Reduction of Paper Consumption
Efforts to transform as much printed work to become digital was achieved through programs and automated systems. Printing was still inevitable; therefore, printing stations are now changed to be centralized and individual printers in offices were removed. Moreover, all printing is required to be done double sided. As a result, after calculations we were able to reduce our consumption of printing paper down to a 47.5% in 2023.

Reduction of Electrical Consumption
In efforts to reduce electrical consumption, lights with motion sensors were installed in open spaces around the head offices and bathrooms to eliminate any light being left turned on with no use. In addition, LED light bulbs were installed instead of halogen and traditional bulbs that were existing. Therefore, significant reduction in the consumption of electricity was observed in 2023 after the changes implemented and so it continues.

To reduce waste disposal in the head offices, single centralized recycle bins with waste separation was installed to support employees in being able to separate wastes that can be recycled and reused. Efforts are being done to transform those wastes to be reused by identified producers around Egypt who can reproduce them into usable products.
