Sustainability

Legal Frame Work

It is important to have a legislative framework that defines the collection, transportation, recovery and disposal of waste in order to build a sustainable integrated waste management ecosystem. These kind of legislations and directives ensure waste is recovered or disposed without endangering human health or the environment and permits, registration and regular inspections ensure that all adhere to the requirements. These legislations also ensure that appropriate steps are to be taken to prevent or reduce waste production, secondly recover waste by means of recycling or use waste as a source of energy.

be'ah is collaborating with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs (MECA) to review the current laws and regulations for waste management and is working towards establishing a new framework of regulations for waste management as per the Government’s vision for this sector.

Environmental Centre of Excellence

be'’ah believes that a robust waste management eco-system is intrinsically connected to protecting and preserving the environment. Committed to this belief, be'’ah aims to establish an Environmental Centre of Excellence and position it as an industry-leader in the region. The Center will be dedicated to promoting research and development, innovation and knowledge-sharing pertaining to the environment and waste management in particular. In order to encourage a culture of fostering new ideas in these areas, the Centre will also include a training institute. Working closely with colleges and universities, the Research Council of Oman, MECA and other partners who share the same vision, the institute will become a knowledge Centre to develop the right practices towards creating a sustainable future. The plans and strategy to develop the Environmental Centre of Excellence has begun and it is envisaged to set a new benchmark in the region.
