QGBC was launched in 2009 by Qatar Foundation to promote and equip a sustainable building industry for Qatar, thus responding to Qatar National Vision 2030’s call for sustainable development and environmental protection. Qatar Green Building Council is driving sustainable growth in Qatar through education and networking programmes, demonstrating commitment to a prosperous and sustainable future through cost-efficient and environment-friendly building-practices. We operate along three pillars: technical expertise development, research and innovation, and sustainability education and training. QGBC, a non-profit organization, depends on the strength of its members and volunteers to promote and achieve its vision in the best way possible. Since its founding in 2009, QGBChas developed a relatively large network of members who take on various responsibilities including volunteering, supporting QGBC by steering the agendas of the various interest groups, driving sustainability initiatives, providing support at events, and conducting education outreach initiatives.
