Employees from Applus+ in the UAE participated in the Dubai Investments Green Run, which took place on Saturday, 15th January 2022. The initiative was launched to spread awareness on sustainable practices and encourage participants to adopt a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle.
Our enthusiatic team participated in a 3KM race, wearing dedicated event T-shirts made of recycled material. They carried re-usable water bottles and items for recycling which included household items and electronics.
The Dulsco recycling bus was on site to collect the items from our team. The bus is the first of its kind in the region and will be going on a journey across the UAE to collect recyclable waste from communities and to raise awareness on the importance of recycling.
The Dubai Investments Green Run supports the Smart Dubai initiatives founded on the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to promote a green economy.
Liju Abdussalam, Regional QHSE Manager for Applus+ in the Middle East & Africa commented, “Applus+ is proud to participate in Dubai’s first Green Run. Many sustainability concepts were in place during the event, which encouraged our employees to be more aware of their daily practices and lifestyle. We are looking forward to next year’s event.”
Applus+ participated in the Dubai Green Run as part of it's continued commitment to achieve a more sustainable world.
