get involved and register to support Mission Green Earth

Sustainability is an important part of the way we do business at Nakheel. With this in mind, we would like to share various important sustainability initiatives with you to give you the opportunity to partake in them and make a difference.
Today we would like to introduce Mission Green Earth to you. Last year over 43 million people around the world, including 98 000 in the UAE, stood up in support of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals.
This year, millions more individuals are expected to not only stand up and take the pledge to support the millennium development goals, but also take action to support them too. To support this great initiative, all you have to do is:
Visit the Mission Green Earth Website to join the challenge by registering online –
by 5pm (Dubai Time - 13:00 GMT)
on Thursday October 16
Stand up alone or in a group and take the pledge sometime between the 17th and 19th of October (this means reading out the text below and sending a photograph if possible to Mission Green Earth)
Take action towards a more sustainable life – there are so many things we can do in the home or office, like turning off your lights and air-conditioning wherever possible, not taking disposable plastic shopping bags, printing less and using both sides of the paper, walking short distances instead of driving, eating more vegetarian, or planting a local species of tree that doesn’t require much watering (you can get seeds of local plants through Mission Green Earth, see their website for more ideas), recycling your waste, supporting sustainability initiatives etc.
For more information refer to the Mission Green Earth website and get involved in this great initiative!
