On International Museum Day and in commemoration of QAIC’s June theme for Environment and Sustainability, the National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) was awarded the Green Key certification for its constant endeavors in implementing sustainability best practices. Through preserving and celebrating Qatar’s heritage since its opening in 2019, NMoQ achieved a myriad of sustainability awards, including the first museum in the world to receive both a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) Gold, a 4 Star GSAS (Global Sustainability Assessment System) sustainability rating and recognition in the International Beautiful Buildings Green Apple Awards 2022 organized by an international non-profit environmental group, the Green Organization.
Within the tourism industry, Green Key is a leading standard for excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operations. This prestigious eco-label signifies businesses’ commitment in their tourism establishments to comply to strict criteria set by the Foundation for Environmental Education. A Green Key symbolizes the promise to its guests that the establishment helps make a difference on an environmental level.
On the occasion of June’s theme for Environment and Sustainability, QAIC congratulates NMoQ for this prestigious achievement.
