    The event is organized by ADSG_Comms, supported by EAD and in partnership with Dolphinenergy and Etihad.



    The Abu Dhabi Sustainable Business Leadership Forum 2021 will explore critical areas under the theme of Transitioning to the Future Today.

    Sustainability took a leap forward during 2019/20 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic; as we return to a post-pandemic world, the urgent need for transformational change on a worldwide scale is undeniable.

    In the UAE and worldwide, the public and, in particular, investors are increasingly prioritizing sustainability and demand that their portfolio companies provide detailed environmental, social, and governance information. Investors are demanding more transparency and action on climate-related risks. The ADSBLF21 will help support the momentum for the transition to the future today.
