Mowasalat (Karwa) reaffirms its dedication to environmental preservation on World Environment Day 2023. The company is committed to continuing and increasing initiatives that were launched in the previous years to promote sustainability and reduce its ecological footprint.

With a focus on sustainable mobility, Mowasalat (Karwa) has electrified a large portion of its bus fleet, ensuring zero emissions and minimal noise pollution. All City Taxis have been replaced by latest-model hybrid cars, that considerably reduce harmful exhaust fumes, and with the fully electric ‘Iconic Limousine’, the company has also started looking into the electrification of its light vehicle fleet. Mowasalat (Karwa) constantly pushes the agenda for digital solutions to improve operational efficiency, which is also a determining factor for cleaner transportation and a healthier environment for the community.

The company acknowledges the importance of effectively managing valuable resources and has implemented substantial measures to reduce water and electricity usage. In 2022, the company achieved a remarkable 27% reduction in freshwater and a 21% decrease in electricity consumption compared to the previous year.

On this occasion, Mr. Khalid Al-Kaabi, the HSSE Manager of Mowasalat Karwa, said: “We firmly believe that safeguarding the environment is a shared responsibility. By implementing sustainable practices and adopting innovative solutions, we strive to set a positive example in shaping a greener future for Qatar.”

An innovative approach towards waste management is another keystone of Mowasalat (Karwa)’s environmental initiatives. In cooperation with a professional partner, the company produces fertilizer and compost from the food waste of more than 4000 staff, generated at the canteens of depots and accommodations.

The resulting compost is utilized to nourish trees and plants in Karwa City, where drivers are encouraged to cultivate their own green spaces. In 2022 alone, around 1600 trees and shrubs were planted in and around all staff accommodation areas, further enhancing both the quality of air and the quality of life.

The company’s eco-conscious management also extends to recycling used oils, scrap metal, tires, electronics, and paper to effectively reduce its environmental impact. This practice not only minimizes waste but also contributes to the conservation of natural resources.

Mowasalat (Karwa) continues to explore new avenues for sustainable development and remains steadfast in its efforts to preserve the environment. Through ongoing initiatives and partnerships, the company aims to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable Qatar for generations to come in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.
