In 1990, the UAE emitted 32.6 tons of CO2 per person per year and in 2010, the figure dropped to 21.9 tons per person per year which is a positive sign for the region, that is why organizations are committed to reduce carbon emissions by decarbonizing the energy sources. The key players, which includes the government, utility providers, local partners and Industry leaders are determined to promote a sustainable ecosystem through alternative resources that emit far less carbon.

In this conversation we will be speaking to experts on their plan of action to support the decarbonization of the energy sources in the region. How are organizations in the UAE sharing their responsibilities by expanding the role of low-carbon technologies in the economy and investing in renewable energy and nuclear power? We will also further discuss how are they developing innovative programs in order to reshape and move towards more cleaner solutions to combat climate change concerns and reach their sustainability goals.

Join us to understand their strategies, solutions and initiatives on decarbonizing the energy sector.
