My name is Salman Haleemi. I am from Afghanistan, currently studying my master’s in Energy & Sustainable Development. I am the winner of the Sustainability scholarship, offered by De Montfort University. I will be working with the DMU Sustainability team on various projects to promote sustainability within and outside the university campus.
My interest in sustainability developed when I was working as a drilling operations officer in Afghanistan. Within our profession, we do various things which are hazardous to mother nature. So, my goal is to play a significant role in the Petroleum Industry to reduce the harmful emissions caused by the extraction and distillation of Petroleum. Working with the DMU sustainability team would help me to gain a wide understanding of sustainability. Together with the Sustainability team, we would work hard to implement the UN sustainable development goals in every sector across the country because, the future generation also deserves a better living!
