Optiven Goes Green on Projects Development



Africa generates over 70 million tonnes of municipal solid waste annually, approximately 20% of this is plastic. According to the World Bank, this is set to double by the year 2025 owing to rapid urbanization and industrialization.

Here in Kenya, according to recent statistics by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, we generate an estimated 22,000 tons of waste per day calculated by assuming an average of per capita waste generation of 0.5 kilogrammes. Past inventories indicate a national average estimate of 20% waste being plastic.

Educated by the need to provide a remedy to this environmental problem, Optiven Group, a leading brand in the African real estate sector, and whose main purpose is to transform and empower the Society, has now adopted the use of recycled posts in order to conserve the environment.

“We are passionate and intentional about going green in all our projects. To walk the talk, we have moved to the use recycled posts in marking all our project roads, fencing of green parks, common areas and flower parks,” says Mr. George Wachiuri, Optiven Group CEO.

The use of green materials means we replace the use of timber. It is imperative to mention here, that about 7 billion trees are cut down in the world each year. A good percentage of these trees go to fencing posts.

By using plastic recycled posts, Optiven will be playing its role not only in championing for trees planting, but also in making sure that trees felling is discouraged.

Among the projects that will have these recycled posts include Garden of Joy, Amani Ridge – The Place of Peace and Shekinah Gardens.

The use of these Eco-posts and green technology will help in amongst others things; Job creation, Increase use of plastic waste & this increase the jobs in our Society

It will further boost the Buy-Kenya-Build-Kenya initiative

We will save our trees, Reduce imports of steel, enable and promote clean environment and further reduce decline of our forests.

We at Optiven encourage other real estate, SMEs and all Kenyans to use recycled posts in all their fencing needs.

We also have a goal of recycling over 70% of the water that we use in our projects, use of solar energy, we advocate and use bio digesters in our projects, recycling the waste water.
