Nakheel has a deep understanding of and concern for environmental sustainability. In 2007, Nakheel set an ambitious sustainability agenda to help implement improved practices across all areas of the organisation, from development planning to asset management.

Nakheel is the only property development company in the Arabian Gulf with an in-house team of dedicated experts working full time in the area of environmental research and development. Nakheel was also the first company in the UAE to work closely with world-renowned global partners to monitor water quality and no other company can say it has attracted new marine life as a direct result of its work.

We are going further and providing a call to action for the world. Growing a city out of the ocean creates both problems and opportunities for good environmental practice. The smart thinking has to begin before the first grain of sand is laid. From smarter irrigation to clever cooling systems, from transport systems to protecting eco-systems. Nakheel is driving forward our thinking about sustainability.
