Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Bin Mohammad Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Ooredoo Qatar, underscored the national impact of the partnership, stating, “This MoU is a cornerstone in our journey towards achieving the goals of Qatar’s National Vision 2030, emphasizing the critical role of innovative technologies in creating a prosperous and sustainable future for Qatar and beyond. Through our joint efforts, we aim to lead by example and advance our nation by implementing key practices that not only benefit our customers but also the environment.”

Melissa Schoeb remarked on the agreement, “There is no green without digital. Connectivity is a vital enabler for decarbonization and sustainability across every sector. But we must make sure that the products and services underpinning that connectivity are as energy-efficient as possible. This fantastic new partnership between Nokia and Ooredoo will strengthen our already close relationship and explore the best ways to maximize the positive impact of telecommunications while minimizing waste and emissions – and it is in line with Nokia’s strategic aim of developing sustainability into a competitive advantage. I can’t wait to get started.”

Industry sources further added that by joining forces together both firms have boosted their strengths, and Ooredoo and Nokia are all poised to deliver impactful solutions that meet the evolving needs of the market while contributing positively to the environment and society as a whole.

This strategic partnership marks an exemplary step towards the accomplishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and reinforces the role of Ooredoo and Nokia as pioneers in the global movement towards more innovative and eco-conscious telecommunications.

Industry sources added that the eco-centric collaboration encompasses a comprehensive strategy to upgrade ESG practices across multiple fronts and will likely set new standards in the field. A core focus will be placed on energy efficiency, with both parties seeking to identify and implement solutions that enhance network energy use. 

The two tech titans will also cooperate to improve circular economy practices, such as the reuse, recycling, and refurbishment of legacy hardware, to maximize the value of products through to the end of their life cycle. They aim to embed circular economy principles into operations to reduce waste and promote sustainability across multiple fronts. The pair will also explore improving social inclusion, addressing connectivity challenges, and fostering digital skills and training programs to help engage, educate, and empower marginalized communities.
