In what it says as the first of its kind ever in the country, the Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has launched a competition for the best sustainable local product.
It is being launched with the plan to encourage the country's industrial and commercial sectors to produce more environment friendly sustainable products in Qatar, according to a statement from Kahramaa. It is one of the initiatives of Kahramaa's National Programme for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed) and entries will be received until April 1, it said.
The competition, it said, aims to raise awareness about the concept of sustainability and its role in the progress of domestic products in Qatar. Through the said contest, the corporation is urging the industrial and commercial sectors to adopt strategies to conserve the environment and achieve sustainability in their production processes.
It also asks the local manufacturers to adopt practices of Tarsheed and energy efficiency in the domestic market and promote competitiveness between the industrial and commercial sectors and private sector development in Qatar.
Those interested to enter the contest can visit Kahramaa website and review the terms of the competition and the technical criteria to evaluate and then fill the registration form.
The winners of the best sustainable local product will be honored at the 6th al Tarsheed ceremony on April 22, 2018.
