Sign the Green Pledge The Green Business Handbook

Some Lebanese companies and organizations have already passed the green light. Here are some examples:

  • Launched the new Chevrolet Bolt EV (all electric car) in Lebanon, which help in reducing fuel consumption hence pollution & emissions 
  • Chevrolet Bolt EV is smoother mechanically than a regular petrol car, with only about a tenth of the moving parts of a conventional automobile. This translates to less wear and tear, fewer trips to the service center and greater ease of maintenance, thus customers benefit from lots of savings. It is also powered by a 60-kWh battery pack delivering 204 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque, which could be easily charged at home overnight
  • Chevrolet Bolt EV demonstrated its incredible 500+ km range as part of the 2018 Global Electric Vehicle Road Trip in the Middle East, on a single charge. With its fully electric and affordable capabilities, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is a key step to a future of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion


  • ENERGY SAVING REMINDER: In 2018, installed energy saving reminder stickers next to all light switches in their headquarters to remind people to turn off the light before they leave each room
  • LED LIGHTS: Replaced all lights in Nahr el Mot HQ with LED bulbs in November 2015, following a study by SOLARWORLD. The switch has saved 180 amps of electricity, which is estimated at 554,400 kWh annually, according to the study

  • CARDBOARD: Most used cardboard is sold to Gemayel Freres for recycling. Over 5 tons were saved in 4 months
  • PRINTER TONER: Empty printer toner cartridges are returned to BUROCRATE sarl for refilling.  More than 100 cartridges were saved in 1 year

  • METAL: All metal parts are collected in the workshops and sold for recycling
  • NITROGEN TIRE FILLING For Motorcycles: Using nitrogen in motorcycle tires helps maintain a healthy tire pressure, which reduces rolling resistance, resulting in better fuel efficiency
  • COOLING GAS: To save cooling gas, when an AC compressor or a radiator is changed, a specialized machine is used to store this gas and refill the newly installed part

  • RYMCO enforces a recycling system internally in support of T.E.R.R.E. Liban in “Papivore Malin” the paper recycling project.

  • Rymco is always open to green initiatives sponsorships and other CSR activities
  • Internal Recycling Program in collaboration with Arc en Ciel: Leaving a reduced environmental footprint has been one of our main concerns. To meet this goal, we have implemented recycling initiatives in all our facilities.
