Doha Bank has begun to issue a Visa-branded credit card designed to appeal to consumers interested in preserving the environment, the Qatar-based bank says in a statement. The "Go Green" card is made from biodegradable material, the bank says. Doha says it will convert 1% of all cardholder spending into "green" points that will result in donations to environmental groups and efforts, such as those that support tree planting in Qatar and environmental education for children. Bank officials offered no immediate comment.
