Green Economy in Dubai: Celebrating UAE’s 17th National Environment Day

Celebrating UAE’s 17th National Environment Day on Tuesday, President Sheikh Khalifa was of the opinion that UAE can be an international pioneer in creating a green economy. He said that the major goal of this event was to make the country a world leader in the safety of the environment and energy efficiency.

Sheikh Khalifa also said that, “There is a need for public awareness, along with government effort, to promote production and deployment of renewable energy.” Promoting eco friendly modes of transport is also essential to support this cause; such transport helps in reducing the carbon emissions which are otherwise hazardous to the environment. Also, it is vital that organic farming is also propagated. Apart from this, there has to be an emphasis on preservation of biodiversity and an ecological balance needs to be maintained.
