Dubai to be ‘most sustainable city’

Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, said the civic body is working hard to make the city of Dubai one of the top ten sustainable cities in the world by 2020, implementing the green building regulations and related orders in line with the strategic vision and goals of the Dubai Government.

These comments came when the director-general was speaking about the plans of Dubai Municipality in preparation to host Expo 2020, when he said, “We are obliged to fulfill our word in front of the world that we will create an amazing future connecting the minds of all nationalities, as we realise that the eyes of the entire world are looking on Dubai to find out what we are going to do in years to come.

“We won this opportunity as result of the long-sighted vision and plans of our leadership, which are crystal clear from the current structure and ongoing projects in the emirate of Dubai. The civic body has already started its efforts towards creating the most sustainable city in the world. It has recently formed a special committee for sustainability which will study and execute green initiatives,” he said.
