Saudi Green Initiative

The Saudi Green Initiative works on increasing Saudi Arabia’s reliance on clean energy, offsetting emissions, and protecting the environment, in line with Vision 2030. It aims to improve quality of life and protect future generations.

As a leading global energy producer, Saudi Arabia is committed to contributing positively to the global fight against climate change. Since the launch of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia has made tremendous progress in addressing its unique environmental challenges, but there is much more to be done.

The Saudi Green Initiative oversees Saudi Arabia’s work to combat climate change, facilitating whole-of-society, and public and private sector collaboration to rapidly scale-up climate action.
