Empower plants Union Tree to celebrate spirit of the Union and express loyalty to the country

November 29th, 2012

As part of the “Union Tree” Initiative launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Empower, the leading district cooling provider in the Middle East, planted a ‘Union Tree’ in the garden area of the Dubai Healthcare City power plant.

Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower said: “We have planted a ‘Union Tree’ in response to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid’s initiative which celebrates the spirit of the union and love for the country. The initiative has generated wide response from the public and private firms and it will highlight the importance of union for coming generations.”

Bin Shafar said this initiative is the epitome of the country’s love for the environment and contains a strong message for the younger generation. He said: “The UAE government has put a lot of efforts since the 1970s into planting trees and increasing green areas. The many public parks we see today are the result of the union founders’ vision.”

Bin Shafar said: “We are one of the first to implement this initiative as the establishment of Empower was driven by the principle of saving natural resources by utilizing best environment-friendly cooling techniques. Our main operations are in sync with the symbolism of the ‘Union Tree’ as we are using the leading world class services.”

He added: “Protecting the environment is the responsibility of all, including the public and private sectors as well as all social communities. This initiative is clear evidence on HH Sheikh Mohammed’s vision for the UAE in the field of environmental conservation, to match the achievements on social, educational, and business levels.”

Empower has successfully increased the usage of district cooling systems in residential buildings, commercial and hotels. These systems are ideal in saving operational and maintenance costs and protecting environmental resources.

Empower is a leader among district cooling companies in the Middle East. Its strategy is based on protecting the environment by increasing the usage of district cooling systems.
