Qatar Steel’s Environmental Management System (EMS) was developed since 1999 in alignment with ISO 14001. Implementation of this system ensures careful management of our environmental impact, largely achieved via our ‘Identification and Evaluation of Environmental Aspects’ policy. Additionally, Qatar Steel’s Environmental Monitoring Programme ensures compliance with all applicable external requirements and regulations, such as the Ministry of Environment (MoE)’s Consent to Operate, and provides Qatar Steel’s management with up-to-date information on the company’s environmental impact and mitigation.
Our HSE Department conducts a yearly internal audit of all concerned departments to ensure compliance with the EMS. The audits are conducted by certified internal auditors. Our Environmental Management System additionally lays out clear commitments to improving our environmental performance. These commitments include improving our efficient use of energy, reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, optimising our use of natural resources, and reducing and recycling waste generated from our operations.
