​Taking action on climate change  


Climate change is one of the most significant global challenges facing our planet — a challenge requiring collaborative and coordinated action, as well as investment at local, regional and global levels. QatarEnergy is committed to playing its part. Our sustainability strategy and actions are guided and informed by the State of Qatar’s commitment to the Paris Agreement, as reflected in the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030 and the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP). As one of the largest producers and suppliers of natural gas, we recognize the important role we can play in global efforts rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support the transition to a low-carbon energy system. In addition to supplying lower-carbon natural gas, we are investing in the development of new low-carbon businesses and solutions that can help reduce carbon emissions across value chains.​


Climate Change Targets


QatarEnergy is fully committed to reducing emissions throughout the entire value chain. We recognize the importance of addressing both Scope 1 and 2 emissions, and we have implemented active and passive measures to achieve this goal. One of our main strategies involves improving energy efficiency to minimize our carbon footprint. We are working diligently to achieve our goal of zero routine flaring and are actively reducing methane emissions by targeting a 0.2% intensity rate across all our operations. Our comprehensive approach to assessing all potential sources of emissions ensures significantly reducing our impact on the environment.

In addition to our own efforts, we are assisting our partners in navigating the energy transition and continue to look for innovative solutions to reduce emissions across our industry. Furthermore, we are committed to expanding our carbon capture and storage (CCS) capacity to over 11 million tons per annum (MTPA) of CO2 by 2035 as part of our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.​

 

5C approach to implementation


We aim to meet our climate change targets through the implementation of “5Cs”: consolidate, curb, create, compensate and circulate.



Environmental Action​


As a responsible corporate citizen, we recognize the importance of safeguarding and preserving Qatar’s natural resources. We acknowledge the urgent need to address environmental challenges, such as the depletion of resources and loss of biodiversity. Through our actions and collaborations, we contribute to a more sustainable future for our country and the world at large.

​Maintaining a healthy atmosphere and reducing air pollution is crucial for promoting the well-being of society and local communities. At QatarEnergy, we understand the significance of managing emissions and air pollutants in ensuring good air quality. Our steadfast dedication to adhering to national air quality standards is in line with our sustainability framework, policies and strategy.
​We recognize the challenges of operating in a region with high water stress. As a responsible organization, we are dedicated to identifying and implementing solutions that enhance water use efficiency and conservation. Our commitment to protecting freshwater resources and restoring ecological balance in marine environments is embedded in our environmental policies. We believe in developing sustainable solutions that minimize our impact on water resources while maintaining operational excellence. By prioritizing water conservation and efficiency measures, we are taking proactive steps towards creating a more sustainable future for our communities. We will continue to explore innovative approaches to conserve freshwater resources and maintain ecological balance, while striving to achieve our operational goals. 
​At QatarEnergy we believe waste should not be viewed as a burden, but rather as a potential resource. Our vision is to shift from waste management to resource management. We see the waste generated across our operations as a valuable renewable resource. Our goal is to follow the waste hierarchy of preferred waste management options, which prioritizes waste prevention, product reuse, material segregation and recycling, resource and energy recovery and proceeds with safe disposal. This approach helps to reduce environmental impact and contributes to mitigating global warming.
​Biodiversity plays a crucial role in Qatar’s heritage, culture and future. It provides the foundation for food security and sustainable agricultural development by supplying essential resources such as food, medicine, clothing, housing, energy and raw materials. The country’s National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan acknowledges that natural habitats also serve as vital ecosystem services, which help mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing excess flood water, acting as barriers against coastal degradation and protecting against extreme weather events.
