Climate change

Due to the desert nature of Saudi Arabia, it is severely affected by climate change.  This matter is taken into account by the government in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where the Saudi Green Initiative was adopted within the 2030 vision. Therefore, King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences has been working to support these efforts throughout the previous and new Strategic Plans, where sustainability is explicitly stated as part of the 9th Strategic Goal of the previous strategic plan and the 4th Strategic Goal of the new Strategic plan 2022-2027. 

Moreover, in an effort to reduce the university’s carbon footprint and gas emissions, the university provides regular, free-of-charge transportation in zero-emission trolleybuses. These vehicles are operated within the campus to transport students, faculty, and staff to and from colleges and other University facilities.
