Environmental and Circular Economy Forum: Brimming with innovation and bright ideas
Thousands come together in Abqaiq to share environment-related knowledge and experiences.
Aramco has ambitions and targets to reduce carbon emissions associated with our operations. In line with this, the Southern Area Community Services Department, the Abqaiq Plant, and the Environmental Protection Department recently hosted the Environmental and Circular Economy Forum at Al Murjan Hall in Abqaiq.
More than 2,500 employees from different company organizations attended the event — in-person and virtually — and benefitted from presentations by subject matter experts from various economic sectors and government entities. The forum enabled the sharing of environment-related knowledge and experiences, best-in-class ideas, technology, new practices, and more.
Over three days, the event honed in on green technology and biodiversity, environmental protection and sustainability, and waste management and the circular economy. Innovative environmental conservation concepts engaged participants in interactive discussions, and display booths showcased new environmental protection projects in Aramco communities and the Kingdom as a whole.
Khaled A. Al-Buraik, senior vice president Southern Area Oil Operations inaugurated the forum, along with vice president of Community Services Operations, Mohammad A. Al Sultan, and Southern Area Community Services director, Mohammed A. Al-Hajri.
Aramco’s executive management and invitees received a tour of the forum and guests – including those visiting from schools — went home with educational material, plants, and recycling ideas.
