One of the most important case stories from Kazakhstani market, which supports our Together Towards ZERO sustainability programme is the regional environmental campaign ‘Moldir su’, which is held by Carlsberg Kazakhstan with the active partnership of local authorities for the second year in a row. ‘Moldir su’ could be literally translated as 'Pure water’ from Kazakh language.
During this environmental campaign our employees, volunteers and media representatives cleaned local reservoirs. Jointly, almost 18 tons of garbage were collected on the coasts of unique local Alakol and Balkhash lakes, and water basins in Atyrau and Almaty cities. This year the part of collected plastic was transferred to recycling. For example, the plastic collected from the lake situated in Almaty will be recycled into garbage containers.
This project is a part of the activities outlined by our new sustainability program Together Towards to ZERO, one of the priorities of which is ZERO water waste.
