Hamad International Airport (HIA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) to “develop and modernise the airport’s facilities by implementing effective methods of waste management.”
The MoU highlights the collaboration between MATAR, the Qatar Company for Airports Management and Operation, and MME for the management of different types of waste from HIA to the MME’s Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC).
The development of an integrated system for waste separation, safe transportation, recycling and disposal of waste, and the promotion of environmental awareness and culture of sustainability at HIA, are a few objectives of the MoU.
The strategic partnership is in line with the goals set in the Qatar National Vision 2030 to raise environmental awareness and foster sustainability in the region.
Eng. Badr Mohammed Al Meer, chief operating officer at HIA said:
“We, at HIA, are committed to optimising our airport operations by improving our environmental performance. We are delighted to continue to contribute to Qatar’s National Vision 2030 pillar of environmental development by entering this strategic partnership with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment to further enhance our waste management systems.”
