From electricity generation to safe drinking water, extreme weather is forcing us to craft durable...

Valued at $724.48 billion in 2021, the global consumer electronics market is growing rapidly and shows no signs of slowing: and one thing that generates in addition to profits is a mind-boggling amount of e-waste. According to Precedence Research, the market size is expected to surpass $1.13 trillion by 2030. The surging demand for electronic devices is likely in part due to shifts in work culture post-Covid. Companies such as Google have adopted flexible working hours, whereby people work...

‘Sustainable’ has shifted from a buzzword to a way of life for many people in the UAE, with many choices about where to travel, what to wear and where to shop made through an environmental lens — and increasingly that extends to restaurants, too.  While residents may have long sought to make sustainable food choices through grocery purchases, the options to dine out sustainably have noticeably widened in recent years. Check out these restaurants and...

If the UAE’s desert plants can grow lush and brilliantly green without water, what could they do for skin? That’s what the team behind the UAE-born, all-natural and organic skincare line De L’Arta wondered. The co-founders – engineer Saeed AlKhoori, soil scientist Lina Yousef and her sister, Sarah, who works on the marketing side – launched the company last year with their first products made from the Tetreana qatarensis plant, aka Tq. A plant that’s...

Ag-Tech – short for “agriculture technology” is not only a buzzword but a necessity these days, and the UAE has embraced the indoor farming trend in a big way for years now: a necessary move anywhere, but particularly forward-thinking for a nation that imports the vast majority of its food, amid a global setting of food insecurity, supply chain shortages and price hikes. Khadija Hasan is the founder and chief executive of KRISPR, a UAE...

Electric vehicle production and purchasing are surging worldwide, and this isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The Middle East’s more affluent GCC countries are bringing the region closer to Western market trends. In the UAE, which is the second Middle Eastern nation to host the United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP 28, in 2023, the number of electric cars in Dubai alone increased by over 7,000 percent from 2015 to 2022.

On December 14, 2019, the UAE celebrated what appeared to be a remarkable achievement.

At the time, Mariam Hareb Almheiri, Minister of State for Food Security, said the jump reflected the government’s determination “to transform the UAE into...
