Students from the West Riffa Intermediate School for Girls were in Alba as part of an educational tour to learn about eco-friendly steps taken by the company in producing high-grade aluminium products for the local, regional and international markets.
Ali Jaffar, Ahmed Malik and Syed Mustafa from the landscaping division of Alba's HSE Department briefed the students on Alba's success in strengthening the green cover across the plant and in minimising pollution. The students were later given over 30 potted Washingtonia trees that they could plant in their schools and spread the environmental message to their fellow students.
Commenting on the visit of the students to the Alba plant, the company's HSE Manager, Abdulla Yaqoob Senan said, "How we manage the environment today will seriously impact the lives of the next generation, and hence, it was important to share with the students the steps taken by Alba in reducing pollution, increasing the green cover and promoting sustainability. We consider it a great privilege to welcome students to the Alba plant on education tours since we see these visits as an opportunity to invest in the future of Bahrain."
Earlier in the month, students from the West Riffa Secondary School for Girls and the Tubli Elementary School for Boys also made a visit to the Alba plant to know more about the production process of aluminium and career options in the industry.
The students from both schools were also given an extended tour around different facilities of the plant including a visit to the HRH Princess Sabeeka Oasis. They were briefed on Alba's product portfolio, environmental commitment, safety policies, adherence to quality, corporate social responsibility initiatives and contribution to Bahrain's economy.
