They will be joined by leading local and international companies including; BP, Shell, Total, National Bank of Abu Dhabi, ADNOC Distribution, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank and JODCO-Impex as co-sponsors and special event sponsors at ENVIRONMENT 2005.

ENVIRONMENT 2005 Exhibition & Conference will be held 30 January – 2 February 2005 at the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre. In parallel with the exhibition, a scientific conference on “Sustainable Transportation in Developing Countries” will be organised by the Environmental Research and Wildlife Development Agency (ERWDA) and the General Exhibitions Corporation (GEC).

Mr. Jamal S Al Dhaheri, General Manager, UWEC said “UWEC wishes to project our belief and practice in production of power and water to a standard that meets and exceeds the international environmental standards. With our participation at ENVRONMENT 2005, UWEC hopes to be able to explain to visitors the technology used in combining power and water production to maximise fuel efficiency”.

Dr. Mohamad Defrawi, Managing Director, Shell Abu Dhabi, said, “Shell is proud to participate once again in this ENVIRONMENT Exhibition & Conference. This year’s conference theme on Sustainable Transportation is very much in line with Shell’s leading work. In addition to our participation in the conference, Shell will have a specially-designed stand to welcome visitors to the exhibition. Shell colleagues will welcome visitors and will be able to highlight our approach and technological advances in the field of Sustainable Transportation”.

BP’s futuristic stand at the exhibition will also focus on sustainable transportation solutions. BP is currently working in partnership with governments, community groups, vehicle manufacturers and other experts on over 1,000 mobility initiatives, in 100 countries around the world. Under the banner ‘Holistic Mobility Solutions’, BP is studying mobility issues from every angle in order to reduce greenhouse gas emission – ultimately to zero – and make a significant difference in environmental, business and human terms.

Elaborating on its environmental commitment, a statement from Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank said, “The late President H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan always focussed on the improvement and sustenance of the environment. ADCB shares such values and strives to exemplify this vision not only by sponsoring such events but also by committing itself to the continued development and maintenance of existing and new companies and programmes for the environment. ADCB is committed in its values and vision for a brighter and healthier UAE and environmental well being is certainly among the top priorities”.
