Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW)

One of the world’s largest sustainability gatherings, Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the major social, economic and environmental trends shaping the world’s sustainable development.

The week brings together a unique fusion of policy makers, industry specialists, technology pioneers and the next generation of sustainability leaders. ADSW provides a platform for participants to track and showcase how their industry is adapting and evolving, and is a global catalyst for advancing the world’s sustainable development.

In 2018, ADSW welcomed more than 38,000 attendees representing 175 countries, a threefold increase compared with the inaugural World Future Energy Summit in 2008.

In a move to align more closely with the UAE Vision 2021 and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ADSW 2019 is widening its scope. The expanded pillars of ADSW now address a wider range of issues driving the sustainability agenda, including Energy and Climate Change, Water, the Future of Mobility, Space, Biotechnology, Tech for Good, Youth and Digitalisation.

To be held under the theme titled ‘Industry Convergence: Accelerating Sustainable Development’, ADSW 2019 will explore how industries are adapting to the digital transformation under way in the global economy, and the new opportunities it is presenting to address global sustainability challenges.
