Jordan Environment Society for recycling (JES)

The Amman office has recently signed up with the Jordan Environment Society for recycling (JES). Jordan Environment Society was established in 1988 as a non-profit non-governmental organization. It is the largest NGO in Jordan in its field. The objective of JES includes, but is not limited to, protecting the environment and its basic elements of water, air, soil and wildlife. Based on the belief that the environment is both the endowment and responsibility of all people, JES encourages interaction of various entities in environmental solutions. Through its 11 branches around the country, JES raises public awareness and promotes community action at the local level. By accessing professionals in both the private and public sector, JES enables the adoption of policies and the application of international environmental standards.

Environmental actions for the Amman office

As the office expanding we are trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Working with the JES is not only helpful to our company but the wider environment in with we work. At the end of each working day we;

  • turn off the lights in our offices
  • shut our print/copy machines
  • turn off our heat/A.C

Other positive changes in the workplace include;

  • recycling paper
  • special recycling trash cans to separate cardboard, cans, papers and plastic objects

Eversheds Sutherland, Jordan - Our environmental ethos

Everyone in the Amman office has a role to play to help the environment and be eco friendly. These small changes will not only improve our lifestyle but also will save us money and most importantly make our world a better place to live.
