Our 2030 Sustainability Strategy

Our 2030 Sustainability Strategy

Sustainability has always been an integral part of ADNOC’s values and business practices and stretches back to the vision of the UAE’s Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who balanced economic development with environmental responsibility.

Our 2030 Sustainability Strategy is an important roadmap on the way to achieving our Net Zero by 2045 ambition, and outlines how we continue to ensure sustainable operations and practices across the businesses, communities, and environments in which we operate.
