Nokia and Emirates Environmental Group renew cooperation on mobile phone recycling
Nokia and the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) announced the renewal of their collaboration for Nokia’s ‘Take Back’ mobile phone recycling initiative. Taking the program to the next level, both companies will spearhead environmental awareness campaigns in schools and universities across the country.
“For the past two years, we have been successful in instilling a sense of environmental and social responsibility within the corporate sector. This year, we will ramp up the campaign in our member schools and universities to engage our students’ active participation in green environmental initiatives,” he added
There will be seminars and short video presentations at schools throughout the year where brochures, posters and fliers both in English and Arabic will also be made available to educate the students on the benefits of recycling and to inform them of the entire recycling process. “With this collaboration we aim to contribute to the long-term creation of a recycling society. This initiative will offer a channel for secure, protected and responsible mobile phone recycling. In addition, the initiative will educate the next generation on the importance of commitment to environmental actions every day,” said Ulrike Vott, Nokia’s regional sustainability manager.
The EEG will have recycling points for mobile phones whole year round, while Nokia will be responsible for the environmentally correct treatment of all collected mobile devices, chargers, batteries and accessories according to Nokia’s highest international environmental standards.
