Working Lives UAE: Business leader

Hamza Kazim is a senior figure in the Masdar Institute, an Abu Dhabi organisation whose ambition is to advance the clean energy industry, not just in Abu Dhabi but "around the world".

He is certainly in the right place.

Powered by the sun, cooled by wind, the car-free environment of Masdar in Abu Dhabi is working to become the world's most sustainable low-carbon city.

"I was here when it was just sand and I've watched it grow in front of my eyes," says Hamza, who is Masdar's Head of Finance and Operations.

Designed by the London-based sustainable architecture practice, Foster + Partners, Masdar combines 21st Century engineering with traditional desert architecture to deliver zero-carbon comfort.
