Gulf Times Business - - BUSINESS -

In­ter­na­tional in­te­grated chem­i­cals and en­ergy com­pany, Sa­sol, an­nounced yes­ter­day the re­newal of its mem­ber­ship with the Ab­dul­lah Bin Ha­mad Al-At­tiyah In­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion for En­ergy and Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment.

The re­newal is part of Sa­sol’s in­ter­na­tional ef­forts to sup­port sus­tain­able devel­op­ment. It cements the strong re­la­tions and long­stand­ing part­ner­ship be­tween the two or­gan­i­sa­tions as they look to­wards a sus­tain­able fu­ture.

In line with the vi­sion of the foun­da­tion’s chair­man, HE Ab­dul­lah bin Ha­mad al-At­tiyah, the foun­da­tion’s on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship with Sa­sol helps to con­trib­ute to a greater un­der­stand­ing of en­ergy sus­tain­abil­ity and en­ergy mar­kets.

The Al-At­tiyah Foun­da­tion is the lead­ing in­de­pen­dent en­ergy and sus­tain­able devel­op­ment think-thank in Qatar and has be­come highly-re­spected by en­ergy lead­ers both in­ter­na­tion­ally and in Qatar.

Dr Ibrahim Ibrahim, the vice chair­man of the Al-At­tiyah Foun­da­tion, said, “We thank Sa­sol for its con­tin­ued sup­port for en­ergy sus­tain­abil­ity and its in­volve­ment in the Qatari and global com­mu­nity.

“We look for­ward to a con­tin­ued part­ner­ship as we en­deav­our to pro­vide knowl­edge and in­sights into global en­ergy and sus­tain­able devel­op­ment is­sues for the ben­e­fit of members and the so­ci­ety at large.”

Mau­rice Radebe, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent at Sa­sol, said, “HE Ab­dul­lah bin Ha­mad al-At­tiyah’s achieve­ments in the area of in­ter­na­tional en­ergy and sus­tain­able devel­op­ment ex­tend for more than 40 years.

“Sa­sol is proud to carry on this legacy and to con­trib­ute to the devel­op­ment of the so­ci­ety and the world en­ergy sec­tor. We thank AlAt­tiyah Foun­da­tion and look for­ward to fur­ther co-op­er­a­tion in the fu­ture.”

As an in­ter­na­tional in­te­grated chem­i­cals and en­ergy com­pany and a part­ner with Qatar Petroleum in the Oryx GTL ven­ture, Sa­sol turns spe­cial at­ten­tion to the en­ergy and sus­tain­able devel­op­ment sec­tor in Qatar and the world.

Sa­sol has also worked with AlAt­tiyah Foun­da­tion to of­fer oil and gas com­pa­nies in Qatar a train­ing work­shop on ac­ces­si­bil­ity aware­ness and ac­ces­si­bil­ity au­dit­ing through the use of the au­dit­ing smart­phone ap­pli­ca­tion launched by its ini­tia­tive Ac­ces­si­ble Qatar (AQ). The train­ing helps par­tic­i­pants un­der­stand in­ter­na­tional ac­ces­si­bil­ity stan­dards, key ac­ces­si­bil­ity fac­tors that should be ad­dressed when car­ry­ing out an ac­ces­si­bil­ity au­dit, po­ten­tial chal­lenges the dis­abled might face, and the tech­ni­cal as­pects of the au­dit.
