Qatar Post awarded best postal services

Qatar Postal Service Company (Qatar Post) has been recognized as the best postal services company in 2018 in the conservation and sustainable development sector.

The award was allotted to Qatar Post in recognition of its continuous efforts, programs, and initiatives towards energy conservation and dedication to reducing its own carbon footprint. The ceremony was held as a part of Expo 2019, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Chairman and Managing Director of Qatar Post, Faleh Al Naemi proudly accepted the award on behalf of Qatar Post, during a ceremony attended by over 200 postal services companies worldwide.

Within the context of raising awareness and transforming the nation’s consumption habits and behaviors, Hamad Al Fahida has launched several initiatives aimed at raising the profile for the need for environmental protection to both employees and customers, company-wide.

Within the field of reducing consumption of energy and water, Qatar Post has implemented programs to lower its overall consumption by replacing 80% of fluorescent lights with energy-saving LED lighting and by installing specialized devices to reduce the company’s water consumption by 30%.

Qatar Post deploys modern vehicles and utilizes intelligent devices to further reduce carbon emissions. In areas of high population density, utilising motorcycles as opposed to full-fledged trucks and vans is one way towards reducing the company’s carbon footprint. Additionally, the implementation of a vehicle tracking system (GIS) is work in progress, through the deployment of Application ORTEC.
