GORD is a part of the regulation in Qatar for sustainability rating of buildings and so we plan to train our engineers on this system. We hope to collaborate on multiple fronts and participate in the upcoming Sustainability Summit 2017 by extending the invitation to all our members as well as all our partner organizations.”

Dr. Yousef Alhorr also commented, “We are looking forward to strengthen this partnership so that all stakeholders can benefit from it. Empowering Qatari engineers and other professionals with the latest knowledge and tools of sustainability is definitely key to its implementation at all levels and to achieving our vision.”
