Saudi Green Initiative

Saudi Green Initiative (SGI) is an ambitious national initiative that is focused on combating climate change, improving quality of life, and protecting the environment for future generations.

Launched in 2021 by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, SGI is a whole-of-society initiative, uniting all sustainability efforts in the country to rapidly scale up the Kingdom’s climate action.

SGI supports Saudi Arabia’s ambition to reach net zero emissions by 2060 through the Circular Carbon Economy approach and is also accelerating the country’s transition to a green economy. Three overarching targets guide SGI’s work - emissions reduction, afforestation, and land and sea protection.

Since SGI’s inauguration, 77 initiatives corresponding to the three targets have been activated, representing an investment of more than $186bn and helping to drive sustainable growth. By bringing together the government and private sector, and fostering collaboration and innovation, the Kingdom’s commitments have been turned into tangible action, whilst supporting global goals.
