Protecting 30 trees per year
Through efficient use of natural resources, support to environmental protection of Garadagh region is part of Holcim values. Since April of 2013, Holcim (Azerbaijan) employees launched re-cycle of the waste paper at the plant and the city office by involvement of a local company.
It should be noted that papermaking is more power-intensive in comparison with the glass or steel production. So, recycling one ton of paper can save 15 big trees or up to 3 tons of wood, 25 tons of water, 238 liters of oil and 4100 kWh (15 GJ) of electricity.
Holcim (Azerbaijan) is the leading company contributing to the country’s environmental protection.
