ZEMA Commends Zambian Breweries

Zambia Environment Management Agency (ZEMA) Operations Director Maxwell Nkoya has commended Zambian Breweries for initiating Manja Pamodzi and creating empowerment in communities.

“Under the provision dealing with waste, we find the principle for extended producer responsibility where a company such as Zambian Breweries needs to dedicate resources either financially or otherwise to the product post consumption,” he commented on the legal requirements within which Zambian Breweries is compliant through Manja Pamodzi.

ZEMA Head of Operations Maxwell Nkoya explains the agency’s role in protecting the environment and pollution control at the Manja Pamodzi Multi – Stakeholder Meeting held on November 17, 2017 at the Ridgeway Southern Sun Hotel.

He added that the company also has the mandate to create mechanisms to collect and recycle the waste and hence avoid littering of the streets and the environment altogether.

Through its co – joint efforts with the Millennium Challenge Account – Zambia (MCA – Z) on the Manja Pamodzi project, Zambian Breweries has ensured to abide by legal requirements where the producer eventually helps to take out of the streets post – consumer waste material and create a value chain where they are turned into useful items.

“We understand that we are part of the problem,” stated Zambian Breweries Country Director Jose Moran at the Multi-Stakeholder meeting held on November 17, 2017 at the Ridgeway Southern Sun Hotel, “that is why we have invested into Manja Pamodzi’s value chain,” he added.
