Dubai Culture & Arts Authority has launched an internal paper recycling project that encourages the Authority’s employees to reuse paper and reduce waste.
Dubai Culture, the Emirate’s dedicated entity for culture, arts and heritage, explained that the project, or ‘Namaa’ has been launched by its corporate social responsibility team across the Authority, and will see all paper recycled into new materials.
The organisation is tasked with enhancing Dubai’s cultural scene and drawing attention to the Emirate’s rich heritage with a variety of initiatives that take place throughout the year.
The Authority’s mandate is to build bridges of constructive dialogue between different civilisations and cultures through enriching initiatives that benefit the Emirate’s citizens, residents and visitors.
The project aims to help Dubai Culture achieve sustainability and avoid wasting resources by encouraging the adoption of environmentally friendly business concepts among the Authority’s employees.
The project has managed to recycle 100% of Dubai's cultural documents, including envelopes of all sizes as well as internal and external correspondence papers, and the Authority is currently using recycled paper on a daily basis.
Dubai Culture said that it protects the environment and promotes sustainability via a number of initiatives and projects.
The Authority also noted that it recently supported Dubai Electricity & Water Authority’s ‘Let's Make this Summer Green’ environmental awareness campaign, which was hosted at the Al Twar branch of Dubai Public Library, and also donated used devices to Dubai Municipality’s Digital Devices Refurbishment Centre with the aim of minimising e-waste.
