20by2020 Initiative

In 2019, Mubadala Petroleum partnered with Zayed Sustainability Prize in the “20by2020” initiative, which is a UAE-led humanitarian initiative aiming to donate technologies and sustainable solutions, developed by previous winners and finalists of the Zayed Sustainability Prize, to vulnerable communities around the world. These transformative solutions are selected for their capacity to create an immediate impact on last-mile communities, including improving access to clean energy, clean water, sanitation, health services and addressing challenges in hunger, malnutrition, and agricultural productivity, all of which are goals outlined in the global Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030.

In light of Mubadala Petroleum’s commitment to contribute to the long-term, sustainable development of communities where we operate, this initiative enabled us to reach other vulnerable communities and bring real change to their lives. At the same time, with the “20by2020” initiative, we continue to globally share the values of the UAE’s Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed, while also supporting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Since its launch, the initiative has deployed technologies in the following countries: 

Location: Nepal (Bhojpur, Ilam, and Shankhuwasabha)
Solution: Solar Suitcases
Impact: 6,000 mothers and newborns will gain access to better healthcare in 5 years

Impact: 12,000 mothers and newborns will gain access to better healthcare in 5 years

Location: Jordan (Prince Hamzah Hospital - Amman)

The initiative will be deploying more solutions by the end of the year, although scheduling is dependent on the individual country-specific conditions during the ongoing global pandemic. Upcoming technology deployments include energy and water-related projects in Cambodia, Bangladesh, Madagascar, Indonesia, and Costa Rica as well as additional projects to be identified for 2021 deployment.
