CEC was awarded the 2017 Environment Award by the Zambia Environmental Management Agency in recognition of our overall contribution to sustainable environmental practices.
We recognise the benefit of good environmental stewardship and we are committed to implementing good environmental practices, continual improvement in environmental performance and managing our activities in a manner consistent with our environmental obligations, both legal and morally.
CEC monitors all regulated sites in relation to various environmental aspects including air emissions, transportation/disposal of non-hazardous waste, and generation/ storage and transportation of hazardous waste. CEC achieved 100% compliance with statutory emission limits for the emergency power plants and all other requirements for reporting. Further, mandatory regulatory approvals for various projects were secured.
CEC is the proud sponsor of a reforestation project, which included a tree planting event at locations in Kitwe and Luanshya.
