The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO) are organising the eighth World Green Economy Summit (WGES)

According to the Dubai Media Office, the summit will be held at Dubai World Trade Centre, on September 28 and 29.

It will run concurrently with the 24th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition and Dubai Solar Show, organised by DEWA from September 27 to 29.

The summit annually attracts several local and international stakeholders, heads of state and government leaders, international speakers, officials, representatives of government institutions, experts and academics.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, MD & CEO of DEWA and Chairman of the World Green Economy Summit said, “The WGES represents the UAE and Dubai’s efforts to strengthen regional and international cooperation, achieve climate neutrality and accelerate the transition to a green economy. This aims to ensure economic growth, and sustainability of natural and environmental resources.”

He added, “The summit aims to create an effective change and fulfill the climate change commitment, in line with the the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) that the UAE will host at Expo City Dubai in 2023.”

The UAE has taken key initiatives to usher in a cleaner, more sustainable future. Besides housing the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) headquarters, it remains the first country in the region to sign and ratify the Paris Agreement.

Last year, it announced a new Net Zero 2050 Strategic Initiative to reduce carbon emissions and plans for 50 per cent of its energy to come from renewable sources by 2050. The 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28) will be held at Expo City Dubai in November 2023.
