Qatar : 2nd Green Building annual conference


Aspiring to tackle some of the key challenges on the topic of environmental and social sustainability, Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC) has announced its second annual conference. The conference will focus on three interesting themes, which are ‘Future Sustainable Cities’, ‘Green Business is Good Business’ and ‘Sustainability as Lifestyle’.

According to Meshal Al Shamari, Director of QGBC, last year’s conference was a true success as 500 leading experts discussed on sustainability and green buildings towards Qatar’s future vision. The 2016 conference, taking place at Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) from 13-14 November, will highlight and explore more feasible ways to translate the vision into reality. It will also offer a unique opportunity for delegates to study and debate the impact of sustainability within the a ‘Sustainability as a Lifestyle’ theme.

QGBC has been at the forefront of Qatar’s sustainability movement and has made substantial contributions to delivery the Qatar National Vision 2030. Throughout the years, QGBC’s team along with the esteemed members and volunteers have been working hard on an array of research, education and awareness projects which have led to tangible results on the community.
