stakeholders by inviting them to join the Earth Hour movement towards protecting the planet.
