The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Energy Awards will be presented at a VIP event at the Sheraton Grand Doha this evening.
The Al-Attiyah Foundation bestows one honorary award each year to an outstanding global energy leader for his/her exceptional impact on the energy industry with distinct personal achievements for a consistent and prolonged period. The 2019 accolade will be presented to Fu Chengyu, former chairman of Sinopec Group at the seventh edition of the Awards.
The evening will be attended by an exceptionally prestigious list of more 300 past and present leaders from industry, academia and government. In addition, many of the Foundation’s international award-winning alumni will be present.
The awards this year are supported by Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil, Shell, North Oil Company, Dolphin Energy, Qatar Airways and Total.
Previous beneficiaries of the honorary award include Lee Raymond, former chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil; Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, former chairman of Shell, and chairman of the UN Global Compact Foundation; Ali al-Naimi, Saudi Arabia’s former Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and Christophe de Margerie, late CEO of Total.
The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Energy Award is the foremost global honour to recognise individuals for their lifetime achievement in the advancement of the energy sector. There are a further six awards given each year to recognise individuals for their lifetime of achievement for the advancement of the Qatar energy industry; gas producer-consumer dialogue; education; renewable energy and international energy journalism. The nominees are reviewed and voted on by an international selection committee and evaluated for their impact, innovation, long-term vision and leadership.
Since its inception, the Al-Attiyah Foundation is committed to providing expert analysis and up-to-date insights on serious global, regional and country-specific challenges and opportunities on energy and sustainable development themes.
The themes are explored through publications including the Weekly Energy News, Monthly Sustainability Digest and the Energy Research Series.
Every quarter, the foundation invites the best global experts to Qatar to share their insights with members and partners during the ‘CEO Roundtable Series’.
The outputs of the roundtable are used to educate and support society as it transitions towards a sustainable energy future.
