01 January, 2016

Leading waste management provider averda has won an international tender issued by the Bahraini government under which it will deliver waste management and sustainable solutions.

A statement from the company said the solutions will be tailored to the kingdom’s specific needs.

The agreement was signed by Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf, Bahrain’s Minister of Works, Municipalities and Urban Planning, and Maysarah Sukkar, chairman of averda.

“This development is in alignment with Bahrain’s five-year environmental plan and will ensure that the kingdom benefits from the best solutions tailored to fit its specific needs, while offering the best return on investment. It is envisaged that a cleaner, greener and safer environment will help attract visitors, while giving Bahrain an advantage where foreign direct investment is concerned,” an averda statement said.

Operating for over 30 years, averda provides integrated waste management solutions to governments and businesses across three continents.

Sukkar said, “We are proud to add Bahrain to our list of partners in the GCC that already includes UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Qatar. We utilise the latest technology and innovation in customer service and are committed to engaging and giving value to the communities in which we work. As a socially responsible organisation, we have plans that include a programme to raise awareness of the importance of recycling, while at the same time offering employment opportunities to Bahrainis in a range of disciplines.

“We believe this partnership is a testimony to our international reputation as providers of cost effective, efficient and sustainable solutions, and we look forward to working closely with the government of Bahrain and contributing positively to their environmental plans.”
