Milaha, Qatar’s leading maritime and logistics company, and Elite Paper Recycling are partnering to promote environment sustainability and recycling across all their programmes and activities, it was announced yesterday.
Milaha executive vice president (support services) Saleh Abdullah al-Haroon and Elite Paper Recycling chairman Abdallah al-Suwaidi signed the partnership agreement.
Under the agreement, Milaha will continue to recycle its waste paper with the support of Elite Paper Recycling, which will deliver recycling cages, collect recyclable materials, and recycle waste paper in an eco-friendly manner.
The two companies will also jointly develop and organise initiatives to raise awareness on protecting the environment through sustainable practices.
Al-Haroon said, “We are pleased to sign this agreement, which falls in line with our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy of integrating the principles of sustainability and environmental practices into our daily local and business operations.”
He noted that Milaha remains committed to facilitating CSR activities and environmental awareness programmes in cooperation with both the public and private sectors.
Al-Suwaidi stated: “We are very happy to sign this partnership with Milaha. As an SME, we are keen to join efforts with Qatar’s national carriers to use their platforms and exchange their services. In line with Qatar National Vision 2030, Elite Paper Recycling has launched mega public awareness projects such as ‘The Eco Dome’ and the ‘Green Fleet’, as part of our overall communication strategy.
“We are committed to deploy recycling dumpsters at all Milaha premises as part of the public awareness on the environment and sustainability toward a better future for the
community in Qatar.”
Milaha and Elite Paper Recycling will also engage in other future collaborations on various levels, launching green initiatives, and raising awareness of a recycling culture through different types of activities throughout the year, organising workshops, participating in expos, and many other ‘green community’ opportunities.
