The management of Green Cities Incorporated, a social enterprise specialized in waste management in Liberia, has launched a five-year strategic plan intended to set the platform for the company to implement its goals.
The five-year strategic plan unveiled recently at a two-day retreat in Monrovia by Mr. James Mulbah, Chief Executive Officer of Green Cities, will run from 2021 to 2025.
He said the plan will also prepare the company and its staff to be more robust in its activities for this year. The retreat was attended by 20 employees of the company.
According to him, the plan will focus on leadership and job ethics that ensure a better opportunity for them.
He said for an institution to develop a system that all employees can be a part as a team, “It will really need good staff and this is what we are doing here today.”
Further speaking, Mulbah said the retreat also afforded staff the opportunity to reflect on the company’s activities for the past years.
He said reviewing the activities of the company for the past years will enable it to make the necessary corrections where mistakes were made.
“The retreat this year focused on leadership, job ethics and a five-year strategic plan that will set the platform for the company to implement its activities for the New Year,”Mulbah stated.
In another development, Green cities through the sponsorship of its partner, Fair Recycling in Switzerland, conducted training for about 30 persons in the area of waste separation.
He said the first phase of the training considered two courses that were conducted online.
In addition to the two courses, Green Cities will be offering 10 more courses for six months.
He said as part of Fair Recycling initiatives, they tried to build a system in Liberia where training will be done in all lines of waste value chain, commencing from plastic to environmental health, safety and electronic waste.
Green Cities Inc. is also dedicated to providing quality organic compost that will help reduce the quantity of chemical fertilizer in Liberia.
