The Middle East is invested in this global trend, with the region’s national visions pushing for cities to be smarter and more sustainable in a post-COVID world. The region’s ambitions to globalize have attracted international financing and major footprint commitments from global companies, bringing with them key trends such as green financing and ESG+R.
