Visionscape partners CBN on withdrawal of polymer notes
Held annually by the CBN to commemorate WED, the event featured discussions around the WED global theme– Beat Plastic Pollution – as stakeholders deliberated on ways to enhance sustainable practices in the Nigerian corporate sector.
Visionscape’s participation was designed to kick off a long-term partnership with the apex bank in a bid to create solutions to plastic pollution from source and find alternative means of retrieving old polymer notes from the economy.
Speaking on the partnership, Head, Corporate Communications, Visionscape Group, Motunrayo Elias, stated that collaboration with the CBN would support key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
She stressed that the company is “growing the recycling industry in Nigeria, which increases the share of manufacturing in the GDP and foster inclusive and sustainable industrialisation.
This collaboration supports global climate change targets to substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse by 2030.”
In his submission, CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele said WED is “a game-changing celebration which provided an opportunity for the CBN to renew its commitments.
