  • Qatar 2022 will be the first carbon-neutral FIFA World Cup™ in history

    SC taking climate action as set out in Qatar 2022 Sustainability Strategy . When Qatar was awarded the right to stage the first FIFA World Cup™ in the Middle East and Arab world, it not only committed to organising an amazing tournament – but also a mega-event delivered in a sustainable manner. In January 2020, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), FIFA and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC (Q22) published the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Sustainability Strategy. It was the f­irst such strategy to be planned and delivered jointly by FIFA, the host country and local organisers. Part of the strategy includes the delivery of the first carbon-neutral FIFA World Cup™ in the history of the event. To achieve this, all infrastructure projects – including the eight stadiums that will be used for Qatar 2022 – must meet stringent sustainability benchmarks. “From the beginning, our preparation efforts for Qatar 2022 have been undertaken with the goal of building a sustainable and lasting legacy,” said Engineer Abdulrahman Al Muftah, the SC's Sustainability & Environment Expert. “The sustainability initiatives we have implemented in our projects contribute to Qatar National Vision 2030 and will also have a positive impact on the way future World Cups and other large-scale sporting events are organised around the world.” When the SC, Q22 and FIFA set out its carbon-neutral objectives, several key areas were identified in their planning. Staging the most compact version of the World Cup in modern history was one important feature. “Achieving carbon-neutrality is a process made up of four key components,” added Al Muftah. “Firstly, it required raising awareness among key stakeholders, including the general public. This was followed by us creating a detailed estimation of what our carbon footprint will be. The third step is the one that most people will hear about, and that is the measures taken to limit carbon emissions, which will lead us to the final part of the process, which is investing in green projects that will offset any of the remaining emissions associated with Qatar 2022.” Many of the measures taken to reduce carbon emissions are centered around the compact nature of the tournament. Fans, players and officials will fly into one airport and stay in one accommodation during the tournament. With the longest distance between stadiums just 75km, fans will have the opportunity to attend at least two matches in a single day during the group stage, thanks to five of the stadiums being connected to the Doha Metro and the other three accessible by connecting bus services. The SC has also worked with the hotel sector in Qatar to encourage green practices to reduce carbon emissions from accommodation. The compact nature of Qatar 2022 will not only provide convenience for fans and an optimal performance environment for participating teams, it also eliminates the carbon footprint of domestic air travel that fans, players and officials were required to do to attend matches in previous World Cups. With air travel being recognised as one of the world’s largest sources of carbon emissions, this will undoubtedly have a significant impact on reducing the tournament’s carbon footprint. “The close proximity of our venues will see many people use our public transport infrastructure during Qatar 2022, particularly the impressive Doha Metro system,” said Al Muftah. “Even our light rail trams and fuel-efficient bus fleet will play an important contribution in mitigating carbon emissions, with a number of electric buses being deployed for the event.” Reducing carbon emissions was also factored into the building of Qatar 2022 venues – most notably the eight World Cup stadiums. Careful consideration was given during the design and construction of the stadiums for lower energy and water consumption, the reusing and recycling of water and materials wherever possible, highly efficient cooling systems, the use of renewable energy for lighting in some stadiums, creating designs that allows for natural light, native trees and plants in stadium parklands, and efficient waste management strategies. All eight stadiums which will be used during Qatar 2022 have been built to be water and energy efficient. Many of the stadiums have exceeded industry ratings by implementing non-mandated requirements for sustainability. One such example is Ras Abu Aboud Stadium. The 40,000-capacity venue will be the first fully dismountable stadium in FIFA World Cup™ history, with its components being used to create other sporting projects during legacy mode. This pioneering approach will set new benchmarks in waste reduction. Another key component to achieving carbon-neutrality will be the use of solar energy to help power Qatar during the tournament. Qatar is currently developing a large-scale 800MW solar energy plant on a 10km² plot. Once the tournament concludes, the plant will continue to produce clean renewable energy for decades, leaving a significant legacy as a carbon reduction project. These initiatives will leave an important sustainability legacy for Qatar and the region and provide an invaluable blueprint for the use of sustainable practices in future sporting events held around the world.

  • Mga Proseso sa Paglipat sa Ibang Kumpanya

    May katotohanan po bang nirebisa ang Qatar law na ito dahil inaalmahan ng mga empolyer dito sa Qatar?

