Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer's Message
We are pleased to share our Sustainability Performance with accomplishments of 2019.
Despite a challenging year due to global slowdown and changing market dynamics, Qatar Steel continues to make enormous strides in advancing its sustainability initiatives.
Qatar Steel received the upgraded rating of “1 Rosette” from UK CARES becoming the first company in the Middle East and one of the four companies in the world to have received such recognition for the efforts taken towards Sustainable Development. We were recognized for our Health, Safety and Environmental initiatives by the World Steel Association and received the 2019 award for Safety and Health Excellence, as well as recognition for the CO2 data collection project. Additionally, our operational efficiency and sustainability efforts helped to achieve an increase in use of recycled input material totaling 591,591 metric tonnes. The training hours each employee receives per year has more than tripled since 2016 to an average of 24 hours per employee in 2019.
As we move forward, we will strive for continual improvement and are committed to transform QS to a “Leading High Performing Company” in the steel industry. We will do so with the same spirit of innovation that has defined
QS, recognizing our motto: “Building the future”.
