Saudi Arabia’s National Efforts

Saudi Arabia is at the forefront of tackling environmental challenges through ambitious initiatives. Launched in March 2021, the Saudi Green Initiative aims to transform 30% of the country's land into nature reserves, plant 10 billion trees, and restore 40 million hectares of degraded land. These efforts are in line with Vision 2030, the Kingdom's blueprint for sustainable development, which seeks to enhance quality of life while preserving the environment for future generations.

Mangrove Nursery

Our Mangrove Nursery aims to plant 50 million mangroves by 2030 and is a cornerstone of our environmental strategy. This initiative not only provides crucial shelter for diverse wildlife but also plays a significant role in carbon sequestration.

Wetlands Creation

Spanning more than 1 million square meters, our landscape nursery will provide more than 30 million plants for our destinations, reducing reliance on imported species and supporting native flora. Partnering with ACWA Power, the wetlands use treated wastewater from our constructed wetlands sewage treatment plant – the largest of its kind in the Middle East – to irrigate our landscapes sustainably.

Doum Palm Replantation

By designing and fabricating custom-made lifting gear, we have innovatively transplanted Doum palm trees, a native species, ensuring their survival and contributing to the region’s biodiversity. This project not only preserves the species but also enhances the local landscape.
