Averda secures ESG status upgrade from Sustainalytics
Averda, the leading end-to-end waste management and recycling company in emerging markets, announces that its ESG status has been upgraded by Sustaina.
Averda was awarded the long-term waste management contract by the city of Casablanca earlier this year.
Averda is bringing international expertise and new technology fleet, systems and equipment to the Moroccan market to ensure the city’s waste management needs are met as efficiently as possible.
From its strong roots and beginnings in Lebanon where it started operations in 1993, Averda has become an acknowledged international supplier of waste management services currently serving 14 cities in three continents. Averda aims to be present in 50 cities across five continents within 10 years.
Mr Maysarah Khalil Sukkar, Averda Chairman, said: “ Our debut on the African continent where we currently clean six cities, gave us the desire and confidence to play a positive role in improving the environment in other African cities as well. Our solutions are adapted to our host market and make good use of technology as do our tried and tested community engagement initiatives. We are mindful of the need for our bespoke waste management services wherever we operate and are keen to clean more cities in Africa, a market we are confident to serve with as much care and dedication as we do our other emerging cities. Averda is prepared and well placed to provide African countries with innovative waste management solutions to fulfill national vision of sustainability.”
