Dubai Hills Estate in big eco-sustainability drive

19-08-2018

Dubai Hills Estate, one of the largest master-planned communities in the city developed by Emaar Properties in joint venture with UAE-based Meraas, is underlining its commitment to environmental sustainability by saying no to plastic bottles across its site offices.

Currently being developed with several features including an18-hole championship golf course, the Dubai Hills Mall and Dubai Hills Park, Dubai Hills Estate is a serene and lush master-development located only 15 minutes from Downtown Dubai.

In support of the ‘Drop It’ campaign launched in the UAE by Goumbook with the goal of uniting individuals and the local business community in rethinking single-use plastic consumption, Dubai Hills Estate has set a new precedent that will a secure a cleaner future for the coming generations.

Accordingly, staff at Dubai Hills Estate site offices will no longer use single-use plastic water bottles or other disposable containers but will instead bring in own water bottles or use glasses. Water coolers have been set up on the premises too.

Workers on the various sites are also encouraged to reduce the usage of plastic bottles and to adopt reusable bottles, said a statement from Meraas.  

The campaign comes on the back of estimates that the UAE has the highest consumption of bottled water per capita in the world. Dubai Hills Estate’s ‘Drop It’ campaign is the first in an Emaar project.

Located at the crossroads of Al Khail and Umm Suqeim Roads, Dubai Hills Estate offers the unique opportunity to live a serene lifestyle in the heart of Dubai with breathtaking views of the iconic Dubai skyline, in addition to parks and other lifestyle amenities.-TradeArabia News Service
