Emirates Stallions Group participates in mangrove restoration project

by Madaline Dunn

Emirates Stallions Group (ESG), a subsidiary of International Holding Company, recently participated in the restoration of mangroves at Umm Yifenah Island, alongside employees from the group’s subsidiaries. 

Equipped with seedlings and spades, the team members planted mangroves at Umm Yifenah Island. This event was part of a series of similar activities aligned with the broader Abu Dhabi Mangrove Initiative. 

Kayed Khorma, CEO of ESG, commented: “Participating in this mangrove restoration project underscores our unwavering dedication to advancing sustainability within the UAE, aligning with the nation’s extended Year of Sustainability. This initiative not only contributes to mitigating the adverse effects of climate change, but also provides substantial benefits to our community and country.”

Adding: “The event was a powerful ESG team building activity that enriched our collective understanding of environmental challenges and demonstrated a strong commitment to steering our community towards a more sustainable and resilient future.”

Abu Dhabi, more broadly, is investing heavily in restoring mangrove ecosystems, and since 2020, 44 million mangrove trees have been planted in the emirate. Mangroves are powerful carbon sinks, and research finds that annually, their carbon sequestration potential is ten times greater than mature tropical forests.
