“SOHAR Net Zero Alliance signifies our steadfast commitment to spearheading Oman’s journey toward carbon neutrality. Together, we are setting a bold course towards a sustainable and carbon-free future, leaving no stone unturned.”

The alliance perfectly aligns with the Government of Oman’s ambitious goal of achieving ‘2050 Net Zero Commitment’ and will work towards securing ample volume of alternative energy, green power, green hydrogen, and the establishment of a third-party Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) facility and services at the SOHAR Port and Freezone.

The Alliance will also promote the exchange of  knowledge and expertise to ensure a unified voice in discussions with the government. Together, they will implement a shared plan to advance the transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral future.
