The Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai actively participated in the Can Collection Drive organized by the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) on November 5, 2023, advocating the theme "Say 'Yes' to Can Recycling, 'No' to Carbon Emissions."
As part of the hotel’s sustainability initiatives led by the Human Resources and Engineering team, the hotel collected 73kg of cans and delivered them to EEG. The campaign aims to spread awareness about the need for waste management and recycling to protect the environment.
Mr. Simon Moore, the General Manager of Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai, expressed, “Waste stands as one of the foremost environmental challenges, and it is our responsibility to contribute to the ongoing protection of our environment. We are committed to actively participating in initiatives that promote an eco-friendly and sustainable society, ensuring the longevity of our planet for future generations. Preserving our environment is key to maintaining the safety and health of our planet.”
Since its inception in 1991 in the UAE, EEG has been at the forefront of the environmental conservation and sustainability movement. EEG’s 1st recycling action programme and one of the most successful campaigns is the “Can Collection Campaign” running since 1997. The campaign strives to foster a culture of effective waste management and recycling. It also works continuously to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and resource conservation to preserve nature's delicate balance and nurture a healthier planet for all living beings.
