Recognizing its obligation to preserve the needs of future generations, Qatar Steel seeks to minimize the potential negative impact that its operations may have on the environment. To this end, the company monitors and evaluates its performance using the Environmental Management System, which was upgraded to the 2015 version of ISO 14001 and is fully compliant with all local regulations and regulatory bodies, including the Ministry of Municipalities and Environment.
Qatar Steel makes sure to integrate environmental sustainability across all departments and aspects of the company, and continuously seeks to improve its performance. This year, not only were internal audits conducted by Qatar Steel internal auditors, but in December, a UK CARES certification body also conducted an external audit, thus demonstrating the company’s commitment to adhering to global environmental standards. In alignment with the Qatar National Vision 2030, Qatar Steel’s long-term objective for sustainability is to improve the efficiency of overall business through constant innovation, while operating within the carrying capacity of supporting the ecosystems and the existing resources.
