During Cycle for green campaign
As part of its staunch efforts to promote greener living, Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) launched on Tuesday, June 5 a pro-cycling campaign under the heading “Cycle for green,” which was organized in line with World Environmental Day celebrations around the globe.
ACT's CEO, Soren Hansen explained that this campaign comes as part of the company's integrated eco strategy, which makes environmental preservation an essential aspect of its core culture and operations.
"This campaign seeks to bolster the role we play in safeguarding our environment for future generations, in addition to raising the awareness of the local community in Aqaba on key environmental issues and challenges," commented Hansen. "In promoting greener lifestyle habits, such as replacing gasoline-dependent vehicles with bicycles in order to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, we help sow the seeds of a more conscious future for our communities. Our activities are organized with the notion of developing the collective sense of responsibility, encouraging people to adopt more sustainable habits and to set examples for others."
This campaign is part of an ongoing series of eco-friendly endeavors organized by ACT on a continual basis, the most recent of which was a cleanup dive targeting the shoreline and seabed of the diving area within the Aqaba Marine Park. The dive was organized in collaboration with the Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan, the Aqaba Diving Association and the marine park itself, with the primary objective of preserving the marine ecosystems within the target area, particularly its rich coral reefs.
