Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, confirmed that Dubai had created a roadmap to make public transportation in the emirate emission-free by 2050.
The roadmap is under the directives of the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The measure, consistent with the UAE’s commitment to climate action, cements the country’s position as a pioneer in using renewable energy and transitioning to a green economy.
Sheikh Hamdan stated: “Humanity expects each of us to contribute to saving the future. The UAE spares no effort to be on the frontlines of preserving the sustainability of our planet’s resources. A series of green economy initiatives have led to Dubai becoming a role model for sustainability.”
“Our initiatives for the future will help ensure that the UAE continues to set an example for the world in promoting innovation and creativity. We look forward to welcoming the world to COP 28 to be held at Expo City Dubai,” he added.
The roadmap for achieving zero-emission public transportation in Dubai by 2050 is based on a series of executive initiatives related to infrastructure, the circular economy, and green mobility that will achieve the desired environmental impact by avoiding nearly 8 million tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of planting 132 million trees.
The Dubai Executive Council also established a strategy for licensing early-learning schools, which will help to increase Dubai’s attractiveness and competitiveness.
The new strategy would strengthen social services in the emirate by integrating legislative frameworks, standards, and activities to promote continuous quality development. BKM/ Expat Media
