In support of the environmental awareness drive “Waste Free Environment” (WFE), launched by Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA). Qatar Steel proactively took part in the environmental activity organized by Qatar Petrochemical Co. (QAPCO) at Al-Wakra Beach.
Qatar Steel’s participation in the event emerges from the importance it attaches to the environmental protection, and in line with its efforts to boost this environmental drive and make it a success.
A number of representatives of Qatar’s leading industrial companies participated in the event, as well as officials from various ministries and government organizations. A great number of children from different local schools and other volunteers joined to clean Al-Wakra Beach.
WFE basically aims at spreading environmental awareness; educating the community about the best practices in preserving the environment and efficient waste management in general, as well as changing the individuals’ behavior in terms of throwing wastes in land or sea, causing adverse effects on the wild and marine lives in particular.
The event’s program included contests, games and quizzes about environment preservation, in addition to beach cleaning activities.
