The topic is however not new to us, and we are already proud of several success stories, such as a solar powered office in Mali, tree planting in Zambia, health days at our plants and support to several schools. Not forgetting the active participation of our Ghanaian plant, CLP, to the Carmeuse sustainability award (one victory for our water recycling project and several podium places).
Nevertheless, we felt the time had come to take it a step further. After careful review, and aligned with the Carmeuse Vision 2030, Carmeuse Overseas decided to take actions linked to the following 4 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) which we believe we can impact the most.
For each SDG, we have selected several actions to be implemented at each of our African operations during 2021.
Good Health & Well-Being
Carmeuse Overseas will plant trees, organize educational sessions, and record the safety figures in view of improvement.
Carmeuse Overseas will expand the support given to our neighboring schools and include new schools.
Affordable & Clean Energy
Carmeuse Overseas will do a mapping of its resource flows in view of optimization.
