Tatiana founded Goumbook back in 2009.Goumbook is an online information platform that helps source products, services and materials through its unique Green Directory. The aim is to help manufacturers, retailers and consumers to meet and boost the local green economy. Goumbook’s desire is to create a new global community focused on environmental responsibility, uniting environmental experts, organizations, businesses and consumers from the Middle East and North Africa. Goumbook also offers offline services to get individuals and companies engaged in environmental initiatives and CSR practices.

In 2011, Goumbook launched the ‘Give a Ghaf’ Tree Planting Program, a not-for-profit initiative aiming to boost awareness on the local ecosystem, protecting fauna and flora from the dangers or desertification, mass construction, water depletion and extinction.

CSR Interest & Background :
I moved to Dubai in 2005. Having studied Architecture and Urban Planning in Italy, I quickly realized that the local ‘eco environment’ was lagging behind and it made me think on how to help raise awareness among the local community: curb pollution, conserve natural resources and reduce the impact on the environment. My passion for Sustainability led me to co-found Goumbook.com in 2009, creating the first online green information resource and green directory for the MENA Region. My commitment to the Environment blossomed into a sense of duty towards the community and today I try to be actively involved and engaged in the local green arena.
