Qatar’s first green directory launched by Qatar Green Building Council

May 2015

Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), has launched the Qatar Green Directory, an online interactive platform, aimed at increasing awareness and education of green products and services in Qatar and the region.

The first of its-kind in the country, the Qatar Green Directory features a comprehensive search engine and database providing information and analysis about existing and new green building products and services provided in Qatar and the region.

The directory forms a major part of QGBC’s support of Qatar Foundation’s commitment to deliver the sustainability goals set out in the Qatar National Vision 2030 by raising awareness and promoting best practices in Qatar’s green building sector.

“The Qatar Green Directory is aimed at filling the existing gap between supply and demand in Qatar’s green buildings market. The directory will greatly help local manufacturers and distributors of green building materials make their products and services easily available and accessible to the industry,” said Engineer Meshal Al Shamari, QGBC Director.

Over the last month, the organisation has received over 1,000 listings from local and regional companies.
