Environment Agency Abu Dhabi Integrating Sustainability in Regulatory Framework

As the environmental regulator of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, integrating sustainability
considerations into the regulatory framework to protect habitats and biodiversity is at the core
of the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi’s (EAD) mission. With this aim, EAD have recently issued
the Abu Dhabi Emirate Single-use Plastic Policy to reduce the use of disposable products and the
amount of plastic that pollutes the land and the seas. EAD is working closely with the Department
of Economic Development and the Industrial Development Bureau to include indicators and
incentives in the Abu Dhabi Local Content Program for industries to measure, report and
improve their environmental performance while greening supply chains, lowering their carbon
footprint and supporting the local economy. EAD is also collaborating with government entities,
businesses and non-profit organisations to establish the Abu Dhabi Climate Action Network to
facilitate coordination, communication and action on climate mitigation and adaptation efforts
in alignment with local and federal policies, plans and programmes.
