Rössing Uranium celebrates World Environmental Day
09 June 2021 | Local News
Over the years, Rössing Uranium has taken part in this celebration as an opportunity for promoting environmental awareness and showcase environmental work to communities.
The uranium mining giant said via a statement that; this day serves as a reminder to all that our world is fragile, that we need to do better collectively – it is a steady reminder that Earth is all we got, so it is for us to take care of our environment. Ecosystems support all life on Earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet - and its people.
This year also marks the formal launch of the United Nation Decade on
Ecosystem Restoration 2021 – 2030.
Ecosystems and associated biodiversity at the mine are managed through the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) that follows the mitigation hierarchy which aims to prevent, minimise, restore and rehabilitate Rössing’s’ footprint.
This hierarchy enables Rössing to reduce, minimise and restore its impact on the ecosystem.
“We cannot stress enough that we cannot turn back time, but we can grow trees, green our cities, re-wild our garden and clean up rivers and our communities, said Jacklyn Mwenze, Rossing Uranium’s manager Health, Safety, Environment and Protections Services.
