Peren and Paladin have teamed up to lead a major recycling initiative on Manus Island. Led by Papuan Olympic boxer Hubert “Terminator” Tinge Meta, this project has seen teams conduct beach, lagoon and other clean-ups as well as raise public awareness of the harm of single-use plastics on the Manus environment.

This initiative is part of Paladin’s commitment to protect and preserve the natural environment in the communities in which it operates. Earlier, Paladin began to make changes across its supply chain to reduce single-use materials and ensure the sanitary re-use of commonly used items.

Peren and Paladin will continue to support the excellent work undertaken by the local community in recycling and waste management with a view to promoting Manus as a leader in environmental risk management in PNG.
