End of conference

The case for sustainable energy generation, distribution and use has never been so compelling. Diversification of supply, policy on cutting carbon emissions, reducing business costs, consumer demand for high environmental standards; these are all driving government, businesses, organisations and householders in the same direction. The availability of innovative, affordable technologies is opening up a myriad of opportunities for action.

Successful outcomes rely on the sharing of ideas, innovation and good practice, so that the energy production, distribution and use community can learn from each other and move forward effectively to meet sustainability challenges. This conference will explore common technical challenges, opportunities and strategies through sharing international good practice. Whatever your industry sector, the size and nature of your organisation, the Middle East Sustainability Forum will help you drive forward these transformation efforts. The topics covered are:

  • Sustainability and climate change: processes and policies driving sustainability in a lower carbon world
  • Mitigating climate change: providing insight into the business case for investing in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects
  • Technology and innovation: showcasing new tools and innovative technologies
  • Processes aimed at resource management and prevention
  • Processes aimed at driving energy efficiency best practice
  • Hear about regional and international opportunities and challenges from industry leaders
