GORD joins Qatar CSR Summit as Climate Resilience Partner

The Gulf Organisation for Research and Development (GORD) recently joined Qatar CSR Summit as the Climate Resilience Partner. The event, held from April 30 to May 2, 2024, at Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC), focused on a range of themes linked with corporate social responsibility, including environmental sustainability and climate action.

Organized by Qatar University as part of Qatar CSR National Program, the second edition of the summit underscored the significance of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Qatar. Gathering industry leaders, academics, and stakeholders to discuss CSR practices, it provided a platform for discussions on aligning economic, social and environmental objectives with operational strategies.

Given the escalating challenges posed by climate change, businesses worldwide are increasingly recognizing that integrating sustainability into core strategies is no longer just optional, but essential to limit global warming and progress towards a low-carbon future. In this context, GORD’s participation at the summit was motivated by its commitment to climate resilience and to connect with stakeholders invested in sustainable practices. With dedicated centers and spinouts, GORD facilitates organizations in achieving their CSR objectives while advancing sustainability across various sectors in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
