Berytech received the membership certificate from the Global Waste Cleaning Network, a network open to both profit and non-profit organizations working in the promotion of environmental protection.
The Global Waste Cleaning Network (GWCN) is an international non-profit network comprised of NGOs, educational institutions, and private and public companies, that are active and interested in environmental issues related to the management and reduction of waste, whether solid, liquid or gaseous.
GWCN is dedicated to conserving and maintaining healthy oceans, coastlines, lands and the atmosphere for both people and nature. They play a vital role in the growing worldwide movement to reduce the impact of Environmental pollution on society via advocacy and the implementation of evidence-based programs to reduce pollution.
The purpose of the GWCN is to support environmental activities, showcase, connect and train the network members, contribute to environmental debates, foster environmental research, and spread environment-related information. GWCN advocates for global environmental issues, with special focus on marine debris, air and plastic pollution, and waste management. They also advocate for good practices among NGOs and educational institutions on UN environmental policy and offer guidance on improving the quality of work in the Environmental community worldwide.
GWCN envisions the establishment of a worldwide network that would become influential in making the Earth’s oceans, coastlines, lands and atmosphere safe and healthy through the promotion of proper waste management.
As a member of the GWCN, Berytech will be joining a wide network of environmental organizations from around the world, accessing an online information library related to the topic, and attending the GWCN annual conference among other advantages of being part of the network.
Berytech is active in catalyzing green innovation in Lebanon through different programs supporting clean technologies, valorization of waste, circular businesses and green solutions including DAWERR Program, the Cleanergy Program, GIMED, BESTMEDGRAPE and the STAND Up! Project.
