Dubai Municipality bags prestigious environment award

The Dubai Municipality (DM) has won one of the world’s most respected environmental awards, the National Energy Globe Award United Arab Emirates 2015. The award is given in recognition of outstanding performance in terms of energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource conservation worldwide.

The project “Dubai sustainability excellence: Role of comprehensive wastewater management” submitted by the municipality’s sewage treatment plants department won the prestigious recognition for the authority.

The project focused on the new sewage treatment plants built across the emirate to recycle water so it can be used for irrigation without causing any hazard to the environment.

Also Energy Globe presented the award-winning project as part of a global online campaign on the World Environment Day, to a wider audience. The campaign ran under the patronage of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) and in cooperation with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and got an excellent response.

“To be honoured with this award is a great recognition of our work for a better environment. It motivates us to continue our endeavours in the future,” said Director of the Sewage Treatment Plants Department at Dubai Municipality Redha Hassan Salman, National Energy Globe United Arab Emirates winner.

The best project from each country will receive the national Energy Globe Award and will be presented on Energy Globe’s worldwide online platform.​
