Qatar Airways Launches New Waste Reduction and Recycling Programme

Qatar Airways and Qatar Aircraft Catering Company (QACC) have launched a new waste reduction and recycling programme in Doha.

Over the past three months Qatar Airways and QACC have recycled 266 tonnes of materials including cardboard, plastic wrapping and a variety of plastic containers. These materials have been collected by two local firms for recycling, along with 6,300 litres of cooking oil which will be converted into biodiesel.

 QACCs focus on reducing waste is a core part of Qatar Airways commitment to the environment. Our promise to provide travellers with the highest quality service extends to delivering sustainable and environmentally responsible services across our global network. Recycling not only delivers efficiencies but reduces environmental impacts arising from waste disposal and the consumption of natural resources, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. Qatar Airways and QACC recognise that through the provision of support and investment, our local recycling supply chain can evolve to further drive environmental change in Qatar and provide an excellent revenue opportunity for local commerce.

QACC operates a state-of-the-art facility providing premium inflight and lounge catering services to passengers travelling on the national airlines global network and utilising HIA lounges.
