Emirates Green Building Council and Canon exhibit winning photos from 'Get Up Green Up' competition
Canon Middle East, a world leader in imaging solutions, and Emirates Green Building Council (EGBC) displayed the top environmental photos from the ‘Get Up Green Up’ photography competition at the 3rd Annual EGBC Congress.
The ‘Get Up Green Up’ competition was open to students enrolled at any university in the UAE to submit their images for review. It was intended to encourage the community to become ambassadors of ‘green lifestyles’ and highlight the positive contributions individuals can make. The winning image, captured by Nadia Saleh from the American University of Sharjah, and the runner-up photos were displayed throughout the 3rd Annual EGBC Congress.

Additionally, Canon was recognised in 2014 for the ‘Best Environmental Practices in the Arab World’ by the Arab Organization for Social Responsibility.
