HSBC has signed an agreement to renew its partnership with Qatar Today Green Awards (QTGA) — Qatar’s first environmental awards. Under the agreement, signed by Robert De Gama, Deputy CEO, HSBC and Ravi Raman, Vice President, Oryx Advertising Company, HSBC will be the presenting partner for the 2009 and 2010 editions of QTGA. Launched last year with the aim of recognising and rewarding worthy environmental initiatives, the QTGA generated tremendous awareness and interest among the participating sectors. The awards recognise and promote initiatives across a broad spectrum of activities — from individual to collective efforts — of businesses, educational, medical, and government institutions, and individuals. The awards provide environmental groups with a platform to make a coordinated effort to create awareness and motivate participation in sustainable projects. “We have a dynamic corporate sustainability strategy with a strong focus on the environment. Supporting the Qatar Today Green Awards further extends our efforts to create awareness about the importance of these topics and we believe that through this partnership we can achieve our goals to support environmentally sensitive behaviour in the society,” said Robert De Gama, Deputy CEO of HSBC. “This year’s advertorial campaign follows the theme ‘One World One Choice,’ which echoes the fact that business houses must respond, responsibly and urgently. HSBC has become an integral part of this event and we value their commitment immensely,” said Ravi Raman, Vice President, Oryx Advertising Company. Companies and institutions that wish to apply for the various categories can log on to They can select the category to enter (multiple entries are allowed) and submit their case studies. A panel of eminent judges will evaluate each case and shortlist it for the second round. The winners will be announced in a live event scheduled later in the year, and all nominees will receive extensive coverage for their case studies and achievements.
