The Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa), represented by the National Programme for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed), has started 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.
Kahramaa tweeted that trees will be planted at its buildings and facilities, starting with its Awareness Park. “In fulfilment of its social responsibility, Kahramaa, represented by Tarsheed, co-operates with the Public Parks Department at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) in the initiative to plant trees,” Kahramaa said.
“Tarsheed is keen on fulfilling its environmental and social duties by contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions, following the Qatar National Vision 2030 environmental goals of sustainable development,” it added.
The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar works under the 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 committee is responsible for five major tasks, including the construction of central public parks, provision of dedicated lanes for pedestrians and bicycles, development of the Doha Corniche and Central Doha and increasing afforestation and green areas. The committee’s work will enhance sustainability through minimising environmental pollution and reducing the emission of CO2 through reduced consumption of energy resources.
It also focuses on the provision of more public transport options aiming at reduced use of private cars and improving lifestyle through clean and safe transportation.
