Best Practice in Most Innovative Category Award

Innovation matters… #MaltaFreeportTerminals is delighted to have won the Best Practice in Most Innovative Category award for the projects it conceived for European Week for Waste Reduction 2023. The Malta Waste Reduction Awards 2024 was organised by Wasteserv, the Malta Government agency responsible for organising, managing and operating integrated systems for waste management. Speaking at the awards, Malta’s Minister for the Environment, Energy, and the Regeneration of the Grand Harbour, Miriam Dalli, emphasised the important role of fostering environmentally conscious behaviour and encouraging sustainable waste practices. “These initiatives underscore the importance of everyone’s contributions and show that collective efforts, no matter how small, are instrumental in stimulating positive environmental changes,” she said.

The Freeport’s initiatives included transforming wooden pallets into tables and benches, converting empty oil tanks into tables and creating a path for local Girl Guides from pellets. Our employees also transformed old glass bottles into innovative table lamps and collected shopping bags that were given to Foodbank Lifeline Foundation which distributes food to people in need. Other initiatives included a clean-up of the seabed in the local village, Birzebbuga, and creating simple decorative arrangements by planting various cacti in old pots and glass jars. A big well done to our team for this achievement.
