When you think of Dubai, it is unlikely sustainability is the first thing that comes to mind. More likely will be the ultra-modern architecture, vast shopping malls, indoor ski slopes, luxury hotels and gas-guzzling SUVs, all air-conditioned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to a temperature just above freezing.
On paper, things certainly don’t look good for the environmental impact of this desert city state on the coast of the Persian Gulf. The United Arab Emirates, of which Dubai is a part, ranks fifth-highest for carbon dioxide emissions per capita. Country Overshoot Day in the emirates this year was March 13, exactly the same day as Canada and the United States, and a week after I had the opportunity to visit. There are certainly more environmental rankings and metrics that could paint a grim picture of Dubai’s sustainability.
