CEO of Etihad ESCO, Ali Al Jassim’s Statement on World Environment Day 2018
“As consumption of resources keep rising at unprecedented rates, it is important to remember that these resources are non-replenishable.
Irresponsible consumption and various day to day practices that pollute the environment can irreversibly destroy them, thereby depriving our future generations of the benefits our ancestors passed on to us.
We are blessed with rich biodiversity in the surrounding Arabian Gulf, which houses a diverse marine ecosystem. Plastic pollution has emerged as one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time and the impact of this environmental degradation on human lives and other lifeforms can be highly detrimental.
It is high time we address the harmful effects of single-use plastic on the environment and adopt lifestyles that are much more in harmony with the nature.”
