The quest for a sustainable future has gained traction in the region with local and national initiatives and development plans such as the Dubai2040 Urban Master Plan, the UAE National Sequestration Pledge to plant 100 million mangroves by 2030, and Saudi Arabia’s campaign to plant 10 billion trees in the coming decades.

Goumbook has launched Trees Matter, a program designed to facilitate companies’ efforts to plant in the UAE and beyond, offering businesses and organizations the opportunity to contribute to reforestation and restoration of ecosystems, while meeting their sustainability goals through a range of local and global planting projects.

In order to better report and monitor progress, Goumbook has partnered with the United Nations Trillion Tree Campaign, with the National Sequestration Program by the UAE Ministry of Climate Change & Environment, and has joined the Global Mangrove Alliance.

Recently, Goumbook has launched a 2 yearlong project in the emirate of Ajman, transforming bare land into a thriving ecosystem: the first mangrove afforestation program in the MENA region, with the added benefit of including a visitor centre to boost Sustainable Tourism and a research centre to support Academia and Research. The project is led by Goumbook in partnership with Ajman Government.
