Qatar Railways company (Qatar Rail), in collaboration with the Ministry of Municipality, held a tree-planting event as part of its “Plant a Tree” initiative launched in 2021. This initiative aims to plant a tree for every million passenger trips taken by the Doha Metro until 2030.
During the event, which took place in Al Gharrafa Air-Conditioned Park, officials from Qatar Rail and Public Parks Department at the Ministry of Municipality participated in planting 91 trees, representing 91 million passenger trips on the Doha Metro since June 2021.
In the previous year's World Environment Day celebration in 2021, Qatar Rail had planted 28 trees, represented 28 million passenger trips since the launch of the Doha Metro services in May 2019.
Qatar Rail works closely with various stakeholders in the country to raise awareness about environmental and sustainability issues, providing opportunities for community members to contribute to building a sustainable future by using eco-friendly transportation options such as Doha Metro, thereby reducing the negative impact of traditional transportation methods.
Through its various initiatives and activities, Qatar Rail coordinates with its partners to adopt and implement sustainable social and environmental initiatives that contribute to achieving the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
