In light of Qatar Green Building Council’s Sustainability Week, Astad recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Korea Energy Agency to further promote Astad’s commitment to best sustainable practices.
The MOU, which was signed at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) on Monday, paves the way for bilateral cooperation and joint strategic objectives aimed at “continuous knowledge sharing and the improvement of energy management strategies and energy efficiency for buildings”.
On the occasion, Astad chief executive officer Ali al-Khalifa said, “This agreement reflects our continued advocacy for sustainability within the construction industry. As founding members of the Qatar Green Building Council, this agreement is an additional step forward in Astad’s journey towards a more sustainable future.”
Astad’s head (sustainability) Sheikh Soud al-Thani said, “We look forward to working together with the Korea Energy Agency using a comprehensive approach through initiatives that encourage sustainable practices for green building design and development in Qatar.”
In-Taek Kim, Korea Energy Agency’s executive director, said, “As a global energy organisation, this MoU falls in line with our efforts to contribute to the transformation of Qatar into a low energy consumption society with a culture of efficient energy usage and we hope that, with Astad, we can enhance the energy efficiency of buildings and transportation.”
Since its establishment in 1980, Korea Energy Agency has been at the forefront of efficient and rational energy use in Korea, as a silent guardian of Korea’s sound economic development and better quality of life.
