Jaidah Group goes green with Al Suwaidi paper recycling contract

- PRESS RELEASE
Jaidah Group, one of the most influential and successful conglomerates in Qatar, has announced the signing of a one-year contract to have its waste paper recycled by local paper factory Al Suwaidi.
The next stop is Al Suwaidi's recycling plant in the industrial area, where Jaidah Group's waste paper joins that of other Al Suwaidi clients and is reformed as cardboard, ready to be used once more.
Al Suwaidi - a stand-alone Qatari company - started business in 2001 and now has over 200 employees involved in recycling the paper waste of a host of 'blue chip' companies in Qatar. This October, Jaidah Group will join the likes of the British, French and American Embassies, HSBC, QIB, Qatar University, Vodafone Qatar and Hamad Hospital in having its waste paper recycled.
The recycling process is tried, tested and - crucially - environmentally friendly. The collected papers are mixed with water to create a pulp, which is then drained and cleaned. Segregation comes next where plastic, pins and staples are removed, before the pulp is dyed and has resin added to it. It is then dried, shaped, and cut into the finished product. Al Suwaidi exports the recycled cardboard to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Jaidah Group's Chief Development Officer, Mr Mohamed Jaidah, commented, "The Group has an ongoing commitment to conduct its business in an as environmentally-friendly way as possible and so the upcoming contract with Al Suwaidi is an initiative that falls within our remit to be 'more green' as a company."
He said, "In signing this contract with Al Suwaidi paper factory we find ourselves in some very good company and it's really encouraging that so many reputable organisations in Qatar are making the effort to enhance their green credentials. This particular contract is just one of a raft of initiatives - both current and planned - that Jaidah Group is promoting. We only have the one planet, so it needs to be looked after!"
"It's also encouraging to note that Al Suwaidi is a local company that has thrived in its decade of existence and is doing its part not only for the environment, but also for the Qatari economy by exporting its recycled cardboard product to neighbouring countries," he concluded.
