Who We Are

MISSION

SustainableQATAR is a think and do tank that raises awareness, creates actionable knowledge, and encourages connections and collaboration between individuals and groups for environmental sustainability. Founded in 2008, SustainableQATAR is an independent organization that actively engages members of the public, private, and government sectors to take environmental action.

VISION

We strive to build an educated, connected and engaged community and with our activities and programs to contribute to making this world a better place – a more sustainable Qatar that continuously grows toward regenerative development, (doing more good, instead of doing less bad) by diversifying into a self-sufficient economy that becomes net-positive – restoring vital ecosystems upon which we all depend for our survival.

GOALS

  • empower the community at large by developing ‘mind-changing’ solutions for climate adaptation – not because of natural resources limitations in the desert, but in spite of it.
  • provide a platform for networking to promote collaboration between diverse members of Qatar’s population to enhance environmental sustainability.
  • support the first-ever carbon neutral 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
  • as a signatory to the Paris Agreement, assist Qatar in reducing carbon emissions and contributing to a regenerative future where environmental sustainability becomes the motor for a healthy economy.

Why Our Work Matters 

We fully commit to making a difference in as many lives as possible, manifesting our words in our behaviors and actions. Through informed consumer choices we personally contribute to making the world more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable.

Our actionable knowledge combines Ecology, Equality and Equity which, together with strategic sustainability, are the drivers for innovations that will aid Qatar’s transition to a low-carbon knowledge-based economy that creates net-positive strategies to protect its people and fragile environment.

Small things done consistently are the big steps; when everyone participates, change is exponential. SustainableQATAR’s actionable knowledge goes beyond technical solutions and focuses on motivation, behavior and choice. One person at a time.
