Qatar Cool takes the environmental impact of district cooling very seriously. District cooling plants are operated more efficiently with less harm to the environment by eliminating such things as carbon dioxide, possible gas leak and noise pollution. District cooling offers major environmental benefits and allows us to economize on natural resources. Over the past nine years Qatar Cool has saved over 2.2 billion kilo watt hours of electricity, in turn reducing over 1.2 billion tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. The CO2 reductions are equivalent to removing over 237 thousand cars off the road or planting over 16 million mature trees, which would populate over 46 thousand football pitches.
