Today, I pledge to use my individual power for the benefit of people and planet, starting by talking about climate change and sharing the positive steps we can all take for our planet.
A global initiative by Expo City Dubai, the Pledge is for everyone — you, your colleagues, your teams and your employees. As we host COP28, the global climate conference, it’s up to all of us to make our world a better place.
Get started by taking the Pledge and spreading the message, so everyone in your organisation understands that we all have a role to play in making the planet healthier and more sustainable. Then invite others to take the Pledge! We’re stronger when we all come together to create a sustainable future.
Building on Expo 2020 Dubai’s legacy and its theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,’ the Pledge for People and Planet – the first climate action platform offered in the Arabic language - is based on 7 guiding principles to inspire individual and collective agency and action, from the people of the UAE to the world.

Inspire your colleagues and teams to take the Pledge for People and Planet. Work alongside each other taking daily actions that reduce your carbon pollution. Organisations can make enterprise-wide commitments to the planet in parallel with the efforts that countries around the world are making to secure a viable future. Engaging employees to help in that effort is critical for organisations to realise their climate action goals.
People want to work for organisations committed to building a sustainable world. 75% of employees are eager to help fight climate change. Many of those employees would like their employers to ask them to do more about this critical issue that’s defining our future.
