THE NEW TECH MANTRA

Qatar Today - - DEVELOPMENT > TECH TALK -

ROYAL DIG­I­TAL MAY BE FAR FROM SIL­I­CON VAL­LEY, BUT JUST LIKE ANY TECH COMPANY WORTH ITS SALT, IT WANTS TO MAKE THE WORLD A BET­TER PLACE. SUS­TAIN­ABLE TECH IS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RD COIN. “THE FU­TURE LIES IN FA­CIL­I­TAT­ING PROD­UCTS THAT LESSEN THE EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL IM­PACT AND ALSO TOUCH PEO­PLE'S LIVES. SURE WE WANT TO MAKE MONEY BUT WE ALSO WANT TO MAKE A DIF­FER­ENCE. OB­VI­OUSLY THE TVS WE MAKE WON'T IM­PACT THE LIVES OF THE POOR­EST PEO­PLE ON THE PLANET.

BUT OUR OTHER PROJECTS WILL - WE ARE WORK­ING ON MAK­ING SO­LAR LAMPS AND FANS WIDELY AVAIL­ABLE TO THOSE LIV­ING IN PLACES WITH UN­RE­LI­ABLE OR EX­PEN­SIVE ELEC­TRIC­ITY SUP­PLY. WE WERE IN TALKS WITH SEV­ERAL WEST AFRICAN

COM­MU­NI­TIES BE­FORE THE EBOLA OUT­BREAK AND WE ARE KEEN TO GET THIS PROJECT OFF THE GROUND AT THE

EAR­LI­EST,” HE SAYS.
