Oman Environmental Service Holding Company SAOC (be'ah) has announced its participation in the upcoming Oman Sustainability Week which will be held under the auspices of His Highness Theyazin bin Haitham bin Tarik, Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth. The event will be hosted by the Petroleum Development Oman under the support of the Ministry of Energy and Minerals.
Through its strategic partnership with a group of leading companies in Oman, be'ah aims to showcase its most notable achievements that support Oman's drive for sustainable development to enhance economic growth. It also looks to highlight its strategy that keeps pace with Oman's Vision 2040 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Emphasizing the company's commitment to keeping pace with the objectives of the National Waste Management Strategy (NWMS) for a sustainable future, Shaikh Mohammed Sulaiman al Harthy (pictured), Executive Vice President-Strategic Development, be'ah, said, “Our strategic vision at be'ah aims to diversify processes of waste management, promote the concept of a circular economy, and build a culture of environmental sustainability in the society. Our participation in the Oman Sustainability Week events and awards underscores our commitment to supporting local and global efforts to achieve a better economic future within a sustainable environment.”
Oman Sustainability Week will be held at Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre and is scheduled to run for a week from March 13 - 17, 2022. It will include an exhibition, conference, intellectual leadership summit and field visits. This event will be a national platform that aims at highlighting Oman's commitment to achieving leadership in sustainability by developing innovative strategies in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will also involve national development entities to present Oman as a new example for sustainable development. The event brings together key policymakers, sustainability experts and industry leaders, to support the core message of sustainability as a national goal.
During the past period, be’ah has been able to demonstrate its diligent efforts to achieve sustainability by launching a number of programs, initiatives and projects related to the management of the waste sector in Oman. It has recently announced the closure of the first cell in Engineering Forum dump in Al Amerat, the first operation of its kind in the region, with the aim of controlling any future environmental pollution.
The company revealed its intention to use new machinery to reduce green trash and huge lumber into small components to help with management and usage. These components are used to make organic fertilizers, animal feed, and other things. This aids in creating financial benefits through the sale of cutting green trash, which is one of Oman2040's strategic objectives, and has led to the circular economy. The organization continued to offer the be'ah Academy's online environmental management accreditation program in the field of sustainability, which was created to improve young knowledge and motivate them to innovate.
