Namibian Cement Company wins environmental award

20 May 2015

Namibia’s Ohorongo Cement has been recognised by the Environmental Investment Fund (EIF) with the Environmental Excellence Among Industries Award.

EIF works in close cooperation with the Ministry of Environment & Tourism and the Sustainable Development Advisory Council.

The Awards are aimed at recognising and celebrating companies, local authorities and individuals who have promoted and demonstrated sustainable and responsible development in Namibia.

The Category of Environmental Excellence among Industries seeks to reward the application of innovative technologies and approaches, which minimise operational impacts on the environment.

Energy and water efficiency are key focus areas, as well as environmentally friendly approaches to waste management.

Ohorongo Cement’s CO2 emissions are below the European standard.
Ohorongo is planning to utilise the award to plough back into the small community of Otavi.
