Water

Collecting, recycling and delayed drainage of rainwater is the policy line on the management and reuse of rainwater. The sites have as many retention basins for rainwater as possible. This rainwater is used for maintenance (cleaning) of floors and buildings, for the initial cleaning in the crate washing bay, as a reserve for the fire-extinguishing systems and so on. For the new building projects, we also take into consideration the potential that the wadis may have for the infiltration of rainwater to deeper aquifers. These wadis are also designed to blend in with the green areas that we create around the buildings and in the grounds.

Water conservation is also a concern: reporting leaks, maintaining pipelines and taps are points for attention when it comes to ensuring that we handle water as a resource more efficiently.
