Oman has set the year 2050 as the deadline for reaching carbon neutrality. A national plan has been approved to achieve this goal coupled with the establishment of Oman Sustainability Centre to oversee programmes to achieve net zero carbon emissions.
His Majesty the Sultan has also directed cooperation of all units of the administrative apparatus of the state with the departments concerned for the success of the efforts accorded for execution of the aforementioned national plan.

Speaking on the purpose of setting the year 2050 for achieving this goal, Al Shuaili said that setting the year 2050 for achievement of this goal is established on detailed studies and numerical models set by houses of expertise.
