Al Tayer said: “This year’s Summit is being held even as the Middle East’s presence continues to grow the global sustainability agenda through effective strategies to adapt to climate change and combat its adverse effects.

"Egypt and the UAE are preparing to host the UN Climate Change Conference COP27 and COP28 in 2022 and 2023 respectively. The Arab world is central to global activities that aim to enhance climate action and achieve global targets.

"The World Green Economy Summit will contribute to strengthening cooperation among partners and stakeholders, as well as set the ideal environment for holding these two global events."

This year’s Summit will highlight the UAE’s commitment to supporting global efforts to accelerate the transition towards a green economy in line with the directives of our wise leadership.

The Summit will be a platform to share the UAE’s leading experience in tackling climate change, as well as the various national strategies and initiatives to achieve net-zero and consolidate the foundations of a low-carbon economy.

These strategies include the UAE Net Zero 2050, the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of Dubai’s total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.
