WASTE ASIA
Kazakhstan recycling awareness program
In the Kazakhstan office, our local team launched a recycling segregation campaign with the objective to promote sustainable recycling in the workplace, while also allowing the organisation to contribute to a worthy charity. The initiative aimed to collect 27 tonnes of plastics, with the proceeds used to buy clothing for children in local villages. The campaign serves as an opportunity to help give back to the community while promoting sustainable behaviours amongst our employees.

Mozambique recycling awareness program
In Mozambique, our team decided to experiment with the use of composters to recycle the portion of organic waste produced by our canteens in Pemba and the Mecufi Resort. The aim of this initiative is to reduce the quantity of waste generated and the associated disposal costs. In the next step of the project, the team are working on raising awareness among the local population by donating our compost to the Mecufi community or other communities affected by our projects.
