2nd Annual The Arab Green Summit, organized by Market Solutions Events Management (MS Events), is set to take place on 6th – 7th June 2023 at the prestigious Palazzo Versace in Dubai, UAE. Sponsored by GBM, ESG Technology Partner, Turner and Townsend, Silver Sponsor Networking Partner Snowflake. With the UAE slated to host COP28, the country’s leaders have emerged as proactive champions addressing the urgent implications of climate change. The announcement of the Net-Zero initiative reflects the UAE’s commitment to implementing various programs to achieve its sustainability goals.
The MENA region has emerged as a driving force in the fight against climate change, undertaking numerous initiatives to support sustainability efforts. Striving to transition away from oil-based economies, MENA has witnessed a surge in investments towards sustainable development projects and alternative energy sources. Prominent examples such as NEOM, Masdar City, and the Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park stand as testament to the region’s unwavering dedication to sustainability.
At the 2023 edition of The Arab Green Summit we aim to continue our unwavering commitment to supporting the UAE’s initiatives in achieving the objectives of the Net-Zero 2050 initiative. Over the course of two days, this esteemed conference will bring together industry leaders, experts, and stakeholders on a common platform to engage in candid conversations about climate change and sustainability. Together, we will strive to find innovative solutions to the pressing challenges faced in the region.
