ABU DHABI / WAM
Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) on Wednesday launched the #WeAreCommitted campaign, calling on the global community to pledge their support to sustainability. The online campaign has brought together Sheikhs, government ministers, amba-ssadors, business leaders, and young innovators to share their commitments.
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.
Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, who participated in the launch video, 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 eme-rged 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.”
