The awards were an­nounced at the launch of the fourth an­nual re­port on Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment in the En­ergy and In­dus­try Sec­tor in Qatar and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing awards cer­e­mony for the best sus­tain­abil­ity re­ports. KAHRA­MAA Pres­i­dent Eng Essa bin Hi­lal Al Kuwari re­ceived the awards from HE Dr Mo­hammed bin Saleh Al Sada, Min­is­ter of En­ergy and In­dus­try.

HE Dr Saleh bin Mo­hammed Al Nabit, Min­is­ter of Devel­op­ment Plan­ning and Sta­tis­tics, HE Ahmed Bin Amer Al Hamidi, Min­is­ter of En­vi­ron­ment, Dr Ibrahim Al Ibrahim, Eco­nomic Ad­viser at the Emiri Di­wan, and Dr Sheikha bint Ab­dul­lah Al Missned, Chair­per­son of Qatar Univer­sity, se­nior officials of in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies work­ing in the field of en­ergy in Qatar, and other dig­ni­taries were present.

This is the first time KAHRA­MAA has taken part in the pro­gramme in which 36 com­pa­nies par­tic­i­pated with their re­ports on sus­tain­abil­ity, com­pared to only 12 last year. Kahra­maa's award win­ning re­port can be down­loaded from their web­site in both English and Ara­bic.

The re­port sheds light on ar­eas where KAHRA­MAA works to set its “Cul­ture of Per­for­mance”. By pro­vid­ing a trans­par­ent pic­ture of where it is at present and also its fu­ture com­mit­ments, the re­port aims to en­gage the com­pany's stake­hold­ers in a dis­cus­sion about their role in the de­liv­ery of Qatar's Na­tional Vi­sion 2030, which was launched and led by the wise guid­ance of the Emir, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad Al Thani.

The re­port was pro­duced by the Con­ser­va­tion and En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency (CN) De­part­ment with con­tri­bu­tion from every­one – start­ing with the un­lim­ited sup­port and as­sis­tance of Eng Essa bin Hi­lal Al Kuwari and all other di­rec­tors, man­agers, and fo­cal point rep­re­sen­ta­tives of all de­part­ments in KAHRA­MAA .

The re­port shows that it is mov­ing on the right track to achieve sus­tain­abil­ity. It also says KAHRA­MAA's op­er­a­tions must aid sus­tain­able devel­op­ment and its ac­tiv­i­ties ben­e­fit so­ci­ety and the en­vi­ron­ment. The re­port is aligned with best prac­tices to achieve the fol­low­ing: Re­port KAHRA­MAA's non-fi­nan­cial per­for­mance and com­mu­ni­cate the same to com­pany's stake­hold­ers; show its progress in con­tribut­ing to so­ci­ety and en­vi­ron­ment; bench­mark with sim­i­lar cor­po­ra­tions and set a roadmap for the power and util­ity sec­tor on sus­tain­abil­ity re­port­ing.

The five pri­or­ity ar­eas in tune with QNV 2030 are: Cus­tomer value cre­ation, re­source con­ser­va­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, in­vest­ing in our peo­ple, con­tribut­ing to the lo­cal econ­omy and also sup­port­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties
