Airtel Partners Akosombo Paper Mill On Recycling

Airtel Ghana has partnered with a local recycling company,  Akosombo Paper Mill, a leading producer of tissue papers to collect and recycle waste paper generated by the telco.

Akosombo Paper Mill will collect the paper through one or more of its logistics partners and will recycle them into specialty paper production at its plant in Akosombo.Airtel will support this and utilise its contacts across the value chain in order to make its suppliers and vendors aware of this new opportunity.

“Thanks to the collaboration, this programme will offer end-users an opportunity to increase their overall environmental performance” said Michael Sarkodie, Managing Director of Akosombo Paper Mill. “Such programmes also reinforce the position of paper as a uniquely sustainable material for the country” he added.

The initiative falls under Airtel Ghana’s flagship internal corporate social responsibility project called Make a Difference Day (MADD), which encourages its employees to get involved in their local communities by identifying and supporting sustainable projects within their communities or lending a hand towards a charity project which they are passionate about.

Donald Gwira, Head of Corporate Communications, External Affairs and CSR said “We are committed to environmental sustainability and are proud that we are collaborating with our employees to make a positive impact.”
