Turning trash into cash. MAYKOR participates in session of ecology committee of Russian Managers Association
MAYKOR, a leading Russian provider of IT and business process outsourcing services, participated in a session of the ecology committee of the Russian Managers Association. The event took place on June 18 in Moscow. The key subject of the discussion was the problems and trends in waste management.

This meeting was part of a series of meetings planned by the committee for the Year of Ecology in Russia. It should result in the development of recommendations on environmental responsibility for businesses and state authorities, which can facilitate development of “green” business.

The participants of the discussion highlighted the need for planning waste recycling opportunities as early as at the stage of package design of goods, creating financial incentives for developing the practice of separate waste collection and disposal and building the necessary infrastructure for it. In particular, the participants expressed ideas to reduce utility charges for those households and businesses which practice separate waste collection and disposal with its subsequent recycling.

As part of the Year of Ecology, MAYKOR is carrying out several activities under the Green Office project. Among them are wastepaper collection in the head office in Moscow, a series of corporate digest publications with environmental protection recommendations and a drawing competition for the children of the employees.
