“At Dulsco we believe that together we can make our future sustainable.

“This trophy that we developed for this tournament is a prime example. Glass bottles that were discarded as waste have been transformed to develop this trophy. Dulsco has been working behind the scenes to help organisations work seamlessly for the last 82 years and has always contributed towards the environment and strengthened the human capital within the economy. At Dulsco, we call it ‘the power of invisible’. We will further consolidate our thoughts and strategies and take this mission forward,” concluded Stockton.
‘Waste’ was transformed to ‘Art’ by talented local artists at Chocho Ma Studios. Dulsco and Chocho Ma Studios also organized a workshop for Emirati art students to learn this skill and guide them towards a sustainable future.
