In the furtherance of its social investment initiatives, the Dangote Cement Plc., Ibese Plant has taken steps towards contributing to climate change efforts.

The company made good on its belief that the care for the environment is the business of all by donating 25,000 pieces of 100kg capacity bags for management of agro-waste in communities across Nigeria.

Over the weekend, Plant Director, Azad Nawabuddin, while making the donation at Ibese, Ogun State, to Chief Executive Officer, Niels Deck Nig. Limited, Daniel Akpan, stated that the Plant’s commitment to providing a total of 100,000 pieces of the bags was to positively engage and empower communities and their youths by stimulating the use of agro-waste as alternative fuel in the year 2023.

According to him, the company was irrevocably committed to the use of alternative fuel to eliminate carbon emission by discarding fossil fuel, and the donation was part of the efforts.

In appreciation, Akpan said, “there is no doubt that this will greatly improve our waste management drive in the communities, create more employment and guarantee the sustainability of the livelihood of hundreds of people across the agro-waste management value chain”.

He described Niels Deck Nig. Limited as an advocate of decarbonisation, at the forefront of the implementation of global initiatives for sustainable environment in communities across Nigeria.
