Dear Valued Stakeholder,
The environment and waste management industry has
become a global concern which society engages in and
explores new and on-going initiatives. From recycling
to renewable energy sources, countries around the
world are transforming their long-term goals to search
for and recruit innovative projects to sustain their
environmental future.

Four years ago, Beeah started as a waste management


company, with three employees, to simply manage
the waste generated by our city of Sharjah. Today, we
have grown to an integrated environmental and waste
management company with world-class facilities, and
are not only disposing of waste, but are turning it into
valuable resources for re-use in our economy. With a
team of 2,000 devoted employees, each a leader for
environmental change, and assets under management of
over AED 4 million, Beeah has become one of the leading
environmentally responsible companies in the UAE.

Our company continues to work in partnership with


the Sharjah City Municipality to establish ongoing

Letter
programmes and procedures that will ensure Sharjah
remains a shining example of an Emirate that not only
truly cares about its environment, but acts upon its
concern, both locally and regionally.

from the
Adopting its vision to become the best environmental
management company in emerging markets, Beeahs
next stage of expansion includes taking its offerings

beyond Sharjah and into other regions that require
the knowledge and expertise available to sustain their
environmental future.

Yours sincerely,
