Environmental research institute to open 2011-end

The UAE’s leading integrated environmental management company, headquartered in Sharjah – announced its plans to establish the Bee’ah Environmental Research Institute aimed at promoting environmental research and advocacy.

The institute will be launched officially by the end of 2011, in line with Bee’ah’s growth strategy to be a global leader for creating positive environmental change throughout the Middle East.

The Institute’s main objective is to give students the opportunity to learn and explore new technologies and concepts that could aid environmental sustainability, while also researching alternative environmental waste management practices.

Khaled Al Huraimel, the General Manager and Managing Director of Bee’ah, announcing the Bee’ah Environmental Research Institute, said Bee’ah’s ultimate vision is to become a shining example of what an environmental organisation can achieve.

“This vision,” he said, “was not restricted by borders, and Bee’ah hoped to expand not only to the rest of the UAE, but regionally as well.” 

Dr. Salah S. Hassan, Professor and Chairman of Marketing at the School of Business of The George Washington University, said: “Bee’ah is an example of what we stand for – commitment to educating the youth.  Our students will not only experience firsthand what it means to work with an emerging global leader, but will also learn important lessons about integrity and positive environmental change.”
