Beach clean-up and Environmental Awareness Session in Al Maddeyah village

  • To mark the World Environment Day on June 5th, 2021, Energean Egypt, in collaboration with its Joint Venture partner, Abu Qir Petroleum, and the organization “GoClean”, performed a beach clean-up, along with an educational campaign in Al Maddeyah village, the site of Energean’s onshore operations.
  • This included a presentation on the collection and disposal of beach waste. The audience was members of the local community and several key stakeholders, including law enforcement officers.
  • The day also featured a number of social and sporting events, including football and volleyball, for which Energean supplied and installed nets, recreational furniture, and other equipment, so that the local community could enjoy the use of its restored beach.
  • The initiative was organized by the Energean Egypt Corporate Social Responsibility team and aimed to:
  • Increase public awareness on beach waste and the negative impact on the environment.

Our Responsibility”.
