Dr. Seetharaman escorted the delegation through the stand and highlighted the various programmes that will be showcased during the event.
During the normal days of the exhibition, officials at the Doha Bank stand will highlight two major projects: the ECO-Schools programme and a Corporate Carbon Footprint programme, both of which are being championed by Doha Bank in Qatar.
The ECO-Schools programme will host a “Climate Change School Competition” which will include essay writing & painting competitions as well as songs and presentations of environmental projects conducted by the schools as part of the ECO-Schools programme. Presentations and competitions will take place at the Bank’s stand from 11:30am to 1.30pm and from 2:00pm to 4:00pm every day.
During showcase sessions being hosted at the Doha Bank stand at the Expo, Doha Bank is also offering corporate entities and visitors in Qatar the ability to learn more about the technology and software that works to help complete data capture and reports as well as how performance indicators are assessed and implemented in a carbon footprint programme.
During COP18, utilising this software and technology, Doha Bank will help calculate an organizations footprint for their buildings if they supply data covering area in square meters, number of staff occupying the tower, water and electricity consumption for past 12 months.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the Doha Bank exhibit to avail of this opportunity.
