Driven to support the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the global oil and gas industry, the Al-Attiyah Foundation firmly embraces its ongoing responsibility to deliver on its mission: to provide robust and practical knowledge and insights, on global energy and sustainable development topics, to the Foundation’s Members and community.
