As part of the initiative this year, on April 27, Qatargas employees will plant 'Wild Sidr' plants at the 'Umm Garn Nature Reserve' about 30 kilometers north of Doha. Being organized in collaboration with the General Directorate of Nature Reserves, the initiative aims to protect the biodiversity of the State of Qatar for generations to come.
Mansour Rashid Al-Naimi, Qatargas Public Relations Manager said: "We are pleased to launch this initiative as part of Qatargas' corporate social responsibility programme that promotes sustainable development through the protection and preservation of our environment, which is crucial not only for us, but for our future generations as well. This initiative is aimed at enriching the desert meadows, which are an integral element of Qatar's natural vegetation. Another important objective we aim to achieve from this is to promote environmental responsibility and voluntary work among our staff."
"Over the past several years, we have been leading a number of important innovative environmental projects in Ras Laffan as well as supporting the State's efforts in this regard, in alignment with the Environmental Development pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. Earlier this month, we launched our Annual Beach Clean-up initiative, in which nearly 250 participated in cleaning the Al Fuwairit beach in the North of Qatar." he added.
Talal Al Naimi, Director of Nature Reserves commented: "Environmental protection and conservation is everyone's responsibility and we appreciate and welcome this Qatargas initiative for promoting a greener Qatar. Conservation of plants is an essential component of efforts for biodiversity conservation. As plants are at risk of extinction, in all parts of the world, their conservation is a priority."
