WHEN SUS­TAIN­ABIL­ITY IS JUST PART OF THE BUSI­NESS

Qatar Today - - SPOTLIGHT -

District cool­ing has a crit­i­cal role to play in the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment and the Na­tional Vi­sion 2030. Qatar Cool com­mits to re­duc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal risks, preserving nat­u­ral re­sources and im­prov­ing eco­nomic growth and op­por­tu­ni­ties, en­sur­ing that the ex­pan­sion of its op­er­a­tions is un­der­taken in a sus­tain­able and re­spon­si­ble man­ner. Qatar Cool also aims at be­ing a re­spon­si­ble em­ployer and adopt­ing val­ues and stan­dards de­signed to help guide their staff in their con­duct and busi­ness re­la­tion­ships. The com­pany recog­nises its re­spon­si­bil­ity and in­tegrity in meet­ing best prac­tice bench­marks when in­ter­act­ing with its em­ploy­ees and stake­hold­ers.

For Qatar Cool, sus­tain­abil­ity is no longer just about do­ing busi­ness re­spon­si­bly – it is also about iden­ti­fy­ing key so­cial and sus­tain­abil­ity chal­lenges, and find­ing ways to work with oth­ers to re­solve them.

BE­ING A RE­SPON­SI­BLE AND SUS­TAIN­ABLE QATARI OR­GAN­I­SA­TION IS OF THE UT­MOST IM­POR­TANCE TO QATAR COOL, WHICH CON­TIN­U­OUSLY IM­PLE­MENTS IM­PROVE­MENTS TO THE EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL AND SO­CIAL IM­PACTS OF THEIR AC­TIV­I­TIES, WHILST EN­SUR­ING POS­I­TIVE BEN­E­FITS FOR ITS STAKE­HOLD­ERS.

Qatar Cool takes the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of district cool­ing very se­ri­ously. Whilst district cool­ing has min­i­mal en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact and en­ergy con­sump­tion com­pared to con­ven­tional cool­ing sys­tems, there are ad­di­tional method­olo­gies to fur­ther op­ti­mise en­vi­ron­men­tal sav­ings. District cool­ing plants are op­er­ated more ef­fi­ciently with less harm to the en­vi­ron­ment by elim­i­nat­ing such things as car­bon diox­ide, pos­si­ble gas leaks and noise pol­lu­tion. District cool­ing of­fers ma­jor en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits and al­lows us to econ­o­mize on nat­u­ral re­sources. Qatar Cool con­trib­utes sub­stan­tially to the en­vi­ron­ment; the com­pany has elim­i­nated
