A ‘mutually beneficial’ partnership: the Sustainability Internship Program builds students’ skillsets and enables companies to strategically invest in sustainability
Climate Interactive: Advancing MIT’s global change modeling legacy
The students of schools and universities in Abu Dhabi, UAE, want to work with the world leaders at COP21 to find a solution to the problem of Climate Change. They are educated and innovative young minds, encouraged by various initiatives of the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi over the past 17 years. This video shows the journey of the Environment Agency’s multi-pronged educational efforts and the results it has yielded in changing mindsets and bringing about a real impact.

The United States consumes more petroleum-based liquid fuel per capita than any other developed country - 30 percent more than the second-highest consumer (Canada) and 40 percent more than the third-highest consumer (Luxembourg). The majority of U.S. oil consumption — 70 percent — goes into the transportation sector.
In recent years, China׳s leaders have sought to coordinate official energy intensity reduction targets with new targets for carbon dioxide (CO2) intensity reduction. The Eleventh Five-Year Plan (2006–2010) included for the first time a binding target for energy intensity, while a binding target for CO2 intensity was included later ...
Using Monte Carlo Simulation, multiple scenarios of supply chain configurations, consumer transportation choices, urban density, packaging and item bundling are evaluated. Results show that online shopping is the most environmentally friendly option in a wide range of scenarios. However, as more consumers leverage traditional bri...
