Dr. Ahmed bin Thani Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, has discussed with Al-Futtaim Auto Group, investment opportunities, joint co-operation and co-ordination to promote the use of environmentally-friendly vehicles in the state.

The move is part of the wise leadership's vision to enhance co-operation and co-ordination between the public and private sectors in order to protect the environment, promote sustainability, reduce environment pollution and curb emission of the carbon footprint nationwide.

During the meeting, the two parties focussed on ways to reduce emissions from cars and promote the use of hybrid vehicles with lower emission rates as compared with conventional cars. They also discussed encouraging people to use hydrogen cars deemed to have the least impact on the environment, with their emissions at zero rate.

Dr. Al Zeyoudi stressed the importance of outsourcing government services to the private sector in line with the vision of the leadership. He pointed out that such co-operation is of paramount importance to maintain the role of the UAE's leading position in the region and the world as well.

He referred to the efforts of the ministry towards enhancing work with strategic partners and environmental sectors in the country to achieve the targets of the national agenda of the UAE Vision 2021, and unify the national efforts in the environmental fields so as to shift towards a green and sustainable economy. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/economics-emirates/1395293323849.html
