Ayla Oasis Development Company (AODC), one of the biggest companies in the field of tourism development and real-estate, and a provider of a variety of services in the city of Aqaba, announced it has recently proceeded to sort its office waste. The process is executed through the joint effort of its Aqaba office employees in sorting specific kinds of waste such as; paper, plastic, glass, and food. This initiative aims to fulfill Ayla’s responsibility towards the environment, and instill environmentally friendly practices at the company and amongst its employees.
These practices, carried out by the company’s employees, are the first step towards a more advanced recycling plan that will involve specialized organizations at later stages, and contribute to a wider range of recycled products. Commenting on the occasion, Director of Operations at Ayla Oasis Development Company, Mr. Chris White emphasized on the importance of raising awareness about waste management in the workplace, as well as the local community as a whole.
Eng. Sahl Dudin, Managing Director of Ayla Oasis Development Company said: “At Ayla Oasis, we continuously endeavor to promote eco-friendly practices, and create awareness about the importance of recycling amongst our employees and the local community. In order for us to achieve that and more, we need the full support and dedication of all entities involved” he continued. He carried on highlighting AODC’s continuous efforts toward driving environmental awareness and utilizing sustainable green practices within its community, setting a great example for other developers in the city of Aqaba.
Eng. Dudin added: “Recycling has proven to be a great source of income and sustainability in many countries across the world. Needless to say, it also leads to preserving the environment and creating a better future for our planet. This falls in line with the strategy we adopted at Ayla, in which our entire community was built around eco-friendly practices, where environmental engineering was applied in several facilities”.
“As a result, Ayla Oasis now prides itself with 750 sqm of artificial lagoons filled with natural marine life, creating 17 kilometers of new waterfronts. Adding to that, the project recently launched a solar power system, producing six megawatts. The power generated will be used to operate the seawater pumping station that feeds the chain of lagoons, as well as a number of services, such as lighting the facilities, and watering the golf course, which is classified as one of the leading eco-friendly courses in the World.” he ended.
