Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), the global platform for accelerating sustainable development hosted by Masdar, will hold the ADSW Summit virtually on Monday January 17, 2022, helping to set the global agenda for addressing the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges.

The ADSW Summit will bring together heads of state, policy makers, business leaders, and technology pioneers, to engage in dialogue and outline actions to achieve a net-zero future. The ADSW Summit will be broadcast online across different time zones to engage audiences across a broad range of geographies and markets.

Delivering global net zero commitments and the journey to the COP28 climate change conference will be key topics for driving discussions at the ADSW Summit. Sessions during the ADSW Summit will also include important sessions on the global energy transition, the future of transportation, the health energy nexus, carbon capture and storage, the blue economy, and the increasing importance of environmental, social, and governance criteria in making decisions.
