Waste management

Protecting natural resources

Effective waste management is an integral part of our operations, and Aramco follows a CCE approach to the waste we generate.

Waste is classified into three types and waste management options are ranked by their environmental impact, with highest priority going to waste prevention, followed by reuse, recycling, recovery and, lastly, disposal. Today, our enhanced waste management initiative covers all aspects of waste management related to waste generator, waste transporter, waste receiver and waste management technologies, compliance, facility performance, current practices by waste generators, waste data, and monitoring.

We conduct regular waste management training programs for our professionals and continue to spread the benefits of our waste management approach throughout the Kingdom, including via recycling awareness programs in our local communities, offices, schools, universities, and municipalities.
