Abu Dhabi / WAM
The first-ever Green Business Summit in Abu Dhabi will include a series of special panel discussions led by leading experts in international policy and sustainable development.
Key topics include an assessment of global sustainability initiatives, how governments can create a policy fram-ework that stimulates the transition to a greener future, and what it will take for the financial sector to encode sustainability into the capital markets.
The Green Business Summit, taking place at the Rosewood Hotel, Abu Dhabi on April 17, will focus on the effect of economic growth on the natural environment, particularly in MENA and how businesses and the private sector can align growth with sustainable development.
Vladimir Ryabinin, Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Ocea-nographic Commission and Assistant Director-General at UNESCO, and Polly Courtice, Director of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, will host the first panel discussion on operating within the “planetary playing field.”
