Barnabas Gwarisa, Probe’s Environmental and Quality Controller, outlines the company’s new venture into sustainable recycling practice. He says that environmental protection has been a leading topic for governments globally and the principle of cradle-to-grave practices has been emphasised by various legislation such as the Waste Act, the Kyoto protocol and other relevant legislation to create sustainable economies. As stewards of the earth, we all have a social and environmental responsibility to leave a better pace than when we inherited from our forefathers. Probe has decided to break the mould regarding environmental responsibility.
