The hotel, W Doha Hotel & Residences have been Green Key awarded since 2013. Other hotels in Qatar have expressed interest in achieving the prestigious Green Key label.

With Qatar Green Building Council reaching membership of the Foundation for Environmental Education, the organisation is now officially launching the work with Green Key. The Green Key management in Qatar will be changed to Qatar Green Building Council, and it is possible for all other hotels and tourism establishments in Qatar to apply for Green Key through Qatar Green Building Council. 

Finn Bolding Thomsen, International Green Key Director says: “I am very happy that Green Key is now offered to any hotel and tourism establishment in Qatar through Qatar Green Building Council. As the country is hosting the Football World Cup in 2022, it will offer the country a unique opportunity to showcase Qatar’s ambitions on sustainable development, including through having a range of hotels and tourism facilities in Qatar joining the Green Key programme. I would like to thank W Doha Hotels & Residence for being an important role model for other establishments in Qatar planning to join Green Key.”
