Year of Sustainability

The UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has declared 2023 the Year of Sustainability.

Through activities and events throughout the year, the UAE will highlight its commitment to collaboration, innovation, education and community engagement as key drivers to achieving sustainability across every sphere.

The UAE will also showcase nationwide initiatives, programmes and practices that are helping deliver on the country’s sustainability goals, including Net Zero by 2050, and that will galvanise the entire community to continue increasing its efforts.


To be held at Expo City Dubai from 30 November – 12 December 2023, the 28th United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP28) will gather the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change parties to assess progress and unite efforts in tackling climate change.

COP28 will see the first-ever Global Stocktake – the culmination of a two-year exercise in measuring progress achieved by governments toward national climate action plans.

By ensuring the UAE event is a COP of inclusivity, ambition, and action, the UAE will strengthen its status among the key global players driving impactful climate change solutions.
