Climate Action Plan

NYU Abu Dhabi is working to develop a comprehensive climate action plan that will enable the university to measure its greenhouse gas emissions and set clear, measurable targets for reducing these as we move forward.

In alignment with the National Climate Change Plan of the UAE 2017–2050 and to support NYU’s vision, NYUAD is bolstering action to reduce its carbon footprint and its impact on the environment. 

NYUAD’s Climate Action Plan will encompass all required reductions strategies to ensure that the targets set are achieved and that we are on track to succeed the university’s aspirations. 

The plan will also enable us to:

  1. Improve our campus resilience

  2. Enhance occupants’ experience through quieter, healthier, and more comfortable campus buildings

  3. Minimize maintenance and insurance costs on campus
