Kuwait is committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2050 in the oil and gas sector, the country’s foreign minister Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah has affirmed.

The country aims to achieve carbon neutrality in other sectors by 2060.

The country has executed many projects to preserve the environment and reduce emissions, the Kuwaiti minister told Kuwait News Agency on the sidelines of the COP27 and the Middle East Green Initiative summits currently held in Egypt.

The minister stressed that Kuwait sticks to all the commitments it made since the launching of the first climate conference in the Brazilian capital in 1992 all the way to the Paris conference in 2015.

The Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, representative of Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, took part in the two summits and addressed messages, highlighting Kuwait’s efforts on reducing carbon emissions, Sheikh Salem added.

Last year, the UAE had announced a new Net Zero 2050 Strategic Initiative to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
