A look into the future, and the frames that
unfold in the sight are those of endless miseries to the mankind
- desertification of agricultural lands, fast extinction of several
species of flora and fauna, drying groundwater sources, disappearing
rivers, depleting coal mines, drying oil wells, felled forests,
melting snow mountains.
rain forests are catching fire, sea levels are on the rise, inhabitable
land area is steadily shrinking; population is ever on the increase;
global temperature levels are rising; sandstorms, cyclones and floods
recur more often; drinking water is becoming dearer by the day and
expanding holes in the ozone layer are making exposure to sunrays
Do we need more proof for the inevitability
of the gloom we are fast approaching???? We are at crossroads now.
Can we reverse these trends now? Unfortunately, NO. Extinction is
forever and damages are irreversible.
The best we can do is to arrest the pace
and make this earth livable for a few extra thousand years. Supercomputers
and biotechnology can do little to help us, unless we help ourselves.
The humaneness lost in the process of human-centered thoughts and
actions will have to be regained in a nature-centered effort by
the humanity, if we are to sustain this environment for our future
It is this realization, thrown out during
a casual evening chat amongst a few technocrats, environmentalists
and businessmen from different parts of the world, which gave birth
to Global Engineering Systems F.Z.C., U.A.E.(GES), a company dedicated
to the cause and business of preserving the environment. Today GES
has grown to be a multi million dollar, multidivisional company
with operations in various countries from east to west and north
to south. While, the core objective of the company, like any other
business enterprise, is to be a profitable organization, it identifies
this objective with the necessity to be a socially committed organization
where making profits is just one of many goals and aspirations.
