Al Bayt Stadium Sustainability

Incorporating best energy usage practices and green building materials into its venues is a cornerstone of Qatar's efforts to host the most environmentally friendly FIFA World Cup™ ever.

Through its commitment to sustainable stadium construction, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) worked towards Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certifications

Al Bayt Stadium received a Class A* rating from GSAS.

Using history to deliver a green future

The very concept of this distinctive stadium, which was delivered in partnership with Aspire Zone Foundation, was centred on sustainability and low energy usage.

Based upon the tents that nomadic people have used for centuries to shield themselves from the desert heat, the design of Al Bayt Stadium minimises the amount of energy required to keep football fans and players cool. The tent structure's lightweight canopies stretch out towards the pitch from every side, providing plenty of shade to supplement the air cooling technologies at work.

A holistic approach to sustainability

The SC's green building aspirations do not stop at the venue itself, but are extended to the surrounding city of Al Khor. This rapidly growing city enjoys numerous parks, lakes, water features, green spaces – and protected green belt land which stretches out from the stadium to the sea. 

The size of the park area surrounding the stadium is equivalent to over 30 football pitches. Tree-lined pedestrian walkways guide fans to the arena, while extensive taxi and bus facilities minimise the number of vehicles on local roads. For those cars that do need to use the roads, improvement works mean shorter journey times and a smaller environmental impact.

The SC and Aspire Zone Foundation have left no stone unturned in their determination to make Al Bayt Stadium a venue that future generations can be proud of.
