To foster sustainable development, the Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Cisco International Limited (Cisco) whereby the two entities will work towards a range of initiatives aimed at accelerating climate solutions. The MoU was signed by GORD’s Founding Chairman, Dr. Yousef Alhorr and Cisco Vice President for Middle East and Africa, Reem Asaad at Cisco Qatar’s offices in Qatar Science and Technology Park. 

Areas of possible cooperation outlined in the MOU include collaboration on sustainable building solutions, research and development projects in the area of green products, capacity building through trainings and educational programs, as well as dissemination of knowledge through industry events.

Speaking at the event, Founding Chairman of GORD, Dr. Yousef Alhorr said, “With environmental responsibility at the forefront of our corporate philosophy, GORD’s Centers of Excellence are aimed at developing standards and solutions that will lead the way to a sustainable future. By collaborating with globally recognized leading players such as Cisco, our efforts are premised in leveraging our solutions, systems and people in line with our overarching vision to accelerate sustainable development.”

Ms. Reem Asaad, Vice President, Cisco Middle East and Africa commented: “We see green and digital as a twin transition. From hybrid work to smart buildings, AI-driven data processing and new chips that are at the heart of the Internet for the Future, digital technology is a critical enabler to lessen environmental impact. GORD and Cisco share a vision to actively inspire the innovation that is essential for a sustainable future and we look forward to turning that vision into a reality for the region.”
