New “Sustainable City” in Dubai aims to be Net Carbon Zero

Dubai City | —

“The goal of sustainability is to enhance quality of life, without compromising the needs of future generations. Sustainability is achieved by balancing the social economic and environmental needs of humans with the environment. We shall adopt sustainability in our day to day lives, in our thinking, and in all aspects of our behavior.

We are proud to present The Sustainable City, the first Net Zero Energy city in Dubai. A first of its kind, and considered one of the most unique developments in the region and the world, it meets and exceeds international sustainability standards. The City is being shaped with the support and the direct supervision of the Government of Dubai Land Department. It applies the standards of Dubai Municipality, Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority DEWA.

The City’s objective is to become an international model of sustainable living, work education and entertainment. It aims to provide all the amenities and luxuries of modern life with no sacrifice to the environment. This city redefines sustainable living by providing an unprecedented experience in terms of no service or maintenance fees, energy efficient housing, “green” education and health care, eco-attractions and a full range of indoor and outdoor active and passive recreation opportunities.”

  1. It is good that Dubai is making a sustainable city, they are setting a good example for the rest of the world. The problem is that these kinds of cities cost a lot of money and most countries cannot afford to do this. Dubai is an oil rich city and many of the people there can afford homes like this. In other parts of the world this would be impossible. What would work even better than setting an example would be to get these products that are used to make these sustainable cities more affordable. If they were cheap enough, more people and countries would build them. One city in the world is great, but it wouldn’t make a whole lot of difference unless many other countries follow them. More technology needs to be discovered so these cities can be built for all counties even if there economies are very low.
