The Chamber also encouraged its stakeholders to use eco-friendly products and services in order to stimulate investment in environment-focused industries.

This strategy is in line with the Emirate’s ‘Green Economy for Sustainable Development’ initiative, since the Chamber will establish strategic partnerships with global players in energy conservation including other Chambers of Commerce. Additionally, different organizations are working on connecting the public and private sector under green economy proposals that contribute to the implementation of responsible business practices.
