Keolis MHI hosts Sustainable Harvest initiative to mark UAE National Environment Day

by Madaline Dunn

Keolis MHI, a transportation company and operator of Dubai Metro and Tram, recently hosted a community harvest event, to mark UAE National Environment Day, and in line with the announcement of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE, to extend the “Year of Sustainability” into 2024.

Organised by the Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment (QHSE) department, the event took place at their community garden and brought together staff, the executive team, and special guests for a morning of cultivating fresh produce and fostering environmental awareness. The harvested vegetables were then packaged in brown paper bags, supporting the UAE’s ban on plastic bags.

Speaking about this, Paul Williams, QHSE Director at Keolis MHI, said: “At Keolis MHI, we extend beyond delivering transportation services to actively shaping a sustainable future. Whether engaging with the public or fostering an eco-conscious culture within our organisation, we emphasise a clear message – Together, we can create a meaningful impact. Our community harvest event illustrates not just our dedication to environmental responsibility, but also our commitment to staff engagement and raising awareness among our peers”.

Adding: “A major highlight of this event, was our choice of sustainable packaging – a deliberate step. As we proudly contribute to the UAE’s efforts to reduce plastic waste, we actively support initiatives aimed at creating a cleaner and more sustainable environment.”
