The UAE's real estate industry has accepted and put into practice sustainable solutions at an accelerated rate in recent years. The UAE has consistently demonstrated greatness since it was founded more than 50 years ago, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Dubai, the most prominent emirate in the country, has been the poster child for this forward-thinking approach to become one of the most desirable locations in the world for immigration.
Since the UAE's population is expected to surpass 13 million by 2050, the government has placed a great focus on growing in a sustainable manner. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed led the kingdom's sustainable charge with various forward-thinking initiatives after it ratified the Paris Agreement in 2015, making it the first Middle Eastern country to do so.
UAE Net Zero 2050 and other strategic directives have established the nation as a global leader in sustainability. Similar to this, important projects like Dubai 2040 have been put into action to further improve the real estate industry. Building with a "green-first" philosophy has become more popular among developers since environmental sustainability is a major tenet of this master plan.
