Education City Stadium becomes first Qatar 2022 World Cup venue to get five-star rating from GSAS

The Education City Stadium has become the first Qatar 2022 tournament venue to receive a five-star rating from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS).
The prestigious rating, considered a mark of excellence in sustainability, design and construction, was presented by the Founding Chairman of the Gulf Organization for Research & Development (GORD) Dr Yousef al Horr to Executive Director of the Technical Delivery Office at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) Jassim Telefat.
A proposed quarter-final venue in 2022, Education City Stadium, known as the ‘Diamond in the Desert, features a range of sustainability features, including direct access to public transport via the Education City tram system link to Doha Metro; low toxicity indoor materials which provide a healthy indoor environment and LED sports lighting which offers better light quality at lower energy consumption. In addition, 85 percent of building materials for the stadium were regionally sourced, while 29 percent were generated from recycled materials. page 16
