Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial center in Abu Dhabi, will organize the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Forum (ADSFF) on 19th January 2023 as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW).

The fifth edition of ADSFF will gather top global investors, government leaders, regulators, and financial institutions to discuss areas of collaboration to increase and manage the flow of capital towards sustainable investments.

According to the statement, “This one-day flagship event will cover an array of topics including the preparations underway for the upcoming COP28 in the UAE, transforming business strategies to reach climate targets, and innovation in sustainable financial products.”

“With COP28 to be held in the UAE this year, the financial industry is increasingly shifting its focus towards products and services in green finance supported by enabling regulations and policies. As a regulator, we can confidently say that the role of regulatory frameworks in fostering the growth of sustainable finance is becoming more important by the day in directly or indirectly increasing the flow of capital to projects and investments that are critical to meeting the global net zero greenhouse gas emissions targets.”

“ADGM is supporting the accelerated growth of a sustainable finance ecosystem by proposing to introduce a comprehensive regulatory framework covering sustainability-orientated investment funds, managed portfolios, and bonds as well as a framework on environmental disclosures by ADGM companies. Powered by ADGM, ADSFF brings together international leaders and experts to discuss how we can speed progress towards a sustainable future by supporting the allocation of capital to economic activities that help the achievement of net zero emissions targets, both locally and globally,” Mr. Givanakis added.
