Gulftainer’s recent efforts to increase its recycling efficiency have been rewarded as senior management welcomed a delegation from Bee’ah, who presented a certificate to recognize the Company’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment.
Bee’ah is the Middle East’s largest and award winning waste management company, also based in Sharjah, and their team, Saif Abdulla Al Sharif, Director of the Recycle Business & Collection, Muhammad Musa and Hasim Kathiri, met with Gulftainer’s Managing Director, Peter Richards, Director of Business Services, Ramesh Shivakumaran and Group QHSE Manager, Magimairaj Bose, to present the award and discuss further initiatives.
Some of the initiatives now in place within the Gulftainer workplace include: recycling paper, plastic, e-wastes in the offices and oils, batteries and tyres in the engineering departments to name just a few. The company no longer disposes of any of its wastes into landfill.
Peter Richards, Gulftainer managing director said: “We are delighted to accept this certificate from Bee’ah and to be able to play our part in making the Emirate of Sharjah a greener environment. As a company we believe it is our responsibility to lead by example and to increase awareness of the impact of using the 3 R’s (reduce, re-use, recycle) in the work place and beyond. We hope that these initiatives will highlight just how easy it is to make a difference.”
