Siemens and Diamond Developers, developers of Dubai’s Sustainable City, have inked a MoU to explore implementing new smart solutions, that support the building of low carbon, inclusive, safe, and resilient cities and communities across the world.

Dubai's Sustainable City is premised on a model for future cities, with an offering of social, environmental, and economic solutions. Sustainable at its core, the city grows its own food, produces renewable energy, recycles water and waste, encourages clean mobility. 

As Expo 2020 Dubai’s Infrastructure Digitalisation Partner, Siemens is helping create one of the most connected and sustainable World Expos in history.

Speaking about the partnership, chief executive officer of Diamond Developers, Faris Saeed, said: “This partnership with Siemens will help us to continue enhancing and improving our model of sustainable cities in the UAE and around the world, making our cities smarter and more efficient, and enhancing quality of life in general.”

Commenting on the agreement, chief executive officer of Siemens Smart Infrastructure in the Middle East, Franco Atassi, said: “Sustainable City in Dubai is already a model of efficiency, exporting more than a quarter of its solar power and avoiding tons of carbon emissions a year. Our approach of creating digitalised ecosystems from the point of power generation all the way to consumption can bolster energy efficiency and help protect the planet.”
