ENOC Group, announced on Monday that it has banned single-use plastics across its operations as well as in its head office.

Single-use plastics that have been banned include straws, cups, single-use water bottles, plastic shopping bags, plastic bottle caps, food wrappers, plastic lids, stirrers, and foam takeaway containers. 

As alternatives to single-use plastic items used in its operations, ENOC has switched over to more sustainable items such as paper bags, wooden straws, water dispensers with reusable bottles and recyclable lids.

In March 2020, the Group announced that it will begin a phase-out of single-use plastics and today it has achieved a 100 percent single-use plastic free environment across its business units and corporate departments. Since 2020, ENOC has prevented approximately 14 tonnes of plastic waste from entering landfills and saved roughly AED 400,000 due to the elimination of single-use plastics.
