Dangote Cement launches sustainability week
Dangote Cement Ghana Limited has launched its sustainability week celebration in Accra.
Christened “Our Communities, Our passion”, it is about doing business in a sustainable manner and impacting societies positively beyond just selling cement.
The sustainability week is an annual celebration across the Dangote Group worldwide.
Activities lined up for the celebration are health talk on depression and stress, dental and eye screening, donation of cement, clean up exercise and school visitation.
Speaking at the launch of the celebration, the Managing Director of Dangote Cement Ghana Limited, Mr Brice Hueoto, said that the sustainability week is about doing business in a sustainable manner and impacting societies positively beyond just selling cement.
“Dangote is certainly not here for a week, a day or a year, we want to do business in a sustainable way.”
“Beyond that, we want to impact our communities positively, give back to our communities beyond just selling cement,” he noted.
According to him, Dangote Cement intends to be the biggest and leading cement producing group in Africa.
He added that for the group, this year is about employees doing more volunteerism in communities and beyond that, the group wants to bring to its communities, innovation and smart ways of doing business.
The Human Resource Manager, Mr Akature Ania, urged staff of Dangote Cement to participate fully in the sustainability program and be more safety-conscious.
