Dolphin Radiators is one of the key sponsors of this project.
This is to commemorate the World Environment Week beginning June 5th. IAHV volunteers will distribute plant saplings free during this week across the seven Emirates. The World Environment Day theme selected for 2005 is ‘Green Cities’ and the slogan is ‘Plan for the Planet’. World Environment Day, commemorated each year on 5 June, is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.
“When we came to UAE over a decade ago, the land was not as green as it is today. Now as we move on we need to quadruple the greening initiative in country and across the region. To serve that objective, we are delighted to be part of this initiative managed by IAHV,” said Mr. N.J.Nooruddin, Managing Director, Dolphin Radiators and Cooling systems limited.
The International Association for Human Values (IAHV) has launched the ‘Adopt a Plant’ project to help promote environmental awareness. Over the next month and a half, volunteers of IAHV will be educating the public about the need for environmental preservation and awareness.
“Today the Dolphin Group stands at the leading edge of ‘Heat Transfer’ industry, with a stand as manufacturer of radiators, A/C coils, cores, heat exchangers, coolers, condensers, evaporators, boilers and brake linings. Even though we are in the technical side of things, our organisation is committed to the environment and through this initiative with IAHV we are here to elaborate the green message,” added Mr. Nooruddin.
Says Prabhakar Rao, COO of IAHV – Middle East, “These plants can be kept indoors near a window in an air-conditioned environment and when the season turns for the better in September, they can be planted in a pot in the balcony or in the garden. What makes this project unique is that these are tissue-cultured plants that are ethically grown in hermitically sealed bottles. They require no water or special care for 3 months. World Environmental Week falls in June, which is the worst time in the region for planting.”
ETA STAR, Radio4 Network, DubaiQuiz.com among other companies have extended support to this project. Organisations wanting to work with IAHV in this project may please contact its offices in the Dubai Humanitarian City – Telephone 04-3680219.
