ABU DHABI, 16th May, 2019 (WAM) — Masdar, the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, has honoured the sponsors and partners of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, ADSW, 2019.
Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar, paid tribute to the organisations that partnered with and sponsored this year’s ADSW, which is held annually in January.
“Each of us shares the same passion to deliver on the sustainability objectives of the UAE and to uphold the vision of our nation’s Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed to convert aspirations into concrete decision-making, to transform innovative thinking into progress on the ground and to forge a better and more sustainable way of life for future generations,” Al Ramahi said during his speech at Masdar’s suhoor reception.
“Thanks to the vision of the UAE leadership and with your unwavering support, ADSW has successfully positioned itself at the heart of sustainability and clean energy. It has helped to give others the confidence to announce bold targets, to invest, and to engage the wider community in addressing our shared sustainability challenges, not only business and government decision-makers, but also our future sustainability leaders.”
ADSW brings together policymakers, industry specialists, technology pioneers, future sustainability leaders and members of the local community to shape the global sustainability agenda.
