To be held at Abu Dhabi Energy Center, the forum will witness several experts foster dialogue relevant to accelerating decarbonisation efforts
Ahead of the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), there’s an all-new forum coming to Abu Dhabi.
The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), in partnership with ADNOC and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar), has announced the launch of the UAE Climate Tech forum.
Taking place from 10-11 May 2023 at Abu Dhabi Energy Center, the forum is key to the UAE Year of Sustainability. The same is aimed to drive momentum to accelerate efforts to reduce emissions by at least 43 per cent 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 to foster dialogue and collaboration on disruptive innovations and economic opportunities in accelerating decarbonisation across all sectors.

UAE Climate Tech builds on the country’s legacy of climate leadership and practical and progressive climate solutions. The UAE has been a major investor in climate action and its approach is underpinned by ADNOC’S AED55 billion-plus allocation to low-carbon solutions, new energies and decarbonisation technologies. On its part, Masdar is targeting 100 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy capacity by 2030.
The event will also highlight the UAE’s efforts in spearheading technology adoption and development to accelerate decarbonisation and create the green industries of the future including climate-critical sectors like renewables, hydrogen, climate-smart agriculture and STEM education.
