Transcorp Poised To Promote Waste Management, Recycling In Schools

Transnational Corporation Plc (Transcorp) has launched an initiative aimed at sensitising selected schools in the country on proper waste management and recycling, to foster a greener and more sustainable future for Nigeria.

The launch which took place recently saw the participation of employees from various subsidiaries of Transcorp companies in Nigeria. Transcorp Hotels Plc, Transcorp Power Limited, Transafam Power Limited, and Transcorp Energy Limited.

The Transcorp team visited two schools across the different states they operate in, engaging with students and educators to raise awareness about the importance of responsible waste disposal and recycling.

Speaking at the occasion, President/GCEO of Transcorp Group, Dr. Owen Omogiafo OON expressed immense pride in the Group’s commitment to environmental stewardship.

She stated, “At Transcorp, being the Africapalists that we are, we firmly believe that sustainable development is a shared responsibility. Actively engaging with local schools and investing in educational initiatives, allows us to create a lasting positive impact on our environment and inspire the younger generation to adopt eco-friendly practices.”
She also said that the project was aligned with the company’s Africapitalism philosophy, which is embedded in its vision to power positive change within the environment the group operates.

“In executing this environmental initiative, the company has chosen to work through the leaders of tomorrow, by partnering with secondary schools, to instill a sense of environmental responsibility among the young generation, inspiring them to become champions of sustainable practices,” She said.

Omogiafo also stated that to reinforce the importance of recycling, Transcorp Group is partnering with Recycle Points, one of Nigeria’s foremost waste recycling and social benefit companies and an alumnus of the Tony Elumelu Foundation.

“Transcorp also donated segmented dustbins to each school, designed to facilitate and streamline the recycling process. These specialised dustbins will empower the students and staff to segregate different types of waste effectively, encouraging a culture of recycling within the school premises. They have also collaborated with a strategic partner who will ensure that the recyclables are collected, and proceeds used to train out-of-school children,” she concluded.
