GWC Celebrates Earth Hour 2020
GWC (Q.P.S.C), the leading logistics provider in the State of Qatar, has participated in Earth Hour 2020 by turning off the lights in different areas in its Logistics Village Qatar, GWC Bu Sulba Warehousing Park, Street 15, Street 41, Ras Laffan, and its main HQ on D-Ring Road. The company also invited its employees to participate in the initiative.
The company’s participation in this initiative comes amid its response to the COVID-19 outbreak, for which it has put in place every safety measure to ensure the nation’s health. By participating in this event, the company exemplified its commitment to its environmental duty while maintaining the wellbeing of its employees, clients and stakeholders.
“At GWC, we realise that one hour of turning off lights is not a sustainable environmental plan for any company or individual; yet, it’s a symbol of a larger commitment – that for the rest of the year, we will not spare any effort to save our planet.”,” stated GWC Group CEO Mr. Ranjeev Menon.
GWC has a long standing of environmental initiatives such as reduce waste through paperless operations, as well as reduce, reuse, recycle by which the company will treat as many of used materials as possible such as paper, plastics, wood pallets, and oil.
Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment.
Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories, switching off their lights to show support for our planet.
