Target Climate

Learn how to reduce your organisation’s carbon emissions by joining our Target Climate Initiative.

Project Name

Lead the UAE’s transition to a low-carbon economy

Climate change is widely regarded as the greatest threat of our time, putting societies, economies and nations at risk. Globally, corporates are a significant contributor of greenhouse gas emissions which lead directly to climate change. Good corporate practices can go a long way in mitigating carbon emissions.

Project Goals

Our goal is to equip corporates with the capabilities to monitor, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions and identify further opportunities to cut back on emissions.

We aim to support corporates in their low-carbon transformation journey by setting up a local Community of Practice (CoP) on climate action that will meet regularly to share best practices.
