The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has announced the opening of the submission entries for the Green Award for year 2020, which is now expanded to include all the contractors of Ashghal’s on-going projects under the Project Affairs, and is no longer limited to the projects within Ashghal’s Roads Projects Department (RPD).

The expansion of the initiative is aligned with Ashghal’s continuous improvement strategy and its commitment to raise the bar on the implementation of the best international practices for Environmental permitting, processes & procedures in Ashghal and the construction industry.

The Green Award is an annual award event launched in 2018 by Ashghal’s Quality and Safety Department (QSD) and Roads Projects Department (RPD), developed to encourage contractors and consultancies in construction stage to adopt the best practices for environmental & sustainability measures, targeting all aspects including air quality management, ground water recycling, carbon emissions reduction, material recycling, and cost efficiency.

The initiative aims to assess the effectiveness of sustainability management across projects under implementation, and reward companies with outstanding and continuous performance on Projects. The initiative also aims to identify distinguished sustainability practices on site, and share innovations and practical solutions with others for adoption on a wider scale.

The time-table for this year’s event has been formally released by Ashghal’s QSD on 12th July 2020 and the applications are requested to be submitted by 31 August 2020.

A selection committee will be established with the representatives from Ashghal’s QSD and representatives from departments of Projects Affairs. The selection committee will review all applications and shortlist a number of projects for the Green Award 2020. The shortlisted projects will be visited on site and called for a 15-minutes presentation each. Following the site visits and presentations, the selection committee will confirm the date of the awards ceremony where the winners of the Overall Green Award and Special Recognition Awards for Year 2020 will be announced.

The Green Award Initiative by Ashghal has proven to be a great success, and has been awarded as the “Best Government Initiative” for Sustainability policy by the Qatar’s Green Building Council 2019 and recently short listed for the 2020 Sustainability Impact Awards by British Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), in the Sustainability Campaign for Public Sector category.
