MOCCAE & Tadweer Partner To Launch Global Initiative For Waste Management


The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) and the Abu Dhabi trash Management Company (Tadweer) have joined forces to establish 'Waste to Zero,' a global project to accelerate trash decarbonization activities.

Both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the MOCCAE headquarters in Dubai. The MoU was signed in the presence of Mr. Mohammed Saeed Al Nuaimi, Acting Undersecretary of the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, Engineer Othaibah Al Qaydi, Acting Assistant Undersecretary for the Sustainable Communities Sector at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, and Engineer Ali Al Dhaheri, Tadweer MD and CEO, as per emiratitimes.

The program aims to strengthen the UAE's status as a worldwide leader by contributing to international efforts to meet the 43 percent carbon reduction target by 2030.

As we prepare to host COP28, the UAE wants to play a bigger role in pushing global climate action by decreasing emissions and contributing to the Paris Agreement's goals of mitigating climate change consequences and preserving the planet. Our collaborations with significant actors are critical to meeting the UAE's climate obligations and reaching net zero emissions by 2050. We are delighted to be working with Tadweer to establish a worldwide campaign to decarbonize the waste management sector, which is estimated to account for 3-5% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Mr. Nuaimi said that this collaboration would play an important role in boosting the circular economy in the UAE and throughout the world by offering an integrated economic system that helps to the global transition to a green economy.
