For the celebration of World Environment Day, which falls on the fifth of this month, Unilever, in collaboration with the Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment, the Ministry of Economy, the Emirates Nature Society and the World Wide Fund for Nature, hosted a special screening of the environmental documentary Going Circular.
The presentation in Dubai was attended by a group of environmental activists and youth councils. The film was about the concept of a sustainable economy, which aims to eliminate waste and conserve the planet’s resources through solutions inspired by nature. The film offers insights from four thinkers from around the world, including the 102-year-old inventor Dr. James Lovelock, biomimic biologist Jeanine Benius, designer Arthur Huang and financial expert John Fullerton, who have researched contemporary environmental, economic and social crises. They discovered that imitating nature’s behaviors helps to find appropriate solutions to create a sustainable economy. On the sidelines of the event, speakers reviewed current environmental issues in the UAE and the country’s ambitions to create a sustainable economy.
For his part, Khalil Yassin, Director of Customer Development Operations at Unilever in the Middle East and North Africa, said: “We seek to consolidate our leading position as a responsible and sustainable company that meets the needs of the future and thus improves our business and capabilities. This documentary highlights the need to be aware of the deterioration of the earth’s resources and the importance of establishing sustainability in the environmental and business sectors. “
