It considers youth as one of the cornerstones of achieving this goal, by exploiting the best technologies and noble meanings.
The Saudi Minister of Energy, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, pointed out the Kingdom’s aspiration to become a leader in the field of hydrogen, as it plans to produce and export large quantities of hydrogen by 2030. This step coincides with the holding of the “COP26” climate conference in Glasgow, where the Kingdom is committed to achieving “Zero” carbon emissions before 2060 .
Starting in 2016 and the launch of Vision 2030, we witnessed many tireless efforts made by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to build a more sustainable future and care for protecting the environment. In 2021, the Saudi Green Initiative combined these efforts and made it a center for achieving its comprehensive goals. This initiative is based on achieving compensation. Reducing carbon emissions, increasing the use of clean energy, and combating climate change, which represents a major step towards achieving the goals of sustainability and environmental preservation.
Under one umbrella and with a clear and common goal, the Saudi Green Initiative supervises all of the Kingdom’s efforts to combat climate change. These efforts include:
The Green Middle East Initiative is a regional effort led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to address the effects of climate change on the Middle East region, and to achieve the goals of global climate action together, by enhancing regional cooperation and developing infrastructure to reduce emissions and protect the environment.

Rising temperatures have had a negative impact on livelihoods and job opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa regions to a large extent, and if global temperatures continue to rise in this manner, the repercussions of extreme climate conditions in the region are expected to increase, such as drought and heavy rains, as the economic cost of storms is estimated. Land alone generates more than $13 billion annually in this region. To ensure effective climate action, an alliance must be formed that brings together and supports all stakeholders in the region. The Green Middle East Initiative aims to unite the efforts of the region’s leaders to achieve the common goal of combating climate change.
