Bee’ah, the award-winning sustainability and environmental services pioneer, has signed a renewal of its strategic partnership agreement with Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA), to provide integrated waste management services for the free zone community.

The agreement was signed by Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, Director of Hamriyah Free Zone Authority and Fahad Ali Fahad Shehail, Group Chief Operating Officer of Bee’ah.

Under the agreement, Bee’ah will provide solid and liquid waste collection services to the free zone community. Bee’ah already has an office in the Hamriyah Free Zone for direct coordination with the Environmental Health and Safety Department regarding waste management and collection.

In addition, Bee’ah has conducted training courses for staff in the Environmental Health and Safety Department and the Maintenance and Investors Department.

Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah, said: “Bee’ah is pleased to renew its partnership with the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, which has resulted in a fruitful collaboration and beneficial outcomes over the past four years. This renewal underscores both ours and HFZA’s commitment to sustainable growth and environmental protection.”

For his part, Saud Al Mazrouei affirmed that the partnership with Bee’ah reflects the authority’s commitment to the sustainability of its activities and operations, and its unremitting efforts to provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly work environment, and to conserve resources.

Al Mazrouei said that investors do realise that sustainability is an essential part of their strategies to achieve success and growth and enhance their reputation among their customers and consumers, stressing that the authority is always committed to providing the best business environment for its investors and companies.

Bee’ah is widely recognised as the leading sustainable environmental management solutions provider in the Middle East, and serves millions of residents across its operations in the UAE, Egypt and KSA. Driving the UAE’s sustainability agenda, Bee’ah has achieved a 76 per cent waste diversion rate for the Emirate of Sharjah – the highest in the Middle East, and is developing the UAE’s first waste-to-energy plant in Sharjah. As a circular economy advocate, Bee’ah has invested in state-of-the-art recycling and waste treatment facilities housed at its Waste Management Complex in Al Saja’a. Established in November 12, 1995 by Emiri Decree No. 6 of 1995, HFZA is home to over 6,500 businesses from 163 countries. In addition to world-class facilities including offices, warehouses, factories and executive office suites, Hamriyah Free Zone also has over 15 on-site key business services, like banking and auditing firms, currency exchanges, conference rooms, staff accommodation, and more.

Uniquely located at the intersection between three continents allowing you to serve a growing market of 1.5 billion people, Hamriyah Free Zone is your gateway to global business.

In addition to offering industrial and commercial plots of land, HFZA, the second-largest industrial-free zone in the UAE, provides advanced infrastructure and modern facilities that strengthen external expansion plans for investors, especially in import and re-export to the world’s markets.

It also provides countless competitive advantages, most notably a single-window operation that boosts the efficiency of performance and eases procedures of doing business, along with multiple tax exemptions, repatriation of capital and profits, full foreign ownership of the business, and quick access to regional and global markets.  An innovation leader and a pioneering force for sustainable solutions in the Middle East, Bee’ah is a public-private partnership company that was founded in 2007.

With ventures in industries ranging from Waste Management, to Environmental Consulting, Renewable Energy, Technology, Sustainable Transportation, and Training & Development, Bee’ah is creating a better quality of life for all cities and communities in the region.

Bee’ah has executed a comprehensive strategy focused on sustainability and digitalisation, which has reaped rich benefits in the form of the region’s highest waste diversion rates, and the GCC’s first waste-to-energy plant. Bee’ah has supported the region’s agenda for a circular economy and personifies the UAE’s ambitions in leading the dialogue surrounding sustainability in the Mena region.

Earlier in February the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA) has signed an investment agreement with Medtra, one of the world’s major companies in the production and manufacturing of healthcare equipment and products, to expand Medtra’s operations in the Mena markets.

Under this agreement, Medtra, which operates in 40 countries, is set to invest some Dhs100 million in HFZA through the construction of state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, using the latest technologies and innovations.
