Qtel was named as the winner of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) award at the CEO Middle East Awards 2009, at a ceremony held in Dubai. The award was presented to Qtel in recognition for its ongoing efforts to support CSR activity in its home market of Qatar, and for its success in extending its CSR strategy into regional and international markets, as the company has expanded its presence across 17 countries. Dr. Nasser Marafih, CEO of Qtel, said: “Qtel has long recognised that, as a company, we have an important responsibility to all the communities that we serve, and we have worked hard to ensure that CSR is built into every aspect of our strategy and activities. We are proud to receive this award and we remain committed to support activities that improve the lives of people everywhere.” The Corporate Social Responsibility Award was collected by Adel Al Mutawa, Executive Director, Group Communications, Qtel on behalf of Dr. Nasser. Qtel has organised its ongoing CSR strategy into five key pillars, under the core message “For Qatar, Hand in Hand,” which looks to prioritize its support for Education; Healthcare; Environmental Issues; Sport; and Social Welfare initiatives.
