Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) marked Earth Day 2019 by distributing 600 free plants among its customers in collaboration with Al Sulaiteen Agricultural and Industrial Complex (SAIC), as part of its community support programme. The celebration highlights the “bank’s efforts and contribution to the sustainability scene in Qatar”, QIB has said in a statement.
In line with Earth Day, the plants were given away at six key branches of QIB: Corporate, Salwa Road, Al Gharafa (Q-Mall), Sheikh Abdulla Bin Zaid Al Mahmoud Islamic Cultural Centre (Fanar), Al Sadd and Al Rayan.
Mashaal Abdulaziz al-Derham, assistant general manager, head of Corporate Communications & Quality Assurance at QIB, said: “QIB’s management and employees take pride in participating in Earth Day 2019. As QIB is a leader within the Islamic financial industry, we have a duty to our community and our country, Qatar, to raise awareness about pollution, carbon emission and waste.
“The bank will continue to diversify its welfare projects with the aim of giving back to our community and enhance our corporate social responsibility role.”
As QIB contributes to social change to leave behind healthier surroundings for future generations to come, it “continues to align its activities and services with global initiatives as part of its commitment to the Qatar community and environment”, the statement noted. On this occasion, QIB said it aims to inspire people to support ongoing initiatives by companies and other individual efforts to observe Earth Day annually.
2019 marks the 49th year since the launch of the Earth Day concept.
