UAE Team ADQ is pleased to announce that it has signed the “UCI Climate Action Charter”.

UAE Team ADQ, the Women’s World Tour Team is pleased to announce that it has signed the “UCI Climate Action Charter”- a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices within the cycling industry.

With this announcement, UAE Team ADQ is proud to be among eighty cycling stakeholders globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.

UCI WorldTeams, UCI Women’s WorldTeams, National Federations and major event organisers including Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), RCS Sports and Flanders Classics are among cycling’s stakeholders that have also signed the Charter. The UCI Climate Action Charter and its eight commitments are published on the UCI website.

The UCI Charter is based on eight points, implementing the Paris climate agreement, aiming to reduce emissions from the use of fossil coal, between now and 2030, and limiting global warming to 1,5 degrees. The Organization said the next five years will be crucial in accelerating the transformations necessary for sustainable climate development.

One of the cornerstones of this action will be the systematic measurement of the climate footprint of the events on the UCI calendar. They will activate all communication channels to raise awareness on the topic among the general public worldwide.

Melissa Moncada, Head of UAE Team ADQ, explained, “UAE Team ADQ aims to be a driving force to address the challenges that our industry and our world need to tackle. The Team’s commitment to sustainability for a better future is part of our DNA, supporting sustainable development and creating a positive impact through cycling and the cycling mindset. For that reason, we are proud to announce our pledge to join the UCI Climate Action Charter, in which we support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development working towards achieving our Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)”.
