TotalEnergies Marketing Middle East, RECAPP by Veolia join forces for major recycling initiative in Dubai
TotalEnergies Marketing Middle East (TEMME) and RECAPP by Veolia have signed a partnership agreement on June 12th, 2023, for a sustainability initiative to rollout innovative recycling solutions implemented across TEMME service centers across UAE.
As part of the partnership, RECAPP will help TotalEnergies optimize its end-of-life product recovery and recycling processes, enabling the company to contribute positively to the environment. The initiative also aligns with TotalEnergies’ efforts to build awareness and promote eco-friendly practices.
Among other things, the initiative will involve RECAPP deploying recycling boxes and collecting end-of-life lubricant containers across TotalEnergies' five partnered service workshops.
While supporting broader sustainable efforts in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the launch of the initiative coincides with a month that observed some of the biggest days related to environmental protection. It includes World Ocean Day and World Environment Day, which marked its 50th anniversary this year.
The initiative contributes to global efforts on transformation toward circularity and closing the plastic loop. In particular, it contributes to UAE's efforts to curb plastic pollution and its recent initiatives, including the launch of an integrated program to monitor plastic waste in the marine and coastal environment of the country and the upcoming nationwide ban on single-use plastic bags starting January next year.
