Egypt endeavors to turn Suez Canal green
The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) is currently working to reduce the rising pollution rates and confront climate change.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi discussed with Rabie the SCA’s efforts to assume its international environmental responsibility, in addition to its decision to give incentives to transiting ships’ operators that follow environmentally friendly standards that contribute to reducing carbon emissions.
Egypt has in recent years increased its green projects. On Jan. 10, the Egyptian Ministry of Planning and Economic Development announced an increase in the share of green projects to 30% of the state investment plan, and a 50% share in 2024–25.
