​​​​​​​​​​Sustainable investing at QIA ​ 


QIA aims to ensure that sustainability principles are embedded across our activities. We believe that investing sustainably enhances the performance and resilience of our investment portfolio.  Moreover, it aligns with our mandate to create value for Qatar’s​​ future generations, and with the goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
QIA aspires to invest sustainably and responsibly by:  


  • Taking a long-term view in our decision-making
  • Integrating ESG factors, both at portfolio and corporate levels
  • Supporting our investments to positively impact the world


QIA aims at generating sustainable impact through its investments, spanning from renewable energy and energy storage to environmentally-friendly real estate and electric vehicles. 

Fifty percent of our power generation investments have zero carbon emissions, and the size of renewables in QIA’s infrastructure power generation assets has expanded to 46%. In January 2020, QIA announced that it would no longer deploy new investments in hydrocarbons.  

QIA will continue to direct its capital to sustainable business models across the globe and will periodically review and evolve its Sustainable Investing approach as a result of evolving ESG norms and practices and the State of Qatar’s national goals and ambitions.​​

QIA is contributing to a sustainable future by taking leadership role in global initiatives. 

We engage with relevant global institutions and authorities to drive positive change.

In November 2020, QIA, through its involvement in the One Planet Sovereign Wealth Fund initiative, pledged its support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). ​​  ​
