Dubai has announced the launch of a new sustainable city project aimed at promoting environmentally-friendly living and reducing carbon emissions in the region.
The project, called “The Sustainable City Phase 2,” will feature more than 1,000 villas and apartments that have been designed with sustainability in mind. The buildings will be powered by solar panels, and the development will also include green spaces, cycling tracks, and electric vehicle charging stations.
“The Sustainable City Phase 2 is a major step forward in our efforts to create a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly Dubai,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the Chairman of Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy.
The development is part of Dubai’s broader efforts to become a global leader in sustainability and to reduce its carbon footprint. The city has already made significant progress in this area, with initiatives such as the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which aims to make the city 75% powered by clean energy by 2050.
“The Sustainable City Phase 2 is a testament to Dubai’s commitment to sustainability and to creating a better future for all,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, the CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.
The project has been welcomed by environmental activists and industry experts, who say it will help to promote sustainable living and reduce the city’s environmental impact.
“This project is a major step forward in our efforts to create a more sustainable and livable city for all,” said Mariam Al Mheiri, the UAE Minister of State for Food and Water Security. “It is a testament to our commitment to sustainability and to building a better future for generations to come.”
As Dubai continues to grow and develop, the Sustainable City Phase 2 is seen as a critical step towards creating a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly city for all residents.
