DIFC Future Sustainability Forum

Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is gearing up to host the first ever Future Sustainability Forum to be held on October 4-5, at the Ritz-Carlton DIFC.

The event is set to bring together more than 1,000 industry leaders, including more than 50 speakers, representing 30 countries.

The two-day forum will explore how the financial sector can lead the charge in addressing climate change, promoting a just transition to a sustainable economy, and aligning efforts with the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

Globally, an estimated $3.3tn to $4.5tn is required annually to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This has called forth the sustainable debt market, which has been growing at pace driven by strong demand from investors and rising expectations for governments and organisations to deliver on their sustainability commitments.

Mobilising sustainable finance at the Future Sustainability Forum

Mohammad AlBlooshi, CEO, DIFC Innovation Hub, said: “We are thrilled to welcome over 1,000 global leaders to the inaugural Dubai and the Future Sustainability Forum. The Forum will focus on mobilising sustainable finance and innovation by connecting industry leaders, investors, tech disruptors, and policy makers, and help channel investment flows between the global north and global south, to accelerate climate action.

“Our mission is clear: We want to pioneer change, foster collaboration, and ensure that the finance sector stands at the forefront of sustainable practices.”

The forum’s agenda supports COP28’s four-pillar plan on fast-tracking the transition, fixing climate finance, focusing on adaptation to protect lives and livelihoods, and making COP28 fully inclusive.

Panel discussions and sessions include: Supporting corporates in embedding ESG within their organisations, Empowering companies to design their path to Net-Zero, Unlocking the potential of ESG-driven innovation, Fostering sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems and Transforming capital to drive the low carbon transition.

Th event has an impressive line-up of speakers and panelists who will participate in discussions.
