Qatar Green Building Council Launches ‘How Green Is Your Home?’ E-Survey

As more than 120 world leaders gather at the United Nations Climate Summit in New York this week to set out ambitious targets for energy efficiency and sustainable development, Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC) is launching an e-survey encouraging residents in Qatar to share insight into their energy and water usage at home in order to ensure a greener future.

As the first e-survey of its kind in Qatar, QGBC’s latest initiative, the ‘How Green Is Your Home?’ e-survey, will gather information from Qatari citizens and expatriates over the next four weeks about how they use electricity, gas and water, in addition to their behaviors in using regular household appliances such as air conditioners, washing machines and televisions. The survey will be open for four weeks in order to gather as much information as possible.

QGBC is keen to better understand personal resource consumption in order to find solutions that will ease the country’s energy demands.

Available to read in both Arabic and English, the simple, five-minute e-survey poses questions about electricity consumption through food preparation, TV watching and use of other domestic appliances.

Anyone interested in taking part in QGBC’s nation-wide study can complete the ‘How Green Is Your Home?’ e-survey by visiting:

All entrants who leave a contact address will automatically be entered into a prize draw with the opportunity to win a mini-iPad and other spot prizes.
