QATAR FOUNDATION MEMBER INITIATIVE TO DRIVE SUSTAINABLE AWARENESS IN QATAR

Doha, Qatar March 2019: 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’ Campaign.

The initiative, now in its seventh year, is part of QGBC’s ongoing efforts to help schools, companies, and institutions find ways to reduce paper, plastic and metal 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.”

Engineer Meshal added: ‘We are proud to partner this year with local companies for collection and recycling. We have on board Elite Paper recycling for paper and cardboard, Global Metals for Plastic and metal and our newest addition for e-waste is Q e-waste.”

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, aluminum and steel cans. And for 2019 we welcome the addition of e-waste

All collected recyclable waste should be dropped off at the QGBC Villa on April 7, 8, and 9. 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.
