The Going Green Campaign:
As a kick off to the ‘Going Green Initiative’, MB Holding has started a programme within its
offices. 20 recycle bins have been placed at various strategic points within the Azaiba head
office premises. The waste paper is then collected and sent for recycling.
Mawarid has constructed a modern tailings storage facility and water recovery system. It is
the first of its kind in the sultanate and is fully compliant with the sultanate’s environmental
legislation and international best practices. Mawarid identified potential negative
environmental impact, developed mitigating measures and an environmental management
plan covering mines of Hatta and Shinas and the processing facility at Lasail. Operations took
into consideration, the surrounding environment, which included the fauna, flora, water
management, dust noise, air quality and impact on the community as well as the identification
and protection of archaeological and anthropological sites. Mawarid won the Green Innovation
Award for its Tailings dam facility in Liwa.
Mawarid Mining LLC re-designed & rebuilt an old Falaj (Traditional Water network) which has
benefited the farms and habitat in the area. The key objective was to provide a sustainable
water resource to the nearby villages and provide water to the farms that were on their last
legs. The prosperity in those farms is visible at this stage and locals are happy with the nice
recovery they have had on their farms.
In its efforts at going green, Mawarid has planted trees around the highway from the
roundabout all the way to the border gate with UAE. As part of its constant endeavour to
look after the surroundings where they operate, the objective has been to increase the
green landscape area in the Shinas region and also provide some possible shade for long
distance travelers. The green landscape is visible for all to see and the feedback from the local
population has been very encouraging.
