AAB and DEAP hold Cleanup at the Singing Dunes

 

Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros. Co. (AAB), the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in Qatar conducted a joint cleanup with the Doha Environmental Action Project (DEAP), a volunteering organization leading the fight against plastic pollution and dune/ beach cleanup movement in Qatar.  The event was part of the Qatar Sustainability Week (QSW) 2020 activities.

The sand dune clean-up was held at the Singing Dunes, approximately 40 km South West of Doha near the Wakrah Municipality. AAB employees together with DEAP volunteers, carried out the cleaning operation across the area for an hour. Around 400 kilograms of plastics and non-biodegradable wastes were collected within that time. This highlights the importance of every person’s role when interacting in nature where care and responsibility is imperative in order to create a sustainable future for the next generation. The local green community is able to make a difference in this event in keeping Qatar clean. This was the 184th Clean Up carried out by DEAP. Social distancing and health measures were in place during the cleanup.

AAB is proud to be one of DEAP’s Main Partners in their endeavor and advocacy for a greener environment.

AAB is fully committed to giving back to the community through its CSR initiatives with one of its major pillars focused on caring for the Environment.  This commitment is reflected on its support to programs geared towards a Green Qatar.  Its continuing partnership with the Public Parks Department in the Seedlings to your Home and Reduction of Carbon Footprint projects promote environmental care. Its collaboration with DEAP, reinforce and manifest AAB’s commitment and active role in contributing towards the fulfillment of Qatar National Vision 2030.
