A newly established forum in Dubai will bring together international experts to discuss the city’s future investment in green technology and the environment.
The International Conclave on Data Analytics, Business Intelligence, Action Research and Cases in Power and Energy will take place from the 24 to 26 February at the Canadian University of Dubai.
Present at the meeting will be members of the Ministry of Environment and Water as well delegates from global power companies such as NTPC Ltd., an Indian-government owned company and one of the biggest power producers.
Discussions at the forum will revolve around topics such as environmental projects in Dubai, the city’s initiatives to phase out inefficient lighting, and how businesses can improve their LEED rating.
“For corporates everywhere, sustainability is no longer a ‘feel good’ issue, but a necessity to make them future-ready,” said Dr Ajay Mathur (pictured), director general of Bureau of Energy Efficiency in India.
“This conference will provide a forum for the sharing of lessons and experiences in adopting green practices, and stimulate the accelerated adoption of these practices.”
Wassim Adlouni, partner and board member at the Sustainability City in the UAE, said: “This is a very important conference for us and for Dubai. Partnering with the government, we have implemented many environment-saving solutions such as the use of solar panels, recycling of waste water, the reduction of emissions in construction, but we have much to learn.
“We hope to pass on some of our experiences and get ideas from other countries for the benefit of Dubai and the rest of the world.”
