Masdar City is not only committed to building one of the most sustainable cities in the world, and one that is an attractive place to live, but also to achieving this in a commercially viable manner. Through the planning, designing, developing and operating of Masdar City, valuable knowledge and know-how has been developed.
What's more, as the city grows, Masdar City continues to develop new insights and innovations in the areas of green building materials and supply chain, sustainable systems integration, municipality and utility systems management, master planning, building design guidelines and building management systems optimisation.
Masdar Institue Campus, Masdar City As such, Masdar City is consciously identifying and logging this knowledge, both for use in developing each future stage of the city, but – importantly – to enable the city to share this knowledge with Abu Dhabi, the region and the world as a whole. The urgency to develop the city in a commercially viable manner is not solely to deliver a return on investment to its shareholder, but – significantly – to ensure that lessons learned here are relevant to, and can be shared with and implemented by other urban communities and developments around the world.
More specifically, Masdar City has developed a bouquet of services across the field of sustainable urban development that can help organisation more quickly, more affordably and more effectively achieve their sustainability goals. These services address both hard and soft infrastructure challenges, and are defined by their ability to benefit not only employees, communities and the planet, but the bottom line as well.
