We have an extensive track record of designing and implementing solid waste management strategies with sustainable social impact at their heart. CID works on promoting ESG principles, developing ESG and social investment strategy frameworks, designing relevant ESG initiatives and conducting and monitoring implementation. With an in-depth knowledge of Egypt’s informal waste sector, our projects ensure that local, informal communities are integrated into the design of our systems – effectively addressing both waste management and social development needs. The depth of our experience combined with our innovation and network, enable us to bridge the gap between waste collectors, the private sector and government, to develop systems that leverage Egypt’s unique waste collection and create pioneering waste management footprints.
