The Emirates Wildlife Society, a non-profit organization, was established under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is tackling a number of crises facing our oceans, including pollution, overfishing, and climate change. Earlier this year, Gulf Craft became a member, also signing up to the World Ocean Council, a global cross-sector body that brings businesses together to foster environmental stewardship. By joining forces with people from industries as diverse as oil, shipping, and tourism, from all over the planet, Gulf Craft hopes to find solutions to some of the most critical ecological challenges of our era.
As an active member of the Emirates Wildlife Society, Gulf Craft employees volunteered at the event in various capacities- hosting a quiz, educating guests about the Emirates Wildlife Society's initiative, assisting at registration areas, arranging water stations for the guests and the teams, taking event photos for social media and even dressing in a panda costume, EWF-WWF's official mascot!

GoFor24 is a global initiative that raises money for a number of worthwhile causes. Teams from different companies took turns to challenge the Dubai All-Stars football team in a series of hour-long matches. The 15-member Gulf Craft team played valiantly against the Heroes team whose members are from the All-Stars Football Club held at the Dubai Sports City last Friday.
