“I am honoured to be a recipient of this prestigious award. The UAE’s environmental stewardship was instilled by our nation’s founding father and president, the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. In 2005, Shaikh Zayed received the Champions of the Earth Award in recognition of his life-long efforts towards achieving sustainable development,” commented Dr Al Jaber.
