Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) has recently been recognised at the Emirates Recycling Awards, hosted by Emirates Environmental Group (EEG). RAKEZ emerged as the winner of the ‘Glass Collection Campaign’ and was also honoured as one of the top 10 champions in the ‘Can Collection Campaign’.
For several years, RAKEZ has been actively collaborating with EEG, participating in various waste recycling initiatives, and receiving recognition across multiple categories.
During this year’s bi-annual campaign, RAKEZ managed to collect an impressive 15,056 kilograms of glass bottles from Al Hamra and Al Ghail areas in just eight months. Alongside this, a noteworthy collection of 488 kilograms of aluminium cans were also gathered from four zones in RAKEZ – Al Hamra Industrial Zone, Al Hulaila Industrial Zone, Al Ghail Industrial Zone, and the business zone.
As a part of RAKEZ’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, all these collected materials were handed over to the EEG team for recycling, supporting the UAE’s robust efforts towards sustainability and further solidifying RAKEZ’s role as a key player in recycling and environmental conservation.
RAKEZ Group CEO Ramy Jallad said, “In the heart of every achievement lies a vision, and ours is deeply rooted in sustainability. We are thrilled to receive this recognition. The results of both campaigns are a testament to our unwavering commitment towards a greener economy and collective resolve to integrate sustainability into our everyday operations. The relentless efforts of our teams who collected glass and aluminium from various areas of our economic zone, contribute significantly towards helping the UAE advance its recycling efforts. We will continue to participate in and support initiatives that shape a more sustainable tomorrow for all.”
