Armor Office Printing has been awarded the Responsible consumption and production trophy by “Les Trophées Défis RSE Maroc 2019” on behalf of the Armor Industries factory located near Casablanca.
Armor announced the news that during the award ceremony held on 25 October at RABAT in Morocco, Armor Office Printing was awarded the Responsible consumption and production trophy by “Les Trophées Défis RSE Maroc 2019”.
“This award recognises our entire facility at Bir Jdid, near Casablanca. It is a small town with less than 20,000 inhabitants and high unemployment, where we are the leading employer. Our strategy is based on a reinforced contribution to sustainable development: we are committed to developing social ties around our company and to addressing the social issues affecting the region,” explained Mohamed Alfarze, CEO of Armor Industries Maroc.
The CSR Challenges Trophies reward companies for their corporate social responsibility policies or best practices. Winning the CSR Challenges Trophy in the Responsible Consumption and Production category reaffirms Armor’s commitment to the circular economy and highlights its expertise in cartridge remanufacturing. It is a trophy that rewards Armor’s commitment to solidarity, the announcement stated.
Today, thanks to the work of the Armor Office Printing teams and through Armor Industries Maroc, over 2,000 tonnes of cartridges have been saved from landfill, meaning that over 1,500,000 cartridges have been recycled rather than destroyed.
“Armor is an international group, and our development in Morocco is actively contributing to the growth and influence of the circular economy. This is a key endeavour for Armor as a whole, which is dedicated to spearheading the emergence of a responsible, committed industry and has proven as such,” concluded Gerwald Van der Gijp, Director of Armor Office Printing.
