Doha Bank’s Green Banking Stance and Active Projects Impress COP18 Delegation

 

Doha Bank, the leading advocate and exponent of green banking in Qatar and the region, welcomed a senior delegation from COP18 to its stand at the Qatar Sustainability Expo being held at the Doha Exhibitions Centre.

The delegation was led by H.E. Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah the President-elect of the COP18/CMP8 conference and chairman of the Higher Organising Committee.

His Excellency praised the Doha Bank stand and the positive measures being taken by the Bank to showcase and create green programmes in Qatar and congratulated Doha Bank Group Chief Executive Officer Dr. R. Seetharaman.


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.
