As part of the UN International Day zero-waste “, associations Zero Waste Skhirat And Al Mountada Li Tanmia initiated with CWP Global a day of beach cleaning on the coast of Rabat closed by a common ftour, in the form of brainstorming “how to reuse the plastic waste collected?”.
The International Day of Zero Waste launched by the UN, aims to promote sustainable consumption and production patterns, support societal change towards circularity and raise awareness of how zero waste initiatives contribute to the advancement of the Agenda sustainable development by 2030.
In a statement, the aforementioned players point out that the waste sector contributes significantly to the triple global crisis of climate change, loss of biodiversity and degradation of nature, and pollution. It is estimated that humanity produces 2.24 billion tons of solid urban waste every year, of which only 55% is managed in controlled facilities.
Each year, around 931 million tonnes of food are lost or wasted and up to 14 million tonnes of plastic waste enter aquatic ecosystems, the same source points out.
Note that CWP global is an American company that developed the world’s first green hydrogen mega project in Australia (AREH – 26 gigawatts), and since then has launched nearly a dozen mega projects that are in the pipeline through the world.
Morocco is no exception. The group has expressed its desire to launch several projects in the south of the Kingdom and is preparing to respond through the government’s offer on hydrogen which will soon be communicated by the State.
” CWP Global invites environmental associations from the southern regions of the Kingdom to Guelmim, Laayoune and Dakhla to contact us to study together the projects that could be launched (…) The greenhouse gas concentration threshold which corresponds to 1 .5 degrees is 350 parts per million (ppm). It was crossed in the mid-1980s. We are now around 417ppm and each year we take around 2.6ppm more,” said the CSR manager of the Moroccan subsidiary of CWP global, Hajar Bennar quoted in the press release.
And to ensure: “Creating green energy and pedagogically boosting the protection of our environment is our only chance of being able to safeguard our common future on this planet, we would like to work with associations that are fully aware of this, such as Zero Waste and Al Mountada Li Tanmia.“.
