To reach this goal, we need to raise awareness levels about the importance of green built environments, both in the industrial and public spheres, which is what this MOU will address in due course.”

Al Jolo said: “It is an honour for us at QSE to team up with the prestigious QGBC in pursuit of such a noble cause. I am confident that our joint efforts to disseminate quality sustainability education will be of great value, not only to the construction industry, but to the general public as well.”
