The City

Masdar City is one of the world’s most sustainable urban communities, a low-carbon development made up of a rapidly growing clean-tech cluster, business free zone and residential neighbourhood with restaurants, shops and public green spaces.

Masdar’s philosophy of urban development is based on the three pillars of economic, social and environmental sustainability. Masdar City is a ‘greenprint’ for the sustainable development of cities through the application of real-world solutions in energy and water efficiency, mobility and the reduction of waste.

Masdar City is open to the public and welcomes tourists, residents, students, academics, entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors to its collaborative environment, which encourages people to live, work and play sustainably.
