(21 April 2011)
Canon Middle East Office At DIC To Also Host Bulb Exchange Program To Encourage Residents To Swap Non-Energy Efficient Bulbs With Energy Saving Alternatives


In line with its continuing thrust to be a socially responsible and environmentally conscious company, Canon Middle East, leader in imaging solutions, has announced that it has partnered with Dubai Internet City (DIC), a member of TECOM Investments, and Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF (EWS-WWF) to organise an environment photo exhibition in celebration of Earth Day, being observed in the UAE on April 22, 2011, which also coincides with the Regional Environment Day.

The exhibition will feature select environmental conservation-themed photos from WWF’s Global Photo Network in partnership with Canon Europe, in a move to raise environmental awareness among Dubai Internet City’s residents and visitors. The photo exhibition will be displayed at Canon Middle East’s office building in Dubai Internet City, as well as other buildings in DIC.

As part of its Earth Day celebrations, Canon will also be organising a bulb exchange program at its building to facilitate DIC residents to swap their non-energy efficient light bulbs with energy-saving alternatives.

Mai Youssef, Corporate Communications Manager at Canon Middle East, said: “Environment conservation has always been high on Canon’s agenda over the years, and we have been focused on taking proactive steps to promote environmental sustainability. To mark Earth Day this year we are pleased to team up with Emirates Wildlife Society – in association with WWF and Dubai Internet City and organise this photo exhibition and bulb exchange initiative. The key is to create as much awareness as possible on the pressing need to conserve the environment and to involve residents in the various programs that we undertake.”

Nicolas Delaunay, Director, Business Development & Marketing at EWS-WWF said: “This photo exhibition is a great opportunity for everyone to learn about environmental issues that matter to all of us. We hope that it will serve as an inspiration to adopt the necessary changes for a more sustainable future. We greatly appreciate the efforts put forward by Canon Middle East in organizing this exhibition in collaboration with DIC, in order to spread the message of environmental conservation amongst UAE residents.”

Majed Al Suwaidi, Director-Business Development at Dubai Internet City, said: “In today’s times, it has become absolutely imperative for companies in the region to take their environmental mandate seriously and initiate concrete steps towards its conservation. Dubai Internet City’s partnership with Canon is a testimony to the priority we place on this core responsibility. We are delighted to contribute to the environmental photo exhibition pioneered by Canon and look forward to supporting more such opportunities in the future.”

Canon Middle East has also successfully carried forward the momentum of its environmental campaign to 2011 through its involvement in major initiatives such as the “Earth Hour” celebration, “Can Collection campaign” and “UAE Clean Up Drive” by Emirates Environmental Group.
