Plans for 'world's greenest city' unveiled



Plans for 'world's greenest city' unveiled
A "sustainability strategy" to deliver the greenest city in the world has been unveiled today (January 15th).

The government of Abu Dhabi has worked with the WWF to launch Masdar City, which will eventually be home to 50,000 people.

It is part of Abu Dhabi's Masdar Initiative, an investment which aims to explore "future energy sources and clean technology solutions".

Masdar City has been designed by Foster and Associates in accordance with the sustainability standards of the WWF's One Planet Living programme. It is hoped that the municipality will become something of a "benchmark" for sustainable urban development".

Covering an area of six kilometres, it will be car-free and will have zero carbon emissions and zero waste.

Dr Sultan al Jaber, chief executive of the Masdar Initiative, said: "Masdar City will question conventional patterns of urban development, and set new benchmarks for sustainability and environmentally friendly design - the students, faculty and businesses located in Masdar City will not only be able to witness innovation first-hand, but they will also participate in its development."ADNFCR-1235-ID-18427922-ADNFCR
