Sustainability
for People & Planet

According to the United Nations, the world’s population could reach 10 billion by 2050. However, human activity is stretching the earth’s resources while exacerbating global biodiversity loss and climate change threats. Our planet may not survive the next 30 years if we don’t start making sustainable choices.

RYTHM is committed to advancing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in every way possible, as it strives to reinforce the QI Group’s aspirations and responsibility to maintain the balance between our growing societies and the environment.

Pillars of Sustainability

Our goal is to positively impact the lives of the people and communities around us, and we do this by integrating sustainability into our every move.

Safeguarding the ENVIRONMENT

As global citizens, we have a responsibility to the planet to adopt better practices that sustain its limited resources for future generations.

Responsible Living

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Beyond driving awareness, the QI Group has actively integrated sustainable practices and policies in all their global offices to help reduce its environmental impact. We believe in fulfilling our responsibility to Mother Earth by playing an active role in the cycle of life and making conscious decisions.

#GoMeatFree

Animal agriculture severely strains many of the Earth’s finite land, water and energy resources.

The livestock industry is the world’s largest user of natural resources, and it generates more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation industry! 

We believe that going meat-free and embracing a plant-based economy is one of the most important steps we can take to help mitigate the harmful effects of the meat industry on the environment and help rehabilitate our planet. All QI Group offices and events have a meat-free policy as a conscious effort towards the sustainability of our planet and mankind.  

#GoPlasticFree

The QI Group has banned single-use plastic in our offices, events, and conventions. In addition, employees are actively encouraged to follow sustainable practices by eliminating plastic from their lifestyle and reusing and recycling more. The Group is also working towards improving our product packaging by switching to sustainable materials. But what happens to the harmful plastics we discard? What can we do to help? This video shows us the way.
