Leading sustainability organisations and environmental advocates have stepped up their efforts to advance Qatar’s sustainability movement by supporting the Qatar Green Building Conference (QGBC) 2016 – The Action.
The second annual QGBC conference will bring together leading environmentalists, academics, and sustainability experts to discuss Qatar’s sustainability agenda and long-term objectives.
The event, which takes place from November 13 to 15 at the Qatar National Convention Centre, will tackle some of the key environmental and social sustainability challenges in Qatar and beyond, focusing on three overarching themes: ‘Future Sustainable Cities’, ‘Green Business is Good Business’ and ‘Sustainability as a Lifestyle’.
Msheireb Properties, a subsidiary of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, has this year signed up as the conference’s platinum sponsor. The real estate company’s projects are redefining urban living by encouraging social interaction, preservation of Qatar’s heritage and culture, and consideration for the environment.
Meshal al-Shamari, director, QGBC, said, “The Qatar Green Building Conference provides a unique platform for industry stakeholders to showcase their sustainability goals to a broader audience. The conference is designed to provide participants with a platform to debate topical sustainability issues while receiving invaluable insights from leading practitioners and academics.”
Abdulla al-Mehshadi, chief executive officer, Msheireb Properties, said, “We are both proud and emboldened to be sponsoring the Qatar Green Building Conference 2016. This platform symbolises a principal opportunity to align two Qatari organisations that are on the vanguard of technological advances in the establishment and revitalisation of urban centres and the modernisation of Qatar and to transform the way that people think.”
QGBC conference has received endorsements from a number of prestigious organisations, including the British Standards Institutions, The Chartered Institute of Building, Engineers Australia, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and Middle East Facility Management Association.
