Dubai launches Green Deal energy-saving campaign


Dubai residents are to be offered financial incentives to buy and sell energy-saving products for their homes, officials announced on Tuesday.

It is part of a larger drive to dramatically reduce energy use across the emirate – which has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world.
