GORD pushes climate agenda at COP27
At COP27’s Green Zone and Blue Zone, GORD’s delegation of sustainability and climate experts, led by Founding Chairman Dr. Yousef Alhorr, are offering insightful presentations and panel discussions. Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Dr. Alhorr said, “As an entity pushing the climate agenda for more than a decade, our participation at COP27 is driven by the need to accelerate sustainable solutions at scale and speed. We are here to highlight Qatar’s green initiatives, projects and success stories that GORD is proud and honored to be part of. At the same time, we look forward to widening the reach and scope of our sustainability efforts by exploring cross-sector synergies with leading organizations operating regionally and globally.”
During the event, experts from GORD are delivering a range of seminars, panel discussions and product demonstrations, followed by Q&As and networking at GORD Pavilion designed to provide a mix of knowledge exchange activities and networking opportunities with a range of facilities including conference space, meeting room and exhibition space. Key focus areas covered as part of these multistakeholder engagements include green building best practices, RDI in the field of sustainable built environment, smart solutions to catalyze energy transition, green finance and ESG strategies and compliance.
This year, GORD’s participation at the global climate event is also marked by the launch of Destination Green Program – a multistakeholder initiative gathering organizations to share their unique stories in the field of sustainability by showcasing them at international platforms such as COP27. Joining the initiative with GORD are leading entities including Baladna Food Industries, Dukhan Bank and Qatar National Bank (QNB).
