We believe that building a conscious and responsible community that recycles creates not only benefits for the environment, but value for downstream industries as well.

Waste Free Environment Day


In collaboration with 35 supporting entities, QAPCO showed its dedication to encouraging the responsible use and proper disposal of plastic once again during this year’s Waste Free Environment Day (WFE) campaign.

The WFE is an environmental initiative launched by the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) that implements meaningful activities to increase both corporate and public awareness about the amount of plastic and other waste thrown away each year in the Gulf and to inspire everyone to reduce waste and to recycle.

As one of the founding members of the GPCA, Dr. Mohammed Yousef Al Mulla, QAPCO MD and CEO, has watched this initiative grow since its launch in the GCC in 2013.

In 2015, 1,500 volunteers of all ages helped collect 1,000 kilograms of waste on Al Wakra beach, with 80% of the plastic being sent to be recycled.

Education and awareness was also an integral part of the WFE campaign. 700 students participated in workshops that included lectures on environmental awareness. Other activities included, a recycling art gallery, green painting competition and performances by youth groups.
