Three-year Qatar cleanliness campaign launched
Qatargas & Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning sign agreement
Qatargas has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning to become the official sponsor of an extensive, nation-wide general cleanliness campaign.
The campaign will run for three years and address issues such as littering, spitting in streets and public spaces, hanging laundry in balconies and in public view, throwing garden waste in public places, overflowing sewages, leaving used household equipment or their parts in public places, throwing plastic bags in public places, throwing food waste in public parks and beaches, leaving old cars in public parking lots, not using safety covers in transport vehicles, leaving sewage valves open, washing vehicles in places not specified for the same, non-compliance with public health rules in kitchens of restaurants, and non-compliance of sewage vehicles with existing rules and regulations, among others.
His Excellency Sheikh Abdul Rahman Bin Khalifa Al Thani, minister for Municipality and Urban Planning said during the press conference: "This campaign is aimed at ensuring we preserve the beauty of our country and do not spoil it through a lack of general cleanliness. I thank Qatargas for supporting this campaign, which is designed in a proactive way so that the audience will be encouraged to embrace positive actions rather than following negative practices."
Qatargas CEO Khalid Bin Khalifa Al Thani added: "Our environment has always been of paramount importance to us at Qatargas and it is one of the key focus areas of our corporate social responsibility strategy. We are pleased to join hands with the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning to create a healthy living environment for our whole community. This campaign allows us to be at the forefront of ensuring the environment we all live in is the nicest we can possibly make it and shows our commitment to the people and the future of the State of Qatar."
The campaign will be spread through a widespread publicity initiative - through use of SMS, popular websites, roll-ups, stickers, and flyers, along with traditional media like advertisements on TV.
