BGreen Awards 2013: The Winners

More than 300 people attended one of the biggest evenings in the UAE last night for the BGreen Awards 2013.

The glittering ceremony at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai recognised the sustainability achievements of organisations across the country in 12 categories.

Among the guests were government delegations from Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), Dubai Municipality and Emirates Transport.

Addressing the audience at the beginning, DTCM’s Shaikha Ebrahim Al Mutawa who told the audience of her joy over the Expo 2020 win for Dubai, announced the previous evening. “The people are united, not just the emirates but all the nationalities,” she said.

Referring to the Expo bid’s focus on sustainability, she described the BGreen Awards as “a celebration of sustainability and rewarding those companies who have begun the journey – everyone is a winner.”

Introducing the evening BGreen senior editor Gary Wright told the audience: “This evening is about recognising achievements of organisations both large and small and while there can be only one winner in each category. Each of the finalists has my personal congratulations for their sustainability efforts in the past 12 months.”
