Kenyan delegation visits Bee'ah centre
Group given tour of waste management centre in Sharjah
A delegation of nine MPs from Kenya visited Bee’ah’s waste management centre in Sharjah, the region’s largest collection of waste segregation and processing facilities.
The top delegates gained in-depth insight into Bee’ah’s trajectory to date and learnt more about the organisation’s journey as a fully-fledged, Sharjah-based integrated environmental and waste management company.
In parallel, both parties discussed potential areas of collaboration and means to curb alarming trends in waste management.
While touring the facilities, the delegation – led by Honorary MP and chairperson of the committee Amina Abdalla and Kenyan Ambassador to the UAE Mohamed Gello – was able to delve deeper into Bee’ah’s expanding waste management operations and deliberate plans that could help advance common sustainability goals.
“It was an honour to host this prestigious delegation from Kenya at our waste management facilities in Sharjah,” said Khaled Al Huraimel, Group chief executive officer, Bee’ah.
“At Bee’ah, our objective has long been to steadily – and strategically – raise awareness of our waste management practices and bring Sharjah’s environmental solutions into the global limelight. We are proud that our operations are being recognised on an international scale and hope that this delegation visit takes us one step further in our mission to showcase the positive results reaped from sustainable practises.”
In 2013 alone, Bee’ah – the Middle East’s leading and award winning integrated environmental and waste management company – managed over 2.1mn tonnes of waste and diverted over 60% of waste from landfills in Sharjah, further advancing its goal of achieving zero-waste to landfill in the Emirate.
Bee’ah has also inaugurated a slew of unprecedented community and educational initiatives in Sharjah, from the Bee’ah School of Environment (BSOE) to Interschool Recycling competitions, the Gulf Ecosystem Research Centre, the myBee’ah loyalty programme, Clean-Up Campaigns and recycling programs.
