Commenting on the day, QIB’s Group CEO, Bassel Gamal, stated “Here at QIB, we understand the impact corporations can have on social and environmental issues such as reducing pollution, emission, and waste. The wellbeing of the environment we live in is important to us, and our Bank’s community services mirror this sense of responsibility. We implemented these activities and participate in the 2018 Earth Day to encourage a greener way of living for all.”

2018 marks the 48th year since the launch of the Earth Day concept. Since then, the Earth Day Network has grown into a worldwide movement. QIB’s participation in the Earth Day is a small contribution towards encouraging social change aiming to leave behind healthier surroundings for the future generations in Qatar.
