National projects CEO first Mid East representative to join Earth Council Geneva
Geneva (ots) - Kuwaiti Musaed Al Saleh appointed board member of renowned global environment group
Vice Chairman and CEO of Kuwait-based National Projects Holding Co (NPHC), Musaed Al Saleh, is the first Middle Eastern representative to be appointed to the board of Earth Council Geneva (ECG). A leading global environmental group based in Switzerland, ECG (www.earthcouncil.com) has trained over 7,000 students in 80 countries since its inception in 2002.
Renowned for its revolutionary approach to global environmental awareness, ECG strives to embrace best practice solutions and offers educational programs on topics of global importance such as climate change, global trade, sustainability and biodiversity.
"Musaed Al-Saleh" is a very welcome addition to our board during this stimulating phase of growth for Earth Council Geneva," said Reto Braun, Chairman of ECG, former CEO of Swiss post and previous President of Unisys.
"Musaed is our first representative from the Middle East, and comes to us highly recommended for the work his company is initiating within the region, such as the first integrated waste management and recycling park. He brings an expertise and wealth of both knowledge and contacts to our organisation, which we are extremely excited about.
"As global interest in sustainable development continually gains momentum, it is vital for us to have forward-thinking members on our board who are prepared to lead by example".
National Projects Holding Co is responsible for the development of Dubai Recycling Park, the Middle East's first fully integrated waste management and recycling park. Located within Dubai Industrial City, the park is due to commence construction mid-2008. Further in line with NPHC's vision for the future, the company held the UAE's first global climate change conference in Dubai in January 2006.
"It is an honor to be accepted onto the board of such a prestigious organisation as Earth Council Geneva," said Musaed Al-Saleh.
Pinpointing carbon accounting as the new global math, ECG has recently combined forces with the Greenhouse Gas Experts Network and ClimateCHECK to form the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management Institute (www.ghginstitute.org). The Institute is dedicated to professional e-learning on climate change, and will provide training on measuring and managing global GHG emissions.
