Discover the Stories of Three Zayed Sustainability Prize Finalists Fighting to Transform the World

Launched in 2008 to honor the legacy of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Zayed Sustainability Prize is set to announce this year’s winners during the COP28 climate conference. With categories spanning health, food, energy, water, climate action, and high schools, the competition showcases 33 finalists from across the globe, competing for a share of the $3.6 million prize money. Let’s delve into the stories of three remarkable nominees driving positive change.

 ChildLife Foundation (Pakistan)

Pakistan’s ChildLife Foundation, a leading non-profit organization, operates state-of-the-art children’s emergency rooms and telemedicine centers in underserved areas. Since its establishment in 2010, the foundation has delivered critical care to over 5.6 million children. Dr. Ahson Rabbani, CEO, highlights the impact of improving emergency room standards on reducing child mortality rates. The foundation’s extensive hospital network, incorporating innovative telemedicine solutions, serves around 1.5 million children annually, contributing to the UN’s goal of zero child deaths by 2030.

CarbonCure (Canada): Sustainability Prize

Canada-based CarbonCure specializes in carbon removal technologies, transforming carbon dioxide into concrete. Over the past year, the company has successfully removed 126,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from the atmosphere. Robert Niven, CEO and founder, envisions a construction industry with a significantly reduced carbon footprint. CarbonCure aims to shift mindsets toward more environmentally friendly practices and has become a key player in combating climate change.

In the pursuit of sustainability, these finalists exemplify innovation and dedication to positive global impact. The Zayed Sustainability Prize continues its mission to recognize and reward projects shaping a better future for humanity and the planet.
