DUBAI NAMED THE MOST SUS­TAIN­ABLE CITY IN GCC

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

Dubai might rank 33rd out of 50 of the world’s most sus­tain­able cities, but it has been named 1st in the Mid­dle East. Con­sul­tancy Arcadis’ Sus­tain­able Cities In­dex com­piled a list of the world’s most sus­tain­able cities by tak­ing their en­vi­ron­men­tal progress, vi­a­bil­ity as a place to live and fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity into con­sid­er­a­tion. Sit­ting com­fort­ably at 1st place is Frank­furt, with Lon­don not far be­hind in the run­ner-up spot. Ac­cord­ing to Con­struc­tion Week Online, Arcadis said, “Frank­furt’s high rank­ing in the Sus­tain­able Cities In­dex may come as a sur­prise, how­ever, the self-pro­claimed ‘Green City Frank­furt’ has a long track record of proac­tively tak­ing ac­tion to im­prove its sus­tain­abil­ity.” 20 dif­fer­ent in­di­ca­tors are taken into ac­count when putting the in­dex to­gether, in­clud­ing greenspace, in­come in­equal­ity and ease of do­ing busi­ness.

Abu Dhabi is sit­ting at 34th place with Doha at 41st, Jeddah at 43rd and Riyadh at 44th.
