CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Engaging society through education is on the top of the company's strategic goals. Barari Forest Management is in the process of developing an educational strategy in collaboration with other government agencies. Currently, the company, along with support from the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, has decided to reach out and engage the community with sound educational and awareness programmes.
As we feel strongly that education and awareness is integral to fulfill our commitment and mandate to protect and conserve the environment, we are working towards establishing a Barari Learning Centre (BLC) where we can share the best environmental practices and promote knowledge transfer to society. In line with our mandate, we have recently been part of events that serve the community in different ways. One of them is the "Western Region without Waste" initiative wherein we provided equipment and workforce for the cleaning campaign.
After storms and torrential rain, almost 80 percent of the clean-up across the emirate of Abu Dhabi was complete as the public and private sectors worked together to deal with the damage caused by last March's extreme weather. More than 1,000 municipal employees were involved in the post-storm cleaning drive, cleaning day and night in coordination with police, Musanada, centre of waste management and private sector as well. Barari was one of the active companies which was involved in the clean-up of specified locations in Abu Dhabi city.
