REDUCING WASTE

The QFC Regulatory Authority operates a secure and confidential office environment, shredding its confidential waste.  This shredded waste is processed and then recycled by a local company.  Further as part of the QFC Authority’s environmental programme, the QFC Regulatory Authority ports its waste at the source to facilitate the recycling of waster at a central location.
