The Founding Organizations are prominent organizations operating in Qatar and representing diverse sectors that wish to be part of the rapidly growing movement towards green and environment friendly building and play a major role in aiding the legislations on sustainability in Qatar through strategic counsel. Founding Organizations share the council’s long term vision and can be instrumental in its growth.
Founding Organizations contribute with a larger initial founding membership fee covering three years. Their contribution is an essential element to help QGBC in achieving its overarching goals.
As a Founding Organization, your company demonstrates its credibility, green credentials and leadership in sustainability and in supporting education to regenerate and sustain healthy communities throughout Qatar. By contributing a onetime founding membership fee, your company/organization will enjoy the honor and status of a ‘Founding Organization’ and will be recognized for their support and get the most exposure to their brand, products and services.
The criteria of accepting Founding Organizations are the same as those of standard corporate/organization members but subject to membership committee review regarding:
- Type, relevance, importance of industry or commerce and capability to provide professional and strategic counsel that will aid decision making and legislation on Green Building
- Acceptance of Founding Membership Fee that covers three years and payment of Standard Membership annual fee thereafter (after the initials three years)
