Manama, October 24, 2011
The Bahrain Polytechnic has announced that it had officially signed Zain Bahrain as the official telecommunications sponsor for the upcoming 1st Bahrain Waste Management Forum and Exhibition 2011, ‘Towards Zero Waste’.
The event will be held under the patronage of Dr Juma Al Ka’abi, Minister of Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning, and will take place on November 14 and 15, at the Gulf International Convention Centre, a statement from the institute said.
The signing ceremony took place at Zain Bahrain’s headquarters in Seef District, in the presence of Samya Hussain, corporate communications manager, Zain Bahrain, Eng Abdulrahim Fakhro, corporate and commercial development manager, Bahrain Polytechnic, chair-sponsorship and exhibition committee, and Sawsan Al Akkad, forum consultant, chair-publicity committee.
“Responsible environmental management is one of the core CSR objectives of Zain Bahrain and so we are very happy to be supporting this initiative which makes the public aware of how we can better manage our environment through efficient waste disposal. As many are aware, Zain Bahrain launched the National Mobile Phone & e-Waste Recycling Campaign earlier this year – the first of its kind in the Kingdom. We believe that educating the public is very important to the success of environmental sustainability and this Forum will help to achieve that goal in good measure,” Hussain said.
“We are glad to support the innovative green initiative that was launched by Zain Bahrain in March 2011 and we are excited to have joined forces Towards Zero Waste Bahrain,” Eng Fakhro said. – TradeArabia News Service
