Masdar City, a pioneering sustainable urban development and tech and innovation hub in Abu Dhabi, and the Mohammed bin Rashid Housing Establishment (MBRHE) have signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will enhance collaboration on sustainable housing projects in Dubai.
As a principal governmental entity dedicated to providing housing solutions for the people of Dubai, MBRHE is at the forefront of integrating sustainable practices into residential development projects. The partnership with Masdar City will enable a transformative approach to creating environmentally friendly and energy-efficient living spaces for the people of the UAE.
The MoU was signed by Mr. Talal Al Ali, the support sector CEO acting assistant at MBRHE, and Eng. Mohamed Al Breiki, the executive director of sustainable development at Masdar City, during the WETEX exhibition.
“The new partnership aligns with Masdar City’s commitment to creating more sustainable cities. Housing plays a critical role in shaping our quality of life and our future. We’re honored to be working with the MBRHE to continue to address the housing needs of UAE nationals while ensuring that local housing also cares for the environment. We already develop the most sustainable buildings in the region, and we’re looking forward to sharing our expertise to help foster healthy, fulfilling, and sustainable communities.”
Mr. Talal Al Ali said that “The Memorandum of Understanding with Masdar City allows us to leverage their vast knowledge and experience in sustainable urban development. This partnership transcends beyond building houses, it’s about creating environmentally responsible homes that will enhance the well-being of UAE citizens.”
Under the agreement, Masdar City will share its expertise in sustainable development with MBRHE, focusing on passive and active design techniques aimed at reducing water and energy consumption and minimizing carbon emissions. MBRHE will incorporate these techniques into its residential projects, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability.
Masdar City will also assist MBRHE in selecting sustainable building materials and implementing best practices. This includes organizing training workshops for MBRHE’s experts, enhancing their capabilities in sustainable development and ensuring the long-term success of this initiative.
MBRHE remains committed to pioneering sustainable living solutions to meet the growing population demands in Dubai. This partnership with Masdar City is a testament to its commitment to crafting a sustainable future.
