UAE launches global call to action on sustainability


Abu Dhabi, Jan 9 (IANS/WAM): Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) on Wednesday launched the #WeAreCommitted campaign, calling on the global community to pledge their support to sustainability.

The ADSW will launch this week and is one of the largest sustainability gathering in the world as well as a global platform for governments, businesses and members of the local community.

The online campaign brought together government ministers, ambassadors, business leaders and young innovators to share their commitments in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

According to economic analysis, tackling sustainability-related challenges could save the global economy up to $30 trillion and help prevent millions of people being displaced due to climate change.

Commenting on the campaign, Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, the UAE's Minister of Climate Change and Environment, said: "#WeAreCommitted is an impressive global campaign for sustainability. We encourage millennials worldwide to take a leaf out of the UAE's book and learn how to lead a more sustainable life as our forefathers did in the past."

"Through advancing innovation and leveraging the latest technologies, the UAE has emerged as a model of global sustainability stewardship. The country has adopted a set of effective policies and strategies that integrate efforts to achieve sustainability across diverse fields," he said.

The ADSW annually attracts more than 38,000 attendees, with the 2018 edition seeing more than $15 billion of commercial deals were announced during the week.
