The upcoming Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), a global initiative led by the UAE and its clean energy leader Masdar, will take place during the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28).
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President, and aligned with his commitment to advancing sustainability as a fundamental driver of the UAE’s economic and social advancement, ADSW will assume a crucial role in sustaining global climate efforts at COP28. It will facilitate meaningful and inclusive discussions among all international stakeholders, transforming commitments into tangible solutions for achieving a net-zero future.
Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Chairman of Masdar, and COP28 President-Designate, remarked, “As the UAE looks ahead to hosting COP28, it is essential that we leverage every available opportunity to accelerate an equitable and orderly transition to clean energy and to maintain the 1.5-degree goal.
Originally established by Masdar in 2008, Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) has evolved into a prominent global initiative that extends well beyond its initial duration. The special edition of ADSW during COP28 offers a vital platform for a broader community of key stakeholders to voice their perspectives and expedite an inclusive path to a net-zero future.”
