According to research published on Tuesday in Trouw, Dutch firms have earned millions of euros on construction projects related to the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. According to the paper, some companies have earned tens of millions of euros from their work. Construction giant BAM, steel company Frijns Staal, Royal HaskoningDHV, dredging firm Boskalis, and civil engineers Arcadis are among the companies named in the paper as having worked in the Gulf state. According to the paper, the companies were involved in the construction of a metro station for football fans, an airport, and the development of a new city complete with a football stadium. The Qatar World Cup has become a highly contentious project, as two million laborers have been brought in to complete the work, often in deplorable conditions. Thousands of them have perished. Trouw stated that it was unaware of any deaths associated with the Dutch projects. According to the paper, not all Dutch firms involved in Qatar conducted any research into working conditions before moving. A number of Dutch national football team sponsors, including ING, Albert Heijn, KPN, and lottery company Nederlandse Loterij, have stated that they will not be attending the event.
