OCP Group will use the funds to finance the construction of a new university campus for the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) near Morocco’s capital city of Rabat which first phase was launched in October 2021. Two new phases will be completed by 2024.</p> <p>This operation is a first in the education sector in Morocco and Africa. It confirms UM6P’s robust and sound financial strategy. It is also a testament to the Group’s approach of the knowledge economy and one of many elements that confirm OCP’s credibility in the ESG landscape. The new campus will offer high quality education to 2,000 students in the fields of economics, governance, political sciences, international relations, behavioral and social sciences, hospitality business and management. In addition, the campus will house a new faculty of governance and include Morocco’s first school and business incubator for artificial intelligence. The facility will also have multisport centers, digital learning laboratories, a language center, a library, and hotels to host university guests and train students in the School of Hospitality Business and Management.</p> <p>UM6P is at the core of OCP’s innovation, sustainability, strategy, and transformation strategy over the past 15 years. Founded in 2017 with a first campus in Benguerir, near Marrakesh, UM6P provides more than 80 percent of OCP’s research and development activities in strategic areas such as fertilizers, industrial facilities, clean energy and sustainable water management. In addition, the university also contributes in developing training programs with OCP’s Learning Institute to enable OCP’s human capital achieve its full potential.</p> <p>“We are very grateful for MIGA’s vote of confidence in our plan to grow UM6P’s reach and educational capacity for the long-term returns it delivers. MIGA’s support in developing our new campus facilities in Rabat will allow us to increase skills, innovation and development in important fields that the current campus does not offer. UM6P’s mission is to consolidate Morocco’s frontline position in these fields, in a partnership-based approach to boosting skills training that are relevant for the future of Africa. OCP Group has grown to become a major player in plant nutrition, and remains convinced that education and R&amp;D are key levers for both the future of food security and community development. This is an exciting development not just for Moroccan students, but for young people across Africa.” said Hicham El Habti, President of UM6P</p> <p>“MIGA is proud to be part of this project where its guarantee is unlocking financing from international lenders at competitive terms to fund the development of cutting-edge facilities in the country,” added Hiroshi Matano MIGA Executive Vice President. “Furthermore, the expansion of UM6P’s R&amp;D facilities will boost Morocco’s competitiveness and contribute to the training of current and future human capital that will benefit the country.”</p> <p>With MIGA’s support, OCP Group has committed to pursue its progress towards green building certifications through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification program for many of its campus facilities in Rabat, in line with its commitment to the “Smart City” spirit of UM6P’s campus in Benguerir, which was the first project to receive this certification in Morocco. Moreover, UM6P will secure third-party verification and will be monitored by a LEED accredited professional. The new campus will include facilities and auxiliary work, with the most important two being the addition of hydraulic structures to protect the campus against the risk of flooding and the burial of a 60 Kv electrical line along with the rehabilitation of an associated substation.</p> <p>OCP Group is a long-term partner of the World Bank Group.

The 2022 edition, themed “Water security for peace and development”, was attended by a distinguished Moroccan delegation, led by the Ministry of Equipment and Water, with more than 50 public officials and large company representatives including OCP Group.</p> <p>OCP Group presented its expertise in water management at a stand at the Pavillon du Maroc at the World Water Exhibition in Diamniadio, near Dakar. OCP representatives Zineb Benjelloun and Adil Hassan from the Sustainability and Green Industrial Development entity also participated as speakers in panels and a side-bar event, which provided an opportunity to discuss the industrial reuse of urban wastewater and the group’s experience in this area.</p> <p>“OCP has set a target of reaching 100% of its water needs from unconventional sources by 2026. This enables us to combine industrial growth with the preservation of freshwater resources,” said Zineb Benjelloun, of the Sustainability and Green Industrial Development division.</p> <p>For his part, Adil Hassani participated in a session organized in collaboration with the Moroccan Water Coalition (COALMA) and emphasized that “the inclusive approach adopted by the Group with all water stakeholder views considered is one of the key factors for success of this integrated strategy”.</p> <p>Water is a major sustainable development priority area for the OCP Group. The group’s commitment to the sustainable management of water resources is not new. For good reason, in 2008 the Group launched a Water strategy, in addition to its Industrial Transformation Strategy, based on the rationalization of water consumption throughout the production process and the prioritization of the mobilization of non-conventional water resources.</p> <p>Thanks to the investments made and the innovation initiatives put in place, this Water Strategy has enabled the Group to greatly increase its production capacity while preserving this resource, which is all the more precious in a context of increasingly sustained water stress.</p> <p>With the creation of the Circular Economy program in 2017, the Group's ambition, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, has been strengthened. Looking forward, it is committed to the ambitious target of meeting 100% of its water needs from non-conventional resources by 2026.</p> <!--</div>--> <!--<div class="clearfix text-formatted">--> <!--<div>--> <picture class="ocp_img"> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/media/styles/max_325x325/azblob/2022-03/Side%20event%20OCP%20wastewater%20reuse%20program_5.jpg?itok=ktPMVQA7 1x" media="(min-width: 1366px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/media/styles/max_325x325/azblob/2022-03/Side%20event%20OCP%20wastewater%20reuse%20program_5.jpg?itok=ktPMVQA7 1x" media="(min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/media/styles/max_325x325/azblob/2022-03/Side%20event%20OCP%20wastewater%20reuse%20program_5.jpg?itok=ktPMVQA7 1x" media="(min-width: 0px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/media/styles/max_325x325/azblob/2022-03/Side%20event%20OCP%20wastewater%20reuse%20program_5.jpg?itok=ktPMVQA7" alt="4" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> <!--</div>--> <!--</div>--> <!--<div>--> Plain Background <!--</div>--> <!--<div>--> <!--<div>--> <a href="/taxonomy/term/40" hreflang="en">Sustainability</a> <!--</div>--> <!--<div>--> <a href="/taxonomy/term/99" hreflang="en">Water</a> <!--</div>--> <!--</div>--> <!--<div>--> <a href="/taxonomy/term/98" hreflang="en">2022</a> <!--</div>--> <!--<div>--> No <!--</div>--> Tue, 29 Mar 2022 15:52:28 +0000 Abdelaziz.Barzani 421 at http://ocpgroup.ma
