Qatar Sustainability Week grants stakeholders from the public and private sectors an opportunity to promote the nation’s sustainability vision and address society’s understanding of and attitude towards the concept. It will also highlight the key role the wider community plays in advancing Qatar’s long-term ‘green’ agenda.

Qatar Green Building Conference 2017, the week’s flagship event, will also run from October 29 - 31. The third edition of the conference will bring together industry leaders and sustainability experts to address and showcase their innovative solutions to Qatar’s, as well as the region’s, environmental challenges.

The inaugural Qatar Sustainability Week in 2016 was a resounding success with more than 10,000 members of the public attending over 100 events held across three cities in Qatar. Additionally, more than 300 delegates from 51 countries attended the second Qatar Green Building Conference, which hosted 74 renowned speakers and 17 exhibitors over the three-day summit.
