September 25, 2017: Globe Express Services (GES), one of the globe's leading providers of supply chain solutions, has announced its recent partnership with Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF (EWS-WWF), a leading local environmental NGO which is committed to protecting the UAE's natural heritage - our climate, seas, land and the biodiversity that lives within it.  As a Corporate Member, GES will support EWS-WWF's long-term conservation initiatives. 

Safeguarding the UAE's natural environment, both on land and offshore, is fast becoming one of the top priorities for the UAE's leadership. Today, environmental organizations throughout the Emirates work alongside several government bodies to ensure the UAE's natural heritage is preserved to set the foundation for a strong economy and thriving society. EWS-WWF was established in 2001 under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's representative in Al Dhafra region and Chairman of Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi out of a need to protect biodiversity in key sites across the Emirates, including species and ecosystems of concern in the UAE, and contribute to policy and institutional framework to address environmental issues.

GES' partnership with EWS-WWF will reinforce the company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda by providing funds to support a number of projects focused on marine & terrestrial conservation, climate change and education. EWS-WWF provides the resources required to give its partners the freedom they need to achieve their sustainability goals, in adherence with their CSR framework and core company values.

Commenting on the partnership, Mustapha Kawam, President and CEO of GES said: “Our collaboration with EWS-WWF reflects our commitment to reinforcing our responsibility towards protecting biodiversity in the UAE and preserving natural resources for the future generations. It highlights the uncompromising values and dedication of both companies to enlighten the local community on the importance of environmental conservation. This will enrich understanding of climate change, and ensure a brighter sustainable future for the environment in both: UAE and abroad.” 

The association between GES and EWS-WWF also supports the efforts of the UAE Government to work alongside the private sector to conserve the country's biodiversity in alignment with its future development goals, as outlined in UAE Vision 2021.

For her part, Laila Mostafa Abdullatif, Director General of EWS-WWF, commented: “EWS-WWF prides itself on its continuous efforts to work alongside individuals as well as corporations in the UAE and the Gulf region to conserve biodiversity and tackle climate change through a wide range of educational, awareness, policy, and science -based conservation initiatives. Working with GES will give us the opportunity to further explore the principles of environmental advocacy, innovation and technology.”
