Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) organised a meeting to coincide with World Postal Day where it highlighted the importance of the conservation of environment and its limited resources.

World Postal Day is celebrated on October 9 in more than 190 affiliates of the International Postal Union (IPU).

While speaking at the meeting on the "Use of paper and protection of the environment, Kahramaa's Health, Safety and Environment Department's senior environment specialist Mohamed al-Muhannadi explained how systematically and effectively the corporation is promoting its Tarsheed campaign, based on conservation and rational use of energy and water.

Highlighting the necessity of avoiding wastage of resources, the speaker told how difficult it is to produce paper and how it is wasted through excessive use in many areas.

While explaining the deeper impact of waste paper on the environment, green house emissions and landfills, the Kahramaa official said the corporation has succeeded in sending a worthy message to consumers through Tarsheed campaign.

Al-Muhannadi also recalled that their offices are following the "reduce, recycle and reuse" method when it comes to the use of paper and how it has succeeded in the campaign so far.

Qatar Post's leadership skills development head Hessa al-Marissi said their company has wholeheartedly supported the Tarsheed campaign and how they saved considerable quantities of energy and water in their offices' premises. Realising the harm the littering of waste paper causes to the environs, their offices are focusing wholly on online operations for their day-to-day functioning.

The Qatar Post official also recalled that the postal company has consistently promoted environment-friendly initiatives without fail and highlighted its prominence repeatedly through the stamps and other postal articles it has launched.

At the venue of the meeting, there was an exhibition of the stamps brought out by the postal corporation between 1965 and 2017, promoting environmental campaigns, though an array of topics such as wild life, marine life etc.

Apart from officials of Kahramaa, students from some of the local schools also attended the meeting.
