RAK Prop to join Earth Hour celebrations
Ras Al Khaimah, March 29, 2014
RAK Properties, the biggest property developer in Ras Al Khaimah, has called upon the residents of its local communities to switch off their lights tonight (March 29, 2014) to mark this year’s edition of Earth Hour.
The company will switch off the street lights, common area and non essential house lights of their flagship projects, Mina Al Arab, Julfar Towers and RAK Tower, for one hour during the event.
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) that engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues.
RAK Properties said the participation at Earth Hour reflects the company’s aim to increase community awareness on the importance of reducing energy consumption and the many advantages and benefits to be gained in doing so.
The move demonstrates continued commitment to the planet and the preservation of its natural resources, said Mohamed Sultan Al Qadi, the managing director and CEO of RAK Properties.
"Earth Hour carries a very strong message; urging everyone to take part in the collective efforts to help sustain the Earth and its resources. In line with this, the preservation of natural resources has always been an important concern for RAK Properties," he remarked.
"We have remained steadfast to our commitment of developing world class residential projects that are in compliance with green building standards, which has become a fundamental principle in our policies--because we believe that the future generations deserve to inherit a clean and safe world to live in," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
