Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week

The Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), scheduled to be held from January 18-21, will be held online instead of an on-ground event.

The 2020 edition of ADSW hosted around 45,000 attendees from 170 countries, with more than 500 high-level speakers from around the world.

All the events that are part of the 2021 event, including the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Assembly whose date is yet to be scheduled, the ADSW Summit hosted by Masdar on January 19 and the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Forum scheduled for January 20, will all be held online.

While IRENA and Finance Forum are by-invitation only events, the summit requires prior registration. The summit will include speeches, presentations and panel debates focussed on making a green recovery.

“Holding ADSW in a virtual format in 2021 will allow us to continue to drive the sustainability agenda forward in the line with the vision of the UAE, ensuring that the world’s attention remains focussed on the actions required to achieve a healthier, safer and more sustainable future for all,” said Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and chairman of Masdar.
