Sustainability Award

The Beckers Sustainability Award in the category Operations with impact was assigned to Linto Varghese, Santosh Paudel, Najeeb Pareethu, Jagathish Gnanaprakasam, Jen Joy and Alagu Karthik for their strategic initiative to eliminate, reduce and repurpose waste.

Beckers UAE formed a strategic waste management team in 2019 to eliminate, reduce and repurpose waste at our site in Ras Al Khaimah. Among the activities carried out in 2020 was the disposal of hazardous waste through Gulf Cement; the repurposing and reuse of drums; the reduction of tissue paper waste; the reuse of cleaning solvents for washing; and the reuse, recycling and reduction of pallet usage. The jury liked the approach taken by the local team in RAK because they addressed waste management strategically and included local partners in different ways to repurpose waste that cannot be eliminated.

“We are immensely thankful for winning this award. We are very pleased and it is hard to convey that through words. This gives us more self-belief and even increases the dedication towards our work.”

Najeeb Pareethu – Operations Manager, Middle East

Reasoning of the jury

The team was awarded for their well-planned initiative to eliminate, reduce and repurpose waste. The team at Beckers UAE addressed waste management strategically, forged alliances with local partners to move towards circular processes and thus contributed to our goal of having 75% repurposed waste by 2030. Their team work, the close examination of every waste source and the process were exemplary.
