The Green Award Foundation was invited to participate and deliver a speech in the United Arab Emirates Environmental Summit which was held in Abu Dhabi on 1st - 3rd March 2010.
The Summit was organised by the UAE National Transport Authority in collaboration with NAMEPA. Leading experts from around the world discussed strategies and implications for ensuring a robust and environmentally sound maritime industry.
The summit closed with a workshop that established a framework of action for the region.
Amongst many other good ideas, the Green Award program gained very positive attention from the groups during the workshop. The conference participants expressed strong interest in the scheme and devoted much attention to aspects of the program. As a result, it was suggested to make the Green Award program applicable in the Middle East Region.
The Green Award Foundation will explore possibilities for the above in cooperation with the UAE National Transport Authority.
