A large number of Qatargas employees participated in the third annual Qatargas beach clean-up held on Saturday (23rd April) at Al Ghariya beach, 85 kilometers North of Doha.

Qatargas launched the annual beach clean-up day initiative in 2013 in coordination with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, as part of the Company’s continued commitment towards promoting environmental protection and preserving the natural beauty of the State of Qatar for generations to come.

This year’s beach clean-up activity witnessed the participation of a large number of Qatargas employees. 

Azzam Abdulaziz Al-Mannai, Qatargas Public Relations Manager said, “We would like to thank all our employees who participated in the beach clean-up activity for setting aside a few hours from their weekend holiday to participate in this worthwhile activity.
This is a clear demonstration of their personal commitment towards environmental protection.  We also greatly appreciate the continued support from the Ministry of Municipality and
Environment.”

“Initiatives aimed at promoting environmental protection form an integral part of Qatargas’ Corporate Social Responsibility Programme. Our efforts in this area are fully aligned with the objectives of the Environmental Development pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030.”

A long stretch of the beach at Al Ghariya was cleaned as part of the event.  This involved the

collection and removal of several bags of rubbish and debris including plastic bottles and plates, cans, wood and several other items.

Al Ghariya is a popular beach, visited by several people, especially during the weekends.  The sandy beach and shallow water provide a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.  So, in addition to helping protect marine life, the removal of litter and debris from the beach will also make it a cleaner, more beautiful place for visitors.

Qatargas is totally committed to the management of the environment in which we operate. As a responsible energy operator, Qatargas is keen to promote pioneering environmental solutions to further improve the environmental performance of our LNG and other production facilities.
