#SaudiArabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has announced the “Saudi Arabia Green Initiative” and the “Middle East Green Initiative” that will chart the Kingdom and the region's direction in protecting lands and nature.

“As a leading global oil producer, we are fully aware of our share of responsibility in advancing the fight against the #climatecrisis,” #SaudiArabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman says during the announcement of the green initiatives.

The #SaudiGreenInitiative will work to reduce carbon emissions by more than 4% of global contributions through an ambitious program that will generate 50% of the Kingdom’s energy from renewables by 2030, according to #SaudiArabia's Crown Prince.

"We reject the false choice between preserving the economy and protecting the environment," says #SaudiArabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as he announces two green initiatives to tackle the global #climatecrisis.
