Event Summary:

IPFA Middle East | The UAE’s Journey to Net Zero by 2050

Our in-person networking events are back! Join us for our first event of the year in Dubai where we will explore challenges, opportunities, and other areas of consideration to achieve the UAE’s journey to Net Zero by 2050. Our expert panel will comprise representatives from financial and private sector stakeholders.

The UAE Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative is a national drive to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, making the Emirates the first Middle East and North Africa (MENA) nation to do so. Following this announcement and other commitments made by the UAE at COP26, it will be necessary for all stakeholders (Federal, Emirate and private) to come together to deliver this.

The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) has been mandated to lead and coordinate efforts to achieve meeting Net Zero by 2050 and will ensure collaboration at national level to fulfil this objective. Meeting Net Zero will require a new range of policies affecting all levels of the economy.
