A.P. Moller – Maersk, an integrated container logistics company, joins “SDGs in action on the Nile” event, which was organized by the Embassy of Denmark in Egypt with a local start-up, Greenish. Greenish with the support of the Egyptian Ministry of Environment organized the first Nile clean-up event for Danish companies putting the CSR (corporate social responsibility) and the UN-sustainable development goals (SDGs) in action. Plastic pollution is a major problem in the Worlds rivers from where 90% of the pollution originates. The Nile is amongst 10 of the most polluting rivers in the World. A.P. Moller – Maersk defines corporate sustainability as working systematically to reduce negative and enhance positive impacts on people, society, and the environment. Climate change remains the key environmental issue across the Maersk Group. The “SDGs in action on the Nile” event took place on June 12th. Attendees were welcomed by Shady Khalil, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Greenish, and Mr Tomas Anker Christensen, Danish Ambassador to Egypt. From Maersk, 30 volunteers gathered in the early afternoon at the banks of the Nile and took action in reducing plastic waste in the river. Altogether, the event successfully collected a total of 1,5 tons of waste. Afterwards there were some workshops that focused on recycling and how to better utilize waste, this including biodegradable plastic and regular plastic. The event showed a new understanding on how to become more environmentally friendly and how to use more eco-friendly alternatives.
