UAE Climate Tech: Transforming, Decarbonising and Future-proofing for Net Zero
The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), in partnership with ADNOC and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar), has announced the UAE CLIMATE TECH.
The first-of-its-kind forum will take place on May 10th and 11th, 2023, at the Abu Dhabi Energy Center.
To be held during the UAE Year of Sustainability, the forum will drive momentum to accelerate efforts to reduce emissions by at least 43% by 2030 in line with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report.
More than 1,000 global policymakers, CEOs, experts, academics, technology leaders, pioneering disruptors and investors will gather at the forum to foster dialogue and collaboration on disruptive innovations and economic opportunities in accelerating decarbonization across all sectors.
His Excellency Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and COP28 President-Designate, said: “The science behind climate change is crystal clear, as stated in the latest IPCC report.
"The world is losing the race to keep temperatures from rising 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
"We have a small window of opportunity to make a massive course correction and shift gears, and we must act now by delivering across the four key pillars of climate finance, human capital, policy and technology.
“Meeting the world’s fast-growing energy needs, while dramatically reducing emissions is one of the most complex challenges that humanity has ever faced.
"With technological advances at a tipping point, we must act with urgency to develop and deploy these innovations to drive low-carbon solutions and catalyze economic opportunities.
"To accomplish this, we need greater collaboration and UAE CLIMATE TECH offers a unique opportunity to convene industry leaders and policymakers to enable climate action that will transform, decarbonize, and future-proof for a net-zero world.”.
