Save the Date: Invitation to a World Energy Congress Side Event

 Sustainable Finance and Carbon Markets: new opportunities for the GCC?

10am, 12th September 2019

We are pleased to invite you to join this high-level World Energy Congress side event and dialogue on the regional potential of sustainable finance and carbon markets.

The rapid development of renewable energies and the increasing efforts in energy efficiency and carbon reduction projects create opportunities for market players to obtain and trade in innovative forms of financing, including carbon credits and/or clean energy certificates. These new tools form part of a complementary suite of financing instruments to foster the energy transition and help address climate change.

Our event will explore the status of sustainable finance, carbon pricing and carbon market instruments in the region and will showcase examples of international institutions, countries and companies. It aims to facilitate the start of a regional dialogue amongst key stakeholders. Event participants are expected to include Ministers, high level representatives from governments, international organizations, civil society organisations and CEOs.

A more detailed programme will be sent out ahead of the Side Event.

Participation at the Side Event is cost-free but registration is required – please RSVP by 10th September 2019. Further details, including agenda, confirmed speakers and panellists are available online, click here.
