Our ambition

 

 

At QNB corporate sustainability is the delivery of long-term value in financial, environmental, social and ethical terms. As a growing international bank, QNB Group plays an important role in contributing to financial stability and economic growth in the markets where we operate, while also helping shape the future of the communities we serve.

 

There is now increasing demand from investors, customers, regulators and our own employees for greater transparency of our approach to sustainability, and we recognize our unique position to deliver a significant positive impact, especially through our financing activities.

By taking a positive and proactive approach to sustainability QNB Group are able to:

 

  • Reduce risk – by integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into our operations and financing, steering us away from hazardous actions that contradict our commitment to sustainability;

     
  • Drive value creation – by recognizing the business opportunities that come from supporting the global sustainable development goals;

     
  • Improve operational efficiency – by focusing on resource efficiency in our operations and enforcing effective governance to support this;

     
  • Strengthen our brand – by addressing and continuously improving our approach to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and ethical business practices.

     

For these reasons, we have created a comprehensive sustainability programme to maximize the shared value we generate for our business and our stakeholders now and for the long term.

 

 

Our commitments

We are committed to the objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals and have developed our sustainability framework in alignment with these international and national standards. Furthermore, we commit to disclosure our ESG performance to the Qatar Stock Exchange, who became a signatory to the UN Sustainable Stock Exchange Initiative and released its ESG guidance to encourage voluntary ESG reporting by listed companies

 Qatar Stock Exchange - ESG performance disclosure

 

In 2016, the Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) subscribed to the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative and subsequently issued voluntary guidelines for reporting Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) information by listed companies in Qatar. QNB are committed to supporting the QSE by making ESG reporting a common practice and through communicating our performance on the set of key performance indicators (KPIs) recommended within the guidelines.

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The UN SDGs are the global framework for what matters to society, and all businesses are challenged to act. The 17 goals aim to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change.
