The ‘Sustainability Summit 2019’ (QSS) will be held on October 27 and 28, 2018 at St. Regis Doha-Qatar, under the patronage of Prime Minister and Interior Minister, H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani.
Sustainability Summit was conceived seven years ago and it is happening annually ever since. Over the years, Sustainability Summit has set the bar on global and regional stage, bringing industry specialists, policy makers and practitioners under one roof to discuss the promises and pitfalls of sustainability.
As a co-organizer of the summit, the Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD) has convened experts from all over the world to share insights, best practices and knowledge on multiple facets of sustainability. The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy and Qatari Diar Real Estate Company have collaborated as Host Sponsors. Qatar Foundation is the Green Transformation Partner and Shell representing the energy sector as the Eco Champion Partner of the summit. The Strategic Partners are the Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development, and Midea Global. Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) is the summit’s Knowledge Partner and Al-Taadhod Group is the Sustainability Partner. Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP) is on board as the Innovation Partner.
In line with Qatar National Vision 2030, QSS has planned to ramp up efforts towards climate change. The upcoming event will look at environmental challenges through a regional lens, while also sparking debates on ways forward to pursue sustainable development.
This year, GORD has revealed “Destination Green” as the overarching theme of its sessions that will encompass five key areas, namely built environment, earthly resources, energy & industries, transportation and green businesses. These five areas have been carefully thought out to cover a wide spectrum including the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
During the opening ceremony of the summit, GORD will present sustainability awards to projects and organizations that have demonstrated sustainability best practices over the years. There will be a number of regional and international organizations signing cooperation agreements with GORD to embark joint ventures towards sustainable development.
