SUSTAINABILITY … OUR KEY TO THE FUTURE
The Oman’s Environmental National Strategy movement has moved from the fringe to becoming a central main stream issue. This framework towards Biodiversity and the conservation for natural life in agriculture, marine, terrestrial, and water resources is the second ‘wave’ that has begun to cause a shift in business thinking. Managing environmental aspects and impacts systematically is about being proactive rather than reactive towards environmental issues. This merge of ecological and economic factors into the practice of business management is critical to achieving Oman’s environmental conservation objectives, and for MB Holding to address these changes and ensure sustainability.
Our environmental policies and standards, regulatory and enforcement practices, monitoring, auditing and reporting provide the communities the assurance that the environment is being protected. MB Holding has established four environmental target areas which include waste minimization and management, pollution prevention, resource conservation, and energy efficiency. We aspire to taking initiative and in developing eco-friendly solutions to environmental issues that may arise from our products, operations and business activities. We are responsible for the environment in which we work in, and this dedication is demonstrated throughout our workforce, our customers and shareholders relationships. We continually seek to exceed compliance and to minimize resource consumption, and adverse environmental impact, limited only by technologically and economic viability.