  • Mga Proseso sa Paglipat sa Ibang Kumpanya

    Nitong Agosto 31, 2020 ay naglabas ng bagong batas ang Amir ng Qatar, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani na kinabibilangan ng Law No. 18 of 2020) na nag-aamyenda sa kaukulang probisyon ng Law No. 14 of 2004 (Qatar Labor Law) at Law No. 19 of 2020 na nag-aamyenda sa mga kaukulang probisyon ng Law No. 21 of 2015 (Residency Law) - ang parehong batas ay nagbabalangkas ng mga probisyon at paraan para sa paglipat ng isang manggagawa sa ibang kumpanya na mas pinadali at tumatanggal sa tinatawag na No Objection Certificate (NOC). Nailathala ang mga nasabing batas sa Official Gazette noong Setyembre 9, 2020 at nagkabisa na isang araw matapos ang petsa ng pagkakalathala nito. Sa dating batas bago ang nasabing pag-amyenda, ang isang manggagawa ay makakalipat lamang sa ibang kumpanya ng di na kailangan ang NOC kung natapos na nito ang termino ng kanyang kontrata, o kaya ay ang paglipat nito ay desisyon mismo ng kinauukulan bilang resulta ng napatunayang pang-aabuso ng employer. Maraming mga OFWs sa Qatar ang maaaring may tanong o kaya ay hindi pa alam ang mga proseso na dapat gawin upang makalipat sa ibang kumpanya ng maayos at naaayon sa batas. Narito ang mga dapat gawin: Mag download ng Change Employer Form mula sa website ng Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA), fill-upan at pirmahan ito. Punan ang mga impormasyon tungkol sa sarili (Personal Info) na nasa bandang taas ng form, ang sa bandang baba naman ay mga impormasyon tungkol sa magiging bagong employer. Tiyakin na tama ang mga impormasyong iyong isusulat sa form. Papirmahan at palagyan ng stamp ang Form sa magiging bagong employer. Para naman sa mga kasambahay, hindi na kailangan ang computer card at stamp sa form. Mag login sa e-Services page ng MADLSA upang e submit itong Form (application). Tiyakin na tama ang impormasyong iyong isusulat sa online submission katulad ng iyong QID at mobile number na dapat nakapangalan ang simcard sa'yo. Hintayin ang confirmation ng MADLSA within one week, matapos nitong ma-proseso ang iyong application. Magsesend ito ng notification sa'yo at sa'yong current employer para sa notice period. Kung ang iyong application ay hindi kompleto, makakatanggap ka rin ng notification tungkol dito at kung ano pang mga impormasyon o dokyumento ang kailangan mong e submit. Sa puntong yan, ang mga susunod na proseso ay gagawin na ng iyong magiging bagong employer, tulad ng mga sumusunod: Kapag natapos na ang notice period, tutuloy na sa pagproseso ng employment contract ang iyong magiging bagong employer sa pamamagitan ng digital certification services ng MADLSA. Kapag tapos na ang certification ng employment contract, tutuloy na ang iyong magiging bagong employer sa MOI website o Metrash2 para sa pagproseso ng iyong tuluyang paglipat. Maaari nyo pong e comment ang inyong iba pang mga tanong at paglilinaw tungkol dito.

  • Proseso sa pagtapos o pagputol sa kontrata para mag 'exit for good'

    Sa unang post ko kaugnay sa paglipat ng isang manggagawa sa ibang kumpanya ng di na kakailanganin ang NOC alinsunod sa Qatar laws no. 18 and 19 of 2020, ay naipaliwanag ang mga prosesong dapat sundin ng mga manggagawa na nais lumipat sa ibang kumpanya. Tandaan po natin na ang paglipat sa ibang kumpanya ay nangangahulugan na meron kang natanggap ng Offer Letter, dahil kasama sa dapat mong ilagay sa Change Employer Form ay mga impormasyon tungkol sa iyong magiging bagong employer. Kung ikaw ay aalis sa kasalukuyan mong kumpanya na wala pa namang lilipatan o wala pa namang natatanggap na Offer Letter, ay tiyak na mare-reject lamang din ito ng kinauukulan. Ngayon, paano naman ang mga proseso na dapat sundin ng isang manggagawa na nais ng tapusin o putulin ang kanyang kontrata sa isang kumpanya para umuwi na, 'ika nga e mag exit na for good? Narito ang mga proseso: Mag download ng Leave Country Form sa website ng MADLSA (Click to Download). E fill-up at pirmahan ang nadownload na Leave Country Form. E submit ang form sa MADLSA online para sa kanilang pag-proseso. Hintayin ang confirmation ng MADLSA sa loob ng isang linggo matapos itong ma-submit, na nagtatakda ng notice period. Tandaan na lahat ng aplikasyon ay ayon sa mga terms and conditions na nilalabas ng MADLSA. Kung may mga isyu o problemang teknikal kaugnay sa nasabing mga proseso, maaaring tawagan ang MADLSA sa mga numerong 4028 8888, o kaya ay mag email sa support@ADLSA.gov.qa Meron ka pa bang karagdagang mga tanong? Maaari mong e comment dito.
