The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development and Qatar Shell signed a three-year agreement to develop independent research publications focusing on energy sustainability. The vision of the foundation is to become the leading think tank in the region and one of the leading institutions in the world in the areas of sustainable energy development.

The signing ceremony took place at the Al-Attiyah Foundation and was attended by its chairman, HE Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah, and Michiel Kool, managing director and chairman of Qatar Shell Companies.
Al-Attiyah said, “At the foundation we aim for inclusive and sustainable growth for future generations in Qatar. That is why we are delighted to collaborate with Qatar Shell to support Qatar’s quest to become a knowledge-based economy in which research plays a vital role in resolving emerging issues and furthering development.”
Kool said, “We are extremely proud to once again collaborate with The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development. This agreement builds on our long-standing partnership with the Foundation and allows us to work jointly on a topic of mutual interest and an issue of great relevance to society.
“At Qatar Shell we will continue to cooperate with academia, government, non-profit organisations and private sector partners to provide research and innovative solutions that will help mitigate and resolve energy challenges faced by Qatar, in turn delivering sustainable impact in support of the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
Shell is the largest international investor in Qatar having invested $21bn over the past decade.
As the anchor tenant of Qatar Science and Technology Park, Qatar Shell Research and Technology Centre continues to play a vital role in shaping the future of R&D in Qatar, through ground-breaking research and thought-leadership into energy and environmental challenges faced by Qatar. Its programme of dynamic collaborations with both the local and international academic community ensures QSRTC meets its mandate to add value to Pearl GTL and the State of Qatar, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.
