Emirates Marine Environmental Group - CSR
March 4, 2018
CSR is one of HORECA’s most passionate topics. On the morning of 26th February 2018, 10 HORECAN’s put on their sportswear and headed down to Emirates Marine Environmental Group. The morning started with a fun drive of singing and team bonding before arriving to the beautiful scenery. We then had a light breakfast with Major Ali and the team including traditional Emirati pancakes, Arabic coffee and dates while he gave us a background on EMEG and its history. Their team then explained what they do including the research conducted, experiences they have encountered and interesting facts about the animals and environment. It was then time to get down to work! After a walk through the mangroves and on to the beach, we raced to see who can pick up the most waste. It was unbelievable the things we came across, slippers, a recycling bin lid and even a fire extinguisher! Overall, we collected over 10 bags of waste between us. It was a great day where the team bonded whilst also doing good for the environment. Thank you to the team at EMEG who welcomed us with warm arms and we cannot wait to go back!
