Integrating Energy and Climate Priorities in the Gulf

May 20, 2021
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

The UAE has carved out a unique niche as a major hydrocarbon-producing country that actively pursues a range of low-carbon policies and priorities -- from renewable energy to industrial projects for carbon capture and sequestration. Overseeing much of this work has been H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and Special Envoy for Climate, through his roles with state-owned oil company ADNOC, the Masdar initiative, and service in the cabinet.

As part of our 7th Annual Columbia Global Energy Summit, the Center on Global Energy Policy is pleased to host Minister Al Jaber for a fireside chat with David Sandalow, CGEP Inaugural Fellow, to examine how the Emirates are positioning themselves for a carbon-constrained future.
