Dangote Cement Contributes 25,000 Waste Management Bags

Dangote Cement Plc’s Ibese Plant has donated 25,000 100kg capacity bags for agro-waste management in communities across the country.

This, it stated, would take its Social Investment to the next level with initiatives aimed at restoring the ecosystem.

Mr. Azad Nawabuddin, Plant Director, made the presentation to Mr. Daniel Akpan, Chief Executive Officer of Niels Deck Nigeria Limited, over the weekend in Ibese.

Nawabuddin revealed that the Plant has committed to providing 100,000 bags to positively engage and empower communities and their youths by encouraging the use of agro-waste as an alternative fuel by 2023.

He explained that the company was unwaveringly committed to using alternative fuels to eliminate carbon emissions by eliminating the use of fossil fuels and that the donation was part of that effort.

While appreciating the management of Dangote Cement Plc for the gesture, Akpan said: “there is no doubt that this will greatly improve our waste management drive in the communities, create more employment and guarantee the sustainability of the livelihood of hundreds of people across the agro-waste management value chain.”

As an advocate of decarbonization, Niels Deck Nigeria Limited has been at the forefront of the implementation of global initiatives for a sustainable environment in communities across Nigeria.

The partnership with Ibese Plant for partial substitution of fossil fuel has not only improved agro-waste management across Nigeria but also helped to economically empower numerous youths engaged in sourcing, packing, and bagging the wastes.

The effort has also helped to reduce the carbon footprint of the Plant and is a demonstration of DCP’s strong commitment to activities geared towards the reduction of global warming in line with international best practices.
