Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai has successfully concluded its participation in the Can Collection Drive, organised by the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG).
The campaign works to spread awareness on the need for waste management and recycling in order to protect the environment.
“As part of our CSR policy we are glad to support initiatives such as the Can Collection Drive,” remarked general manager, Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai, Simon Moore. “At hotels we generate large volumes of solid waste and projects such as these help us to protect the environment, preserve natural resources and reduce costs. We are proud of the enterprise and care for the environment shown by our team in this respect as every can counts in reducing our carbon footprint. The work of EEG is truly inspirational and is aimed at creating a sustainable society.”
Since its inception, the Can Collection Drive has gained tremendous support from all sectors of society. As a result of this, the EEG has successfully collected a total of 313,352kg of aluminium cans in just over two decades. This year’s drive saw the participation of 160 entities, including hotels, families, academic institutions and corporations.
