Emirates Environmental Group (EEG)

The Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) is a professional working group devoted to protecting the environment through means of education, action programs and community involvement. EEG is actively encouraged and supported by concerned local and federal government agencies.

It is the first environmental NGO in the world to be ISO 14001-certified (2001) and the only organization of its kind in the UAE with accredited status to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)’s Governing Council, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

EEG successfully formed the United Nations Global Compact Local Network in 2008 for the GCC States.  EEG is open to men and women of all nationalities, as well as to public and private organizations, academic establishments and international institutions.

EEG was established in September 1991 and has since grown considerably in members and range of programs. EEG’s membership is composed of students, individuals, corporate members, federal and local government agencies, universities, colleges and schools, as well as reputed regional and international institutions.
