Bahrain unveils its National Energy Strategy and steps up commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 206030.11.2023 15:53:48 CET | Press release

MANAMA, Bahrain, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bahrain today unveiled its National Energy Strategy: a clear, credible, and responsible pathway to reaching the climate targets the Kingdom pledged to achieve at COP26, namely a 30 percent reduction in emissions by 2035 on the road to net-zero emissions by 2060.
