Confronting climate change, the greatest challenge of our generation

2021 has shaped up to be a landmark year for climate action, but much more needs to be done. The Earth’s warming is the existential threat of our time, and the clock is ticking. We recognize that Saudi Arabia’s role in the global economy and energy supply means we have a responsibility to act quickly. We also believe a wealth of opportunity to unite and advance efforts remains dormant. It is our ambition to unlock this potential to protect the planet at scale and at speed.

To this end, we launched the Saudi Green Initiative and Middle East Green Initiative to champion climate action and chart a path for protecting the planet within and beyond the Kingdom’s borders.

At the three-day launch of these dual climate initiatives, world-renowned policymakers, scientists, and activists will come together to usher in a new era for international cooperation and amplify the impact of existing climate action efforts.
