EWS-WWF entered into a climate change partnership with the Sustainable City
As part of the partnership, Diamond Developers - the company behind the Sustainable City - will support EWS-WWF’s climate and energy programme for the next three years. EWS-WWF will relocate its Dubai offices to Sustainable City and support the Development’s sustainability performance through monitoring, reporting and verifying its greenhouse gas emissions.
The partnership seeks to demonstrate how a low-carbon business model can be a transformational element for the future development of the UAE and contribute to economic growth.It also reflects EWS-WWFs vision to work with partners to address climate change and energy issues in the UAE.
By 2020, the vision for EWS-WWF’s climate and energy programme is to see the UAE taking significant steps towards low carbon development by increasing its ambition and implementation of renewable energy, expanding energy efficiency, decreasing carbon emissions from road transport and addressing climate change risks. Cross-sector partnerships are key to achieve these goals.
