Doha, 5 June 2018 -- QNB, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa, has launched a new recycling initiative, and invited staff to make environmental pledges to "reduce, reuse, and recycle" to hang on on large printed trees in the Head Office and Al-Mathaf building entrances.

The initiative, which marks World Environment Day, aims to engage staff and raise general awareness about the importance to live sustainably and reduce impact on the environment. World Environment Day, which takes place every 5th of June is the biggest environmental event to partake in positive environmental action.

The recycling initiative is launched in partnership with Elite Paper Recycling, a local Qatari company. Elite Paper Recycling will collect QNB’s paper and cardboard waste, to recycle into quality raw material used to supply the corrugated carton packaging industry.

The initiative is part of the Group's comprehensive sustainability program aiming at maximizing the shared value the Bank generates for its business and stakeholders now and for the long term.

The Group has aligned its sustainability goals with the objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as well as Qatar Stock Exchange guidance on sustainable initiatives.

Protecting and supporting the environment is a key pillar of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility program. QNB Group continues to support environmental initiatives in Qatar and throughout the markets in which it operates.
