Oman Oil and Orpic Group concludes “Waste Free Environment Campaign” in Qurayyat Back to News Page

Oman Oil and Orpic Group concluded its “Waste Free Environment” Campaign in the Willayate of Qurayyat, Muscat Governorate, which kicked off from 24th to 26th February in cooperation with government entities, the local community and school students.

Organised in collaboration and as part of the annual initiative by the Gulf Petrochemical and Chemical Association (GPCA), around 800 of the Group employees together with members of the local community including school students and local teams gathered for a cleaning initiative in Qurayyat and learned more about the importance of eco-efficient waste management and recycling concepts.

This year, Oman Oil and Orpic Group provided a unique opportunity for school students to present their environmental projects, inspire each other with their environmental work and become active environmental citizens. Volunteering is one of the important aspects of the Group focus in 2019, especially environmental-related programs to drive individuals and particularly school students towards realizing the need to recycle and learn more about the ways to better recycle environmental waste.

It is worth to mention that Oman Oil and Orpic Group has already conducted this initiative in Liwa, Suhar, Rustaq, Al Suwaiq and Al Seeb in the recent years with the participation of around 3000 volunteers from employees and the local community.
