This historic declaration has enabled Dubai to take Global Leadership in sustainable development in light of global climate change crisis threatening Mankind.

Green Dubai World Forum is an independent, Free Zone Organization. We are striving towards a sustainable world where values are as important a basis as rules. Our motto is ‘promotion of Green and sustainable development in Dubai and rest of the world. We believe that progress without sustainable development concepts is not conducive for
mankind.

Our vision for Green Dubai World Forum is to foster the relationship between governments and private sector in order to achieve sustainable development in Dubai and the rest of the world. We enjoy a unique standing by recognizing and responding to two developments:

  • The world’s key environmental challenges cannot be met by governments, business or civil society alone.
  • In an environmentally challenged world characterized by complexity, fragility and ever greater synchronicity, strategic insights cannot be passively acquired. They are best developed through continuous interaction with peers and with the most knowledgeable people in the field.

To carry out its mission, the Green Dubai World Forum has developed an integrated value chain by involving world leaders in communities, inspiring them with strategic insights and enabling them through Green and Sustainable initiatives.
