Dubai Investments Park Plants Over 10,000 Trees To Mark World Environment Day
(6 June 2015)

 

Reinforcing its commitment to a greener environment, Dubai Investments Park [DIP], the one-of-its-kind integrated commercial, industrial and residential community in Middle East, has announced a new initiative to plant over 10,000 trees and shrubs to coincide with the World Environment Day on June 5.

The plantation drive, focused on two roads – A4 and B2 in DIP-1, is part of DIP's ennvironmental responsibility. The plantation includes Delonix Regia, Conocarpus, Azadirachta Indica and Neem trees, as also Bougainvillea, Clerodendron & Vitex shrubs, which will absorb hundreds of tonnes of carbon dioxide from atmosphere annually, making DIP a greener and better place to live.

The first sapling as part of this initiative was planted by Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager of DIP, at a special ceremony onsite.

Saeed Bugaraah, Chief Operating Officer of DIP, said: Since its inception, DIP has remained committed to sustainable practices that benefit the community and has contributed to profound and lasting change through tree planting initiatives. DIP is also one of the green zones in Dubai, with over 20,000 trees planted along the common areas and gated communities within the development, besides landscaping along 70km of road side.

The initiative is not only aimed at enhancing the DIP community spaces, but also raise awareness about the importance of conservation and reinforce that small steps can achieve big results. One large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people – imagine the benefits of such a plantation drive,, he added.

DIP has conscientiously endeavored to establish green development and a balanced environment for residents and enterprises within its sprawling mixed-use development. It is mandatory for DIP business clients to landscape between 10-20 per cent of their plot areas.

Over the last 10 years, DIP has recycled over 51 million cubic metres of waste water and reduced over 1.25 million tonnes of carbon dioxide through its energy-efficient sustainability programme.
