Zayed Sustainability Prize

The Zayed Sustainability Prize is the UAE’s pioneering global award for sustainability, recognising small and medium sized enterprises, non-profit organisations and global high schools for their innovative solutions in sustainable and humanitarian development.
Established in 2008, the Zayed Sustainability Prize was created to honour the legacy of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s commitment to sustainability. Over the past 12 years, the Prize has awarded 86 winners. Collectively, they have, directly and indirectly, positively impacted the lives of over 335 million people through the implementation of sustainable solutions around the world. In this time, the Prize has also sought to encourage and inspire others to adopt sustainable and human development practices around the world.
The Prize recognises sustainability areas with categories in Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Schools. A core essence of the Prize has been its understanding of the multi-faceted nature of the challenges the world faces, in order to achieve a sustainable future. This is why the Zayed Sustainability Prize’s categories are aligned with many of the goals set forth in the UN SDGs and the UAE government’s National Agenda 2021.
