Reducing Waste in EG
Our employees in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea office initiated a program to reduce the use of plastic water bottles at our Malabo location. Previously, more than 340,000 water bottles (920 bottles per day) were used and disposed of each year at this onshore facility where employees and their families live and work. Ten potable water stations were installed and now serve as the primary source for water. While this contributed to an increase in water consumption onshore EG, water bottle consumption decreased 90 percent to 35,000 (95 per day) bottles per year. This effort reduces plastic waste by more than two tons.
