The Arab British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC) is thrilled to present "COP28 & Sustainable Development: Harnessing Innovation for a Sustainable Future - ABES2023 Introductory Forum." This pivotal event aims to spotlight innovative solutions geared towards accelerating the global transition towards a cleaner and sustainable future. These solutions are not only crucial for the upcoming COP28 conference but also for reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. Our esteemed speakers will delve into the symbiotic relationship between the COP28 objectives and sustainable economic development.

In collaboration with the UK Department for Business & Trade (DBT) and MWAN, and co-organised by Kantar Advisory Partners, this event is made even more impactful thanks to the support of our esteemed members—Zef Concepts & Phyla Earth, Sustain:able, and Floras, and the participation of Biofuel Evolution.

We are excited to welcome a senior delegation from the Saudi Government, representing the Saudi National Centre for Waste Management (MWAN). The delegation will provide exclusive insights into Saudi Arabia's forthcoming initiatives and strategies in waste management. Our speakers will also focus on creative, tailored solutions that are essential for economic development and sustainability, especially as we look ahead to COP28.

This forum is one event in a series leading up to the 3rd Arab British Economic Summit 2023, which will take place on November 20th in London.

Mark your calendar for an opportunity to engage in valuable business networking and gain insights that promise to be eye-opening, stimulating and actionable.
