Hamad International Airport (HIA) announced its cooperation with Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA), represented by the National Program for Conservation & Energy Efficiency Tarsheed, to launch the One Degree Makes a Difference campaign for energy saving, as part of the Qatar National Strategy 2018-2022 objectives for saving resources through conservation and energy efficiency to achieve 8% per capita decrease of electricity consumption by 2022.
This initiative is based on the MoU signed between them, in the spirit of Qatar’s Sustainability Week.
In November, HIA has increased the AC temperature by one degree for duration of two months, demonstrating simple tactics that conserve energy and benefit the environment. Awareness videos and visuals are on display throughout HIA’s terminal, encouraging travelers to participate in environmentally-conscious practices.
