The collection of recyclables increased by 44% in six months
Dubai, UAE - Bee’ah, the Middle East’s leading and award-winning environmental management company, signed a contract with FedEx UAE. Bee’ah has collected several tonnes of waste and recyclables in six months from the multinational courier delivery service provider. FedEx, an environmentally conscious corporation, awarded Bee’ah the contract for three of its facilities due to their expertise in providing sustainable solutions and waste management strategies in the United Arab Emirates. This contract was signed by Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah, and David Ross, FedEx’s Regional President in MEISA.
Packaging companies like Fed Ex are well-known in the industry for the relatively large amount of waste they produce in a short timeframe. All indicators reveal that Bee’ah has helped FedEx improve and maintain waste collection and recyclable efficiency within their facilities. The collection of Fed Ex’s waste and recyclables increased by 44% in the past six months. The scope of Bee’ah’s contract included state-of-the-art waste collection, transportation and recovery.
Fahad Shehail, Chief Development Officer, Bee’ah, said: “Providing the highest level of waste collection and recycling services is central to our expansion strategy. The expertise of our operations around the UAE has made Bee’ah the ideal partner for international companies seeking a profitable and sustainable future. We have improved the environmental standards of FedEx’s operations through the implementation of recycling and integrated waste management systems and integrated services. These green practices set a great example for the entire packaging industry within the UAE.”
Bee’ah has provided general waste collection services for three FedEx facilities located in the UAE, including: FedEx Metroplex, next to Dubai Airport Terminal 2; FedEx Al Quoz Industrial Area 1; and FedEx Garhoud, Al Garhoud. As a company with massive courier delivery operations, FedEx requires considerable storage of recyclable waste such as plastics and cardboard.
Bee’ah has accelerated the use of environmentally preferable practices within corporations to reduce the environmental impact of traditional waste disposal processes. Through collaboration, Bee'ah aims to implement the best international standards for waste management operations as well as support the UAE economy with sustainable solutions.
Bee’ah, headquartered in the Emirate of Sharjah, is an integrated environmental and waste management company, founded in 2007, through an Emiri decree by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, as a public private partnership (PPP) with the Sharjah City Municipality.
Bee’ah touches and transforms thoughts, attitudes and behaviours in individuals, communities, businesses and cities enabling them to lead positive sustainable growth by providing the infrastructure, tools and support that they require to achieve their environmental goals.
Bee’ah, through adopting international best practices, aims to enhance the environment and achieve added-value commercial ventures, while upholding its commitments to stakeholders.
