Qatar Foundation Member Initiative to Drive Sustainable Awareness in Qatar
Doha, Qatar March 19, 2018: Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC), a member of Qatar Foundation (QF), has opened registration for organizations in Qatar who wish to take part in its annual ‘No Paper Day Qatar’.
The initiative, now in its sixth year, is part of QGBC’s ongoing efforts to help schools, companies, and institutions find ways to reduce paper consumption, engage the wider community in environmentally-friendly practices, and raise sustainability awareness.
Engineer Meshal Al Shamari, Director, QGBC, said: “We are delighted with the success of this campaign over the past few years. It has encouraged companies and individuals to reduce their recyclable waste and celebrate Qatar’s efforts to build a more sustainable future. We look forward to the continuing participation of our existing partners and to bringing new partners on board for this exciting and important work supporting the environmental and social pillars of Qatar National Vision 2030.”
As in previous years, companies and individuals taking part in ‘No Paper Day Qatar’ are encouraged to start saving and collecting recyclable waste in the form of newspapers and magazines, office paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, plastic cups and jugs, and aluminium and steel cans.
All collected recyclable waste should be dropped off at the QGBC Villa on April 8, 9, and 10. Participating companies will be invited to attend an appreciation event to celebrate the success of the campaign and will also receive QGBC-led sustainability training sessions at their premises.
