KUWAIT: Within the framework of supporting the communities that we are part of, Ahli United Bank has signed a cooperation agreement with Omniya Project to recycle plastic waste used at the Bank’s Head Office and in the surrounding areas.

This initiative includes the distribution of recycle bins in the Ahli United Bank’s head office and surrounding areas, to be used to collect the used water plastic bottles or any other plastic containers. The containers, which carry the world-standard code PET1, will then be delivered to the Omniya Project for further collection and recycling.

Commenting on this initiative, Tareq Muhmood, Senior Deputy CEO – Banking Group stated: “Our strong desire to cooperate with Omniya was prompted by our commitment to spreading the culture of recycling, and to educate and increase the awareness amongst our employees and customers.

As a company, and as individuals, we have a responsibility to support the preservation of our environment.

Muhmood explained that the Bank’s cooperation with Omnia Project, which is managed and operated by a group of young Kuwaitis led by Sanaa Al-Qamlas and Farah Shabaan, reflects our appreciation of the initiatives launched by these young ambitious Kuwaitis who accepted an important challenge of preserving and maintaining the environment to achieve sustainable development and enhance the industry in Kuwait.

He added that “Ahli United Bankalways seeks to make a difference in society and the environment through unique environment-related initiatives. With this in mind, our efforts will continue in order to increase awareness and enrich the environment culture.”
