The emirate is striving to protect the environment while making the most of its natural resources. Abu Dhabi faces a confluence of environmental pressures that it is looking to address. This presents opportunities for investment and foreign partnerships in resource monitoring and management systems, green technology solutions, and best practice outreach and awareness campaigns. The EAD, established in 1996, is the main government entity tasked with regulating, promoting and setting policy for environmental protection and resource conservation. A number of government-linked organisations have launched environmental initiatives, including the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, the Abu Dhabi Water and Electric Company, and the Centre of Waste Management.
