United Arab Emirates: Crown Prince of Dubai, Hamdan bin Mohammed has launched a new initiative called ‘Dubai can‘; aims to reduce the utilization of single-use plastic bottles in the capital city.  

This initiative is a part of the leadership’s strategic plan to make Dubai a sustainable place while putting efforts to make it the ‘Best city in the world’ to live, work and visit. 


Under this initiative, the multiple communities of the capital city will be guided to take measures for diminishing the usage of single-use plastic water bottles in their day-to-day life. 

As part of the ‘Dubai can‘, the government will install more than thirty (30) drinking water stations citywide. The authorities underlined that this would encourage the general public as well as visitors to ‘refill for life.’ 

This initiative is lined up with the Dubai 2040 Urban Masterplan and Dubai’s commitment to supporting the country in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and UAE NetZero 2050 initiative. 

Helal Saeed Al Marri, the Director-General of Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism, speaking and underlining the significance of the initiative, asserted, “The ‘Dubai Can’ initiative is one of the innovative ideas that we are implementing to create a vibrant new green economy that will offer the world a unique model for sustainable development”. 

“The initiative is aligned with vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, and the directives of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, to transform the emirate into a leading sustainable destination and the best city in the world to live, work and visit,” following the above statement Al Marri added.  

He further emphasized that the motive of the Dubai government is to inspire present and future generations in playing their part in safeguarding the environment and conserving the natural resources of the middle east nation.
