The Qatar Petroleum (QP) Environment Fair is an annual event created as a way to educate, entertain and raise awareness about several important environmental issues that affect Qatar and the world. During the three days event, all QP Joint Ventures, and other well-known companies in Qatar, have a golden opportunity to reach to children as a way to guarantee a greener future for our planet.
This year’s environment fair was done with the theme “The Environment is everyone’s responsibility”, and ORYX GTL Limited, a leading Qatari company in the Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) industry, took this opportunity to support the State of Qatar in its commitment to the environment, while making interesting and fun activities for children of different ages.
In sync with the company’s vision and values, ORYX GTL teamed up with the team planning the World Environment Day (WED) celebrations in Qatar, to teach children about the importance of caring for the environment and how everyone has a role in its conservation in a fun a creative way, by painting a rainforest inspired mural in the stand and doing other artistic activities.
The WED is a world-wide campaign of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to celebrate concrete, socially – responsible activity in promoting greater awareness about the environment and sustainable development. On 2012 the focus of this day is on everyone’s responsibility on a greener economy to guarantee a more sustainable and greener future for the generations to come.
Children and adults visiting the ORYX GTL stand had the opportunity to learn new ways to protect the environment starting from home, have fun with different artistic activities, as well as know more about the several initiatives organized by IAID and the Friends of the Environment Centre (FEC) to celebrate the WED 2012 in Qatar with the support of ORYX GTL as Platinum Sponsor.
Once again, ORYX GTL’s participation in the 2012 QP Environment Fair provided the pioneer company a great opportunity to educate children, raise awareness about environmental issues, whilst supporting the State of Qatar in its environmental goals.
