The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a global management group that decodes global talent, ranked Qatar #1 in sustainability across the MENA region. This ranking is based on the Sustainable Economic Development Assessment (SEDA) showing each country’s ability to convert economic growth to well-being for their citizens. Well-being is assessed based on 10 factors in the economics, investments, and sustainability categories.
SEDA assessed 152 countries to determine that Qatar has progressed the most in sustainability over the past decade. This ranking works against the pattern that oil-rich countries perform worse than the average.
With infrastructure improvements, developing transnational alliances, the World Cup, and innovate at an all-time high, Qatar is standing out in the international community.
