Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) is the largest sustainability gathering in the Middle East, held annually each January. The event is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the major social, economic and environmental trends shaping the world’s sustainable development, and to empowering the global community to realise viable and effective strategies to mitigate climate change and address the energy and sustainability challenges of the future.
The partnership that we have established between the United States and Abu Dhabi around renewable energy and climate change and sustainable development that takes advantage of human capital, is one of the most important partnerships for the future that we could be pursuing.Hillary Rodham Clinton Former Secretary of State of the United States of America
We are here to build a new energy future… a future that harnesses the power of technology and innovation in the service of people and the planet. Sustainable energy for all is within our reach.Ban Ki-moon Secretary-general, United Nations
Abu Dhabi’s bold vision for sustainable energy is transforming this nation and inspiring our region. No one can predict the future, but this much is true: Energy requirements will play a vital role in determining it.H.M. Queen Rania Al Abdullah Queen of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week is a testament to the commitment of the United Arab Emirates to sustainable development and a new diversified, low carbon economy. Similar to how Mexico is leading the way as a developing country, the UAE was in fact the first country in the Middle East to set renewable energy targets at a time when there was widespread doubt about renewable energy’s viability and value.Enrique Pena Nieto President of Mexico
