Kahramaa calls on staff to plant treesElite
The Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa), represented by the National Programme for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed), has launched a plant distribution initiative as an Eid gift for its employees. “We believe that at Kahramaa, we are one family. As an Eid gift, we are giving out plants to our employees to grow them at their homes, and contribute with us to make Qatar greener.
This initiative mirrors our vision to plant 10,000 trees by Kahramaa and those collaborating with us,” according to a post on the Tarsheed Twitter page.
Employees can collect their plants from the Kahramaa Awareness Park, Kahramaa building in Abu Hamour, Kahramaa Tower 1 and the Customer Service building in Al Hilal. This can be done Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9am to 2pm.
In January this year, Kahramaa launched an initiative to plant 10,000 trees as part of the ongoing ‘Plant a Million Trees’ initiative by the Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar that works under the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) in co-ordination with several ministries and other entities such as the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of Culture and Sports, Qatar Museums, Qatar Rail, Private Engineering Office and others.
The trees are planted at its buildings and facilities, starting with the Awareness Park. The initiative comes as a fulfilment of its social responsibility, and Kahramaa, represented by Tarsheed, co-operates with the Public Gardens Department at the MME in the initiative to plant trees. The initiative is being implemented as part of Kahramaa’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions following the Qatar National Vision 2030 environmental goal of sustainable development.
