Emirates opens submission ideas for the “A Greener Tomorrow” initiative
Emirates recently announced its “A Greener Tomorrow” initiative and has allocated funds of US$150,000 to support environmental or conservation projects.
The initiative is open to any established not-for-profit environmental or conservation organization to support a project with clear environmental outcomes. Funds for the initiative have been raised through internal recycling programs across the Emirates Group. Emirates recycles more than 5 million kg of materials per annum across various programs in Dubai.
Applicants for “A Greener Tomorrow” will be assessed through two stages of review.
Proposal submissions will first be evaluated by an Emirates committee comprised of Senior Emirates Executives, members of the Environment department and a selection of EmChamps (staff of the Emirates Group with a passion for environmental issues).
Submissions that meet the awarding criteria and committee review will be invited to the second stage where they will present their project proposal in greater detail to the Emirates committee for final review.
More information and the initiative criteria can be found here.
Furthermore, for those wanting to nominate an organization, please send the organization’s name, email address and contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
