In an attempt to conserve the planet for future generations, the Crown Prince expressed his desire to strike a healthy balance between economic development and environmental protection. This meeting has resulted in the ratification of 200 programs that have been developed for different parts of Dubai.

These schemes focus on extending the finest and the highest levels of services to the citizens of the country. The primary objective of the meeting was to implement the policies that help to enhance the quality of life. 

Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum stresses upon the collaboration between the government and the private sector for the accomplishment of this goal. The contribution of the private sector would be actually helpful to create attractive investment opportunities in Dubai.

In order to implement the first part of the scheme, the Crown Prince placed reliance on the upcoming opportunities in the circular economy. The government of the country is of the opinion to satisfy the total demand for consumables by reducing wastage.

Facilities would be installed that would help to reuse and recycle the disposed of material on a regular basis.

The meeting was attended by industrialists and the key stakeholders of different industries. The impact of every industry on the environment was studied in detail. The delegates evaluated the functioning of the construction food, packaging, and electronic waste management companies on a priority basis.

Reports were produced in order to depict the environmental harm caused by the discharge of these industries.

As a result, all of these sectors have been included in the scheme. As a result, the waste produced by these industries would be subjected to new techniques of waste management and waste treatment. This effort will go a long way to mitigate the hazardous impact on the environment.

This has not been the first time that the country has emerged to be an active player in protecting the environment. It was in the year of 2012 that the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority helped to increase the dependence of the citizens on renewable sources from conventional sources of energy by 55%.

In addition, the Supreme Council of Energy in Dubai has also adopted the 2016-21 Carbons Emissions Strategy. The strategy is targeted to reduce carbon emissions by 22% by the end of  2025 and by 30% by 2030.
