Al Zahia Launches Environmental Awareness Campaign
Al Zahia, Sharjah’s first-ever mixed use gated community, is introducing its first ever Environmental Awareness Day to encourage residents to reuse, recycle and reduce. Supported by Bee’ah, the Middle East’s award-winning environment and waste management company, the event is designed to encourage the community to adopt more environmentally friendly lifestyles in keeping with the design of the development. Al Zahia Awareness Day will include workshops on decorative recycling and games for children.
Lee Tabler, Head of Centre of Excellence at Majid Al Futtaim – Communities, said: “Al Zahia environmental awareness campaign reinforces the company’s commitment to sustainability. Through our partnership with Bee’ah we are aiming towards a greener future and awareness is the first step to action.”
As education plays a vital role towards a greener environment, Bee’ah’s Environment Awareness and Education Team have created an environmental educational initiative and informative workshops to develop a ‘greener future generation’.
Majid Al Futtaim, developer of Al Zahia, has a strong pedigree in green properties. The company has won several Gold awards for its sustainable buildings, solar energy, water recycling and other eco-initiatives and has recently achieved the highest ‘Green Star’ status, for the second year in a row from the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), for the implementation of international best practices in sustainability throughout the company’s real estate portfolio.
