Sharjah showcases its commitment to sustainability in the tourism sector

 Tuesday, June 6, 2023 


As consumption practices are being relooked by the world on World Environment Day, the global tourism industry likely emerges as a key player that can make a lasting and meaningful impact on the environment, people, communities, and businesses.

The glaring reality of the sector’s impact can be seen in the statistics revealed by the World Counts platform, which indicates that tourists left more than 885 million tons of waste and consumed more than 1.7 billion liters of fresh water in 2023, while carbon emission is anticipated to grow by 2030 as a result of tourist activities.

Khalid Jassim Al Madfa, Chairman of the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Department Authority (SCTDA) says: ‘Sustainability can be best achieved when we make it a mindset and not just try to achieve it through certain practices.

In Sharjah, they believe in the importance of fostering such a culture and mindset in future generations, so that it continues to reflect in their approach and conscious behavior.

The Emirates introduced the model of the Sharjah Sustainable City, the first sustainable residential community in the Emirates which includes 1250 villas powered by renewable energy.
