Solid waste is one of Qatar’s growing challenges that emerged from the current vast economic and urban development. The country has one of the highest per capita waste generation rates worldwide. As a result, the Qatar Second National Development Strategy (NDS2) has set a target to recycle 15% of solid waste by 2022 and highlighted the importance of the private companies in achieving such targets.

In the efforts to tackle recycling of solid waste in Qatar, QGBC engaged with Subject Matter Experts (SME) to develop a quality validation program that would provide quality assurance of solid waste recycling process. The program is to assess the Quality Management Systems (QMS) in place in the solid waste units against similar requirements to those of BS EN ISO 9001:2015 in general and clause 8.3. “Design and development of products and services” in particular.

Al Tadweer program provides scalable guidance for the recycling industry – through its interconnected stages and providers – to transparently ensure the quality of its process and deliverables. QGBC advocates for a sustainability conscious and driven solid waste management in parallel with educating stakeholders and the community about best practices, thus developing a new low-carbon culture of waste management at large.
