The firm reiterates its commitment to environmental sustainability

Lekki Port has reiterated its commitment to ensuring environmental sustainability.

In celebration of World Environment Day 2022, it teamed up with African Marine Environment Sustainability Initiative (AFMESI) to carry out a clean-up exercise of the beach and coastal environment of Magbon Segun and Oke Segun communities in the Ibeju Lekki area of Lagos State.

The clean-up initiative was put together as part of Lekki Port’s efforts to ensure environmental justice.

Its Managing Director, Du Ruogang, said the initiative was the company’s contribution to taking care of the earth and its natural resources.

He said: “Lekki Port is continually committed to the environment by upscaling its investment in the sustainability of its host communities through the creation of better household waste management and awareness of the impact of waste on humans and the environment.

“We thank our Baales and the host communities for allowing us to carry out this clean-up event in their space and we will surely ensure that it is not a one-off occasion.

“We are all enjoined to celebrate, protect and restore our planet starting with our immediate environment.”

Founder/President of AFMESI, Dr. Felicia Mogo, said the initiative was borne out of the need to curb waste dumping with intervention programs to support the communities, such as the provision of waste bins and tools while creating awareness of the impact of waste.
