April 05, 2016
As part of its ongoing efforts to raise awareness about sustainability best practice among businesses and residents, Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC) has invited companies and individuals across the nation to participate in its annual ‘No Paper Day Qatar’ campaign on 7 April.
Aimed at encouraging local businesses and the wider community to adopt eco-friendly initiatives geared at reducing paper waste nationwide, the campaign highlights how reducing the use of Qatar’s vital resources can improve not only business efficiency, but also help preserve the environment’s long-term health.

More than 50 organizations from across various sectors of Qatar’s economy have so far registered to take part in the campaign. These businesses come from the construction, hospitality, oil and gas, education, sustainability, facility management, catering, consulting, and communications industries.

As part of the campaign, QGBC will share tips with the public on how to save paper in their daily lives, whether at home, in the office or at school, through Facebook and Twitter. QGBC also encourages the public to go online and take part in the campaign using the hashtag #NPDQatar.

This campaign provides the nation with an opportunity to reassert its commitment to building a greener future, as outlined in Qatar National Vision 2030’s strategic objectives.
