KEEPING AFRICA GREEN, CLEAN AND HEALTHY

The situation of environmental sanitation in African countries over the years has not been a healthy one. Waste Management, a major component of Environmental Sanitation, has, over the years to date, been a major headache of successive central government and local authorities. While the growth of towns and cities have resulted in increased population coupled with increased socio-economic activities, there has not been a commensurate increase in essential logistics for effective and efficient waste management services delivery.

Studies shows that all over the world, about 2.6 billion are living without access to improve sanitation services whiles at least 40% of Africans do not have access to basic sanitation and hygiene services.For instance Malaria, which affects 3.5 million people yearly, continues to be the leading killer of children in Africa.

It is in these aspects of waste management and environmental sanitation that Zoomlion Ghana Limited is working with the requisite expertise, technical and managerial competences as well as resources to support government, and local authorities to clean up cities and towns, improve the environmental quality and consequently give tourism, both internal and external a huge boost. In short Zoomlion Ghana Limited is in the business of promoting a green, clean and healthy Africa and beyond.
