In its commitment to environmental sustainability, the Nigerian Breweries made a donation of 5 units of 16”X8”and 53” deep waste bins to the Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA). The donation was made by Abbey Ajayi, Brewery Manager, Aba Plant, to a delegation of the state government. Mr Ajayi said “We acknowledge that protecting the environment is a top priority of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu. This informed our commitment to ensuring that the state succeeds in maintaining a green and clean environment. This commitment is not only evident in donations like this, but in the way our business has prioritized sustainability in our operations”. He stated that NB will remain committed (through its Brew to a Better World Sustainability agenda) to supporting the state government by investing in well-organized waste disposal and recycling activities, functional wastewater treatment plants as well as responsible water resource management.

Receiving the bins, the General Manager, ASEPA, Hon. Eze Okwulehie, praised Nigerian Breweries Plc’s consistency in maintaining global standards for environmental management. He noted that his agency’s inspection of Nigerian Breweries’ operations conducted a few weeks ago had confirmed the company’s adherence to very high compliance and environmental standards in all its processes and operations. Also speaking at the event, the Secretary to the State Government, Abia State, Barrister Chris Ezem, thanked Nigerian Breweries for the donation, which he described as another testament of the company’s determination to remain a strategic partner to the state government, recalling the company’s past financial support to the state government during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as its consistent contribution to the state’s Internally Generated Revenue.
