Social Security goes green
“We are proud of our commitment and have placed File 13 – a branded carton box for paper collection in offices in all our offices countrywide. This was the first step and we look forward to recycling our paper and cartons on a regular basis. The second step has been the recycling station which is now prominently displayed at our Head Office in Windhoek said Head of Corporate Communications Rino Muranda.
Muranda added that all staff of the Social Security Commission will be made aware of the benefits of recycling which include the facts that every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees while the energy saved from one glass bottle is enough to light a bulb for four hours. He added: “Recycling also benefits the air and water by creating a net reduction in ten major categories of air pollutants and eight major categories of water pollutants.”
“The Social Security Commission is a proud partner of Rent-a- Drum in Namibia and looks forward to contributing towards the reduction of volumes of mixed waste going into landfill sites and the minimization of exploitation of valuable natural resources in the manufacturing processes.”
