Muscat – The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn) has launched a green movement in alignment with the national initiative to plant 10mn wild trees in Oman – led by the Environment Authority (EA) in various governorates.

Madayn, in cooperation with EA, commenced the ‘Green Industrial Cities’ initiative planting Samar, Sidr, Ghaf and Shua trees in Samail Industrial City.

The group plans to expand this mission gradually to all the industrial cities under its purview.

Eng Ibtisam al Shanfari, Environmental Affairs Specialist Manager, Head of Operations Office, Madayn, said the Green Industrial Cities initiative is a key component of Madayn’s ongoing efforts to promote healthier living and working environment.

“This initiative is pivotal in ensuring the sustainable preservation of the environment against air, soil, and water pollution, while addressing the challenges posed by climate change,” Ibtisam explained.

“Additionally, the initiative aims to raise environmental awareness and align with the sultanate’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, particularly within the industrial sector, through the advancement of clean energy technologies.”

These efforts focus on hazardous and non-hazardous waste management, disposal of liquid waste into marine environments, reduction of air and noise pollutant emissions, proper handling and usage of chemicals in storage, transportation, and loading.
