A sustainable future for all
2023 is the ‘Year of Sustainability’ in the UAE, and Emirates is leading the aviation industry’s efforts to find innovative solutions to challenges, such as enabling aircraft to be completely powered by Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Emirates operated the region’s first demonstration of such a flight with a Boeing 777-300ER, paving the way for future flights that will greatly reduce the industry’s CO2 emissions.
Dubai Can was launched in February 2022 to increase awareness of the harmful effects on the environment of single-use plastics and promote the use of reusable bottles. In its first year, it has successfully reduced the use of more than 7 million 500 ml single-use plastic water bottles, inspiring companies like Emirates, to install filtered water dispensers plumbed directly from their offices’ main water supply.
The world’s business hub
Supporting the Dubai Economic Agenda D33 to make the city one of the top three global destinations for tourism and business, Dubai Business Events (DBE) ended 2022 with 232 successful bids on international business events. Along with key industry partners, including Emirates and the Dubai World Trade Centre, the next few years will see Dubai hosting the world’s congresses, meetings and incentive travel programmes.
Dubai Vision 2040
Dubai 2040 is a plan of sustainable development focused on human wellbeing, improved quality of life and enhanced global competitiveness of Dubai. It aims to see future Dubai become the best city in the world for people to live and do business. The plan will not only grow the city’s residential, recreation and economic areas, it will also extend public beaches and green areas while preserving rural areas.
Eclectic entertainment options. The world’s best cuisines all in one place.
