What Impact Does Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 Have on Sustainable Development?

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a strong investor in a more sustainable future. A notable example? The policy paper Vision 2030, which in many ways talks about sustainability, including sustainable development.

As multi-faceted specialists focused on sustainable development and with a presence in Saudi Arabia, we at Alpin are excited to see Saudi Arabia’s ambitious goals become reality. In fact, for the past seven years, we’ve been working on helping the country achieve them.

Want to know more about Saudi Arabia’s vision and how it will be achieved? Let’s dive right in.

What are Saudi Arabia’s sustainability goals?

Here’s what it’s all about:

In its policy paper Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia sets out goals that will steer its policy-making over the next decades to enable a thriving society for its citizens. Saudi Arabia is positioning itself as a strategic business hub in the Islamic world and as a connector of three continents. Also, by creating this vision, the country is transforming into an investment powerhouse.

Now, the paper has three main themes (a vibrant society, a thriving economy, and an ambitious nation) with different subthemes.

Many of these subthemes reference sustainability in one way or another. For example, the paper talks about environmental sustainability, renewable energy, and protecting resources.

Plus, some subthemes make a reference to sustainability more indirectly. The paper mentions developing cities as a goal. A big part of this? Sustainable development and construction.

This is at the core of what we do at Alpin. We believe in delivering the most sustainable development solutions. For example: One of our projects is a 10-year build out- a key city development where we act as sustainability advisors on the client side.

So are we happy that more countries like Saudi Arabia are setting ambitious sustainability goals for their development and construction projects? You bet. And here’s how we help Saudi Arabia achieve these goals.

How will Saudi Arabia achieve Vision 2030?

Vision 2030 sets out ambitious goals. But how will Saudi Arabia achieve them?

Alpin has had a strong presence in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, since 2012 and during quite some time, we’ve been investing in the country’s long-term viability. We’re committed to helping Saudi Arabia achieve its goals and implement Vision 2030.

And one thing is clear:

Sustainable development will require an innovative approach.

At Alpin Innovation Labs, that’s exactly what we do. Our vision is to produce innovative practices that push the industry to become more sustainable.

To date, we’ve worked on some of the biggest projects in Saudi Arabia in various sectors (for example, engineering, banking, and finance). Some of our projects include the King Khalid International Airport, the main metro station in Riyadh designed by Zaha Hadid, the largest manufacturing plant in the country, as well as the first LEED platinum development and LEED EBOM projects in Saudi Arabia.

And as Saudi Arabia continues to develop cities to achieve its Vision 2030, we continue delivering innovative solutions to meet the needs of our clients.

What’s ahead for Vision 2030?

So, will Saudi Arabia achieve its ambitious sustainability goals by 2030?

We believe so. That’s why we’ve invested extensively in the country. And as Trusted Advisors, we continue using our team, advanced processes, and innovative technology to work on the Kingdom’s most innovative development projects.
