Uniting to create a better tomorrow

Driven for and by the region, the Middle East Green Initiative brings together leaders to reduce climate change-related impacts. Facilitating knowledge transfer and exchange between countries, MGI is a catalyst for global impact, creating an economy of scale for climate action.

The Middle East’s green future has massive potential for economic diversification, job creation, and private sector investment. By putting the planet first, MGI creates opportunities beyond the environment.
