Your Green Connection

Goumbook connects people and companies to enter the region’s green economy, form new business relationships and establish local partnerships.

Goumbook empowers local businesses and international organizations based in the UAE to contribute positively to the advancement of their sustainable development by engaging their management and staff in CSR activities and events, making them more aware and concerned with environmental issues.

Specific Objectives:

  • To spread the environmental message in preserving and protecting the environment
  • To increase the level of internal awareness on all local, regional and global environmental issues
  • To assist, where possible, in implementing environmental programs and projects
  • To promote positive environmental action by individuals through active participation in specific projects, campaigns and activities (see our ‘Give a Ghaf Tree Planting Programme‘, ‘Drop It – Rethink Plastic‘ and ‘Drop It Youth‘ campaigns)
  • To promote community waste reduction and recycling schemes, both to protect the environment and to improve the community’s environmental awareness
  • To exchange information, experience and practices inviting green businesses to present their services and products
  • To mobilize the experts on various environmental issues from the public and private sectors.
