Saudi Arabia’s approach to sustainable climate action

An impact network driven by responsible leadership

Saudi Arabia recognizes that the journey to net zero is complex and requires a multifaceted effort. Positive impact can only be achieved with clear leadership commitments and ambitious goals anchored in actionable plans.

The governance infrastructure that the Kingdom has put in place to steer the green transition enables long-term whole-of-society action.

The annual Middle East Green Initiative Summit provides a platform to convene Heads of State and senior climate leaders to ensure continued meaningful action.

Steering Saudi Arabia’s green transition

The Saudi Green Initiative is a national master plan that unites environmental protection, clean energy development and sustainability programs within the Kingdom, to improve quality of life for future generations and combat climate change.
