Global air carrier, Qatar Airways Cargo is continuing to perform sustainability related ‘positive and impactful actions’ as part of its WeQare programme.
The actions are being implemented in the carrier’s cargo handling business and aim to make the its operations more sustainable.
The first ‘chapter’ of WeQare took place in July last year, when in response to the cornavirus outbreak, the carrier provided one million kg of free cargo capacity for charities to transport medical supplies and humanitarian aid from July to December last year.
The Doha-hubbed airline said the second chapter of WeQare will be announced this month.
Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airway’s Chief Cargo Officer stated, “It’s a very ambitious project. Through We Qare, we are implementing a series of concrete actions that are based on the four fundamental aspects of sustainability (the economy, the environment, society and culture) and that are tailored to our activities and to our everyday experiences. With We Qare, Qatar Airways Cargo hopes to create a sense of fulfilment within our industry — whether by supporting charities, reducing our carbon footprint, fighting to protect wildlife, or promoting equality, diversity, young people and culture.”
