Tristar Group has launched its 7th consecutive Sustainability Report with a commitment to further support the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Tristar Group CEO Eugene Mayne handed the first copy of the report entitled ‘Empowering the Next Generation for Sustainable Development’ to Emirates Environmental Group chairperson Habiba Al Marashi in a town hall meeting held recently at the Tristar head office in Jebel Ali, where the company celebrated World Environment Day.
“We have and will continue our support towards the advancement of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals as we have an obligation to recognize and promote the need for stability of our environment and to acknowledge the social impact of our business in the communities in which we operate. We at Tristar believe that Business for Purpose must rank at par with Business for Profit and we will continue to champion this mission in the years to come,” said Mayne.
Tristar is promoting SDG No. 3 on Good Health and Well-being and No. 4 on Quality Education with its road safety awareness campaigns in the GCC and with its support to the education sector in South Sudan and Kenya, respectively.
Al Marashi commended Tristar for being a homegrown responsible business: “I was here at the launch of the 1st edition of the sustainability report and I am delighted to be launching the 7th edition of the sustainability report of our corporate member – Tristar, a company that has truly embraced the concept of ‘responsible business’,” she said.
“I am sure Tristar will continue to be committed to reporting on its initiatives leading by example, and I hope to be part of all the sustainability milestones throughout its journey,” she added.

In 2014, 2016 and 2017 Tristar was received the runner-up award in the Partnership and Collaborations category for its public road safety awareness campaign in the UAE.
