Fine Hygienic Holding (FHH) stressed its commitment to international standards in all its facilities in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

During the fourth edition of Egypt Facility Management Forum, Ahmed El Fakharanyi, Chief Commercial Officer and General Manager of Fine Hygienic Holding Group in Egypt, said “I would like to reiterate that we at Fine Group are committed to putting environment, safety, and occupational health at the forefront of our priorities.”

“We are applying international standards at our factories, so as to conform to the principles of sustainable development,” he added.

He noted that “We are all certainly beyond proud of our participation in Egypt Facility Management Forum, given that this huge Forum highlights the innovative solutions in the field of sustainability.”

During its notable participation in the forum, Fine Hygienic Holding, one of the world’s leading groups in the field of wellness and health and sanitary hygienic paper industry manufacturing, showcases its sustainability leading efforts at Egypt Facility Management Forum which is the largest facilities management event in the Middle East and Africa.

The Forum – held under the auspices of the Ministry of Housing – aims at exchanging successful experiences in relation to innovative and sustainable solutions in the infrastructure domain.

The Forum also works on maximizing the participation of the private sector in achieving the Ministry’s strategies.

During the forum, the FHH showcased its prominent sustainable practices applied within its production facilities.

FHH was keen on confirming that all its healthy paper products are made from 100% virgin pulp, provided by pulp suppliers that are all certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®).

FHH also shared its non-stop efforts to take great steps to cut carbon dioxide emissions, by using natural gas as the main source of electricity generation in its four production facilities in Egypt. This led to reducing carbon emissions of these facilities by more than 25 thousand tons annually.

Furthermore, FHH presented its pioneering experience in reducing water consumption within its factories in Egypt by more than 20%, through establishing one of the most advanced water treatment plants in 6th of October City which was inaugurated last year by the Minister of Environment.

Initially, the participation of the Fine Group in the Forum stemmed from its constant keenness to actively partake in all the global, regional, and local events that are pertinent to sustainability and environment issues, given that it is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact.

The Fine Group is also constantly working to reduce its energy and water consumption in its operations, and is looking for new and innovative ways to conserve resources.

It is worth mentioning that the Fine Hygienic Holding has succeeded in obtaining the Environmental Footprint Certificate in Egypt, the ISO 9001 Certificate in Quality Management System and Environmental Management, and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Certificate.
