Meeting discusses UAE 'green economy' initiatives

DUBAI, August 2, 2017

The UAE ministries of Infrastructure Development and Climate Change and Environment held a coordination meeting to study the progress of the national initiative for a green economy.

The green economy launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, in 2012 under the slogan "Green Economy for Sustainable Development" to turn the UAE to be a global hub and successful model for green growth and sustainable development, a Wam news agency report said.

Engineer Hassan Goma' Al Mansouri, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, underscored the ministry's keenness to collaborate with its different strategic partners to achieve the objectives of the UAE National Agenda, including the Green Development Initiative in order to maintain a sustainable environment for development and growth.

"The infrastructure development enterprises executed by the ministry serve as a role model for development thanks to the support provided by the country's wise leadership to the entire development drive, including all its economic, social, environmental and energy platforms. Such projects have proved to be robust enablers for growth and for achieving the 2021 objectives," Al Mansouri added.

The ministry within this context seeks to follow internationally recognised practices and recruit best-in-class talents from different fields to ensure best possible application of sustainability standards in areas of infrastructure, he said.
