Batelco Launches Environmental Awareness Programme to Reduce Single-use Plastic Products

July 28, 2019

Batelco launched an environmental awareness programme for its employees at its Hamala Headquarters, supporting the global environmental awareness trends and the national initiative launched by the Supreme Council for Environment to reduce the use of single-use plastic products across Bahrain.

To kick-start the programme, Batelco’s CSR Committee ‘Nasna’ collaborated with Clean Up Bahrain who presented a lecture for Batelco’s employees about the harmful effects of plastic on the environment, particularly on our seas and oceans. The event encouraged the employees to adopt a greener lifestyle in order to protect the environment from pollution, ensuring its sustainability for future generations.

The informative session was followed by the distribution of reusable bags to all employees, to encourage them to stop using single-use plastic bags for shopping.

Batelco strives to support environmental initiatives that contribute towards maintaining sustainability, through its Nasna CSR programme. This also reflects the company’s commitment towards community service.
