The Ministry of Trade and Business has welcomed RasGas’ support as their diamond sponsor of this year’s annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), conference to be held on October 3-4, at a special event held at the Ministry. In a press release, RasGas said that it recognises this conference as one of Qatar’s quality initiatives to support sustainable development in Qatar and increase awareness of the importance of corporate citizenship in commercial activities. Speaking at the event, Abdulla Hashim, RasGas Public Affairs Manager, acknowledged the conference as a positive example of successful collaboration between national authorities and the business world, as a means to support the development of a sustainable society and to encourage the sharing of experiences and ideas enabling all companies to operate a strong and effective CSR programme. Attending the event with Abdulla Hashim were Safia al-Hajri, Head of Internal Corporate and Community Relations, along with the RasGas CSR team; Ahmed al-Marzouki, Head of Ministry of Business and Trade CSR Committee and Abdulla al-Kuaither, Public Relations Manager at the Ministry. Also joining them was Mohamed Jassim al-Muslimani, President of the Qatar Institute of Directors, who has worked closely with the ministry to establish a proposal for publishing the principals and criteria of CSR in Qatar. Al-Marzouki confirmed the CSR Conference as a perfect opportunity to gain from diverse CSR experiences, find inspiration and learn from international and national best practices. “Qatar is becoming a real regional hub for sustainability and social responsibility, and we are proud to once again have RasGas’ support, a company that has proven to be a committed partner in the development of Qatar’s human capital,” he said.
