Etihad Mangrove Forest

We’re determined to do our part for the world and help to protect the planet. That’s why we’ve launched the Etihad Mangrove Forest. Adopt a mangrove today and help make a difference.

What is the Etihad Mangrove Forest?

Launched in February 2022, the Etihad Mangrove Forest is focused on biodiversity, wildlife and environmental protection.

It aims to bring our guests into our sustainability story by giving you the opportunity to plant, adopt and discover mangroves’ important ecological role.

Where is the Etihad Mangrove Forest?

The Etihad Mangrove Forest is located on Jubail Island in Abu Dhabi. By planting mangroves in this large-scale natural forest, we’re able to maximise the absorption of CO2 without having to use additional water or fertiliser – even with the UAE’s harsh climate.

Why mangroves?

Abu Dhabi is our home, but it’s also home to mangroves. We’re passionate about protecting our home and preserving its rich environment, so, it was a natural choice to establish the Etihad Mangrove Forest.

Plus, mangroves are one of the biggest defences against global warming since they absorb a lot of carbon – up to 10 times more than a tropical forest!

Mangroves also help to protect the coastline and marine life as well as providing a home to millions of sea creatures, animals and birds.

We’re in it for the long run

The Etihad Mangrove Forest is a coordinated effort between Etihad, Jubail Island, Eco Matcher, The Storey Group, EMEG and the Environmental Agency of Abu Dhabi. We’re all working together to ensure the proper planting, maintenance and survivability of the mangroves.

We don’t plant and forget – we’re in it for the long run. Because together, the mangroves we plant and care for will increase biodiversity, make our coasts safer and help fight climate change.
