Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 08 June 2019: “The occasion of the World Environment Day 2019, with its theme ‘Air Pollution,’ is an ideal opportunity for governments, industries, and individuals to renew their commitment to improving air quality in their cities and regions through the active adoption and implementation of solutions that can mitigate the impact of this menace.
Given the rate at which the earth is getting polluted, there exists an urgent need to step up proactive efforts to save our environment for future generations. Breathing fresh air is a primary requirement for good health and overall well-being.

It is high time we modify our everyday lives with an aim to reduce pollution and its contribution to global warming.”
