Kuwait – February 22 – 2014 — EQUATE Petrochemical Company, Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association (GPCA) and Environment Public Authority (EPA) organized a beach clean-up day as part of the “Waste Free Environment” campaign launched by GPCA.
With the participation of over 500 persons, EQUATE employees cooperated with students from a number of Kuwaiti schools, teachers and EPA staff in cleaning up a part of Kuwait’s beachfront at Anjafa Beach.
The region wide campaign was proposed by GPCA for its member companies, grouping EQUATE (a founding member of GPCA) and several others, to organize such an community awareness campaign within their respective communities through public engagement and participation. Through this initiative and cooperation with GPCA and EPA, EQUATE extends its commitment and collaboration with relevant stakeholders, to reflect its tagline “Partners in Success.”
