Created to enable international collaborations to drive sustainability, the Green Economy Partnership (GEP)  has announced that its new headquarters will be situated in Doha.

The body aims to raise its impact on global climate initiatives under the chairmanship of Sheikh Mansoor Jabor Al Thani, director of the Government Communications Office, Qatar.

It will drive increased collaboration with governments and support the implementation of CO2 removal projects that fall under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

GEP also advocates for comprehensive strategies beyond offsets alone. In line with the Oxford Principles for Net Zero Aligned Carbon Offsetting and other international initiatives, the organisation advises companies to include carbon dioxide removal in their net-zero strategies.

“Green Economy Partnership was established to create global collaborations that exceed the nominal value of the transactions. We actively work with governments, advising and driving the development of afforestation, reforestation, and revegetation projects. Our mission also focuses on bolstering social and economic wellbeing alignment with Qatar is meant to create the blueprints for the implementation of a robust framework for the hard-to-abate sector in utilising internationally transferable mitigation outcomes in alignment with countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs),” said Al Thani.

The establishment of GEP’s new headquarters in Doha signals a commitment towards operationalising net zero strategies in the private sector in an economically viable way.

“Qatar’s rapid strides in sustainability are commendable, and GEP’s presence in Doha is a testament to the country’s dedication to achieving its sustainability plans. The international office in Qatar will serve as a hub for collaborative efforts, bringing together diverse stakeholders to address the pressing challenges of our time,” said Arthur Chirkinien, CEO of Green Economy Partnership.

“We identify carbon removal suppliers from various methodologies and provide them with certification, assuring buyers that they meet our rigorous standards,” said Chirkinien.

He added: “Our innovative approach empowers businesses, including hard-to-abate industries, and individuals to take meaningful, measurable action against climate change.”
