GMG, a global well-being company retailing, distributing and manufacturing a portfolio of leading international and home-grown brands across the sports, food and health sectors has partnered with the Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) to install a water station in Al Qudra as part of the ‘Dubai Can’ initiative.

According to the statement, the partnership is part of GMG’s commitment to supporting nationwide sustainable development and catering to the well-being of communities across the UAE. In addition to the water station in Al Qudra, the company has installed drinking water filters across its UAE offices. 

GMG's support for the 'Dubai Can' initiative follows the recent launch of its 'Make a Difference' sustainability strategy framework, statement said. 

Dubai Can is a sustainability initiative by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai that aims to reduce single-use water bottles by encouraging individuals to use refillable water bottles. Free water refill stations are being installed at prime public locations across the city as part of the project. 

Mohammad A Baker, Deputy Chairman and CEO of GMG, said, “We are, therefore, proud to be associated with Dubai Can, an initiative that will go a long way at protecting our environment by minimising the impact of plastic waste. We look forward to continuing to work with the government and other key stakeholders to promote positive change and raise awareness of environmental issues.” 

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), said: “The installation of this new water fountain in Al Qudra by GMG will provide residents and visitors with yet another incentive to let go of their reliance on single-use plastic bottles and opt instead for refillable water bottles. The availability of so many Dubai Can water fountains at key locations in the city is also testament to the unique public-private partnership model that has immensely contributed towards Dubai’s continued success and touches the heart of our sustainability strategy, which revolves around the central pillars of creativity and collaboration.”
