The multinational motor oil company, Veedol has dedicated itself to partner with the Antarctic Youth Ambassador Programme (AYAP); by committing its support to the world’s first student group from the U.A.E on an expedition to Antarctica. The vision of AYAP is to create an international youth coalition of passionate Antarctic Adventurers who will champion the cause of renewable energy.

Veedol supported Master Sarthak Kumar, a student of grade 12 at the GEMS academy, Dubai, UAE. Gems Academy has become the first school in the world to join Robert Swan on an expedition to Save Antarctica by sending the first team of students this year. A group of ten students from the UAE were selected for the expedition by Robert Swan (

Fresh and fully enthused, from the recently concluded expedition Sarthak will now embark with his team on a project entitled “To Save World – Save Antarctica”, by propagating the importance of renewable energy now and for the coming generations.

Arun Kumar, General Manager (International Operations) Veedol International said, “Veedol has pioneered the innovations in the lube industry, for over a century and in continuing with this trend take great pride in associating the brand with such a noble yet challenging initiative”.

Veedol brand, originally from U.S.A has many firsts in its house of landmarks starting from being chosen as the world’s First motor oil by Henry Ford for the First automobile car “Model-T” in 1914, which has transformed personal mobility across the globe.

Ewan Ramsay, General Manager of Galadari Automobiles said, “Our entire team is committed in creating awareness about renewable energy not only to our families but to the residents of UAE and together with Veedol we will be part of all such movements the student group is initiating to implement from now”. In the coming days, it is expected that the first student group from UAE to Antarctica will schedule visits to schools, colleges and universities with focused messages to educate and create awareness of preserving energy for the next generations to come; targeted to the young and old generation alike.

Galadari Automobiles Co. Ltd., the partner distributor of Veedol range of lubricants in the UAE, is equally committed to the noble cause. The company has streamlined plans leading to saving energy at all levels – at the work place and staff residences.
