Accra Brewery Limited has commemorated World Environment Day with a call on Ghanaians to desist from practices that degrade the environment.
The company used the occasion to donate GH¢10,000 worth of sanitation equipment to the Adabraka community, before joining some residents to clean up portions of the Graphic Road in Accra.
The Country Director of Accra Brewery Limited, Phillip Redman, reaffirmed the ABL’s commitment to uphold and improve positive environmental practices within its operational enclave.
“This occasion has come at a time the media has taken the issue of environmental preservation seriously. As a community and environmentally friendly company committed to promoting good environmental practices, we cannot help but commend the media for making environmental related issues a priority,” he observed.
“As a member of ABINBev, the world’s largest brewing company, the World Environmental Day presents us with a unique opportunity not only to demonstrate our dedication and support for positive environmental practices but most importantly to educate and inspire our employees, suppliers and customers on how to engage in productive and environmentally friendly practices, both at the workplace and at home,” he further asserted.
Mr Redman applauded employees for taking part in the clean-up exercise, which also coincided with the National Sanitation Day.
He stated that the occasion of the World Environment Day was consistent with one of their core social interventions under the ‘Bringing People together for a Better World’ agenda hinged on three main themes: ‘A Cleaner World, A Healthier World and A Growing World.’
“Indeed, positive environmental practices are embedded throughout our business and across our value chain, enabling growth that benefits us and our communities and creating opportunities for all,” he further asserted.
The Adabraka Atukpai Mantse, Nii Tetteh Adjabeng II, praised ABL, “for being very good to our community over the years. We are glad to be a host. This particular exercise has come at a good time when the rains have set in and with our peculiar circumstances during this season when we mostly experience some flooding, we are happy we joined ABL to clean this portion of the Graphic Road. We are looking forward to the upcoming free health screening exercise.”
