Raising awareness of the need to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost waste. Alteo has joined forces with the NGO Mission Verte, through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund, to raise awareness of plastic pollution, particularly in the eastern part of the island. The two entities have just signed an agreement to this effect at Alteo’s head office in St Pierre.

This partnership reflects Alteo’s desire to strengthen its leading position in the implementation of a sustainable development strategy, a sector in which the group is already heavily involved. Fabien de Marassé Enouf explains. “Alteo’s objective is to create long-term value, but this is only possible if we give a central place to sustainable development in the formulation of our strategy, in line with our values,” he says.
Through the partnership, Alteo is funding recycling bins that will be placed in several areas in the East, including Union Flacq, Ferney, Beau Champ and Trou d’Eau Douce. These sorting bins will then be collected twice a month. Schools in the region will also be involved in this action. Indeed, awareness sessions will also be held in ten schools in the east. In addition, awareness-raising videos, highlighting the risks associated with the use of plastic, will also be prepared and broadcast.
Listed on the official market of the Mauritius Stock Exchange, Alteo is the main sugar producer in Mauritius and is also present in East Africa with two sugar plants in Tanzania and Kenya. In addition to its activities in the sugar industry, Alteo operates two power plants in Mauritius and Tanzania as well as a photovoltaic farm in East Mauritius. Alteo is also active in the high-end real estate sector with the Anahita estate, one of the pioneering IRS projects in Mauritius. The group also recently announced the creation of Anahita Beau Champ, a new development under the ‘Smart City’ regime, which is a direct result of the strategic master plan elaborated a few years ago by the group in order to optimize its non sugarcane land assets in Mauritius.
