MoIAT, together with UNIDO, to Host Government and Industry Leaders in Decarbonizing Industry with Technology Program at COP28

Ministers from around the world as well as CEOs of global industry, energy and tech companies will participate in critical discussions on the future of sustainable industrial development.


Abu Dhabi-UAE. 28 November 2023 – The UAE Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) will host leaders from governments, industry, academia and international organizations as part of a series of high-level sessions at COP28, called the ‘Decarbonizing Industry with Technology Program’.
MoIAT’s Decarbonizing Industry with Technology Program is a collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) that will highlight and explore the opportunities, challenges, and success stories of the role of technology in achieving rapid, deep and sustained decarbonization.


Her Excellency Sarah Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, said: “We are bringing policymakers, technology players and executives from international energy and industrial corporations to the table to discuss practical roadmaps for climate action and decarbonizing industry. Through the ‘Decarbonizing Industry with Technology Program’, we aim to address some of the biggest questions facing industry today and offer a platform for partnerships that will result in concrete solutions.


Al Amiri added: “In line with UAE Net Zero by 2050, we are committed to doing all we can to drive positive change within industry, especially through the integration and utilization of advanced technology.”  
Focusing on the main enablers to effectively use technology to accelerate decarbonization, the program will focus on 3 main pillars: industrial decarbonization; accelerating the green energy transition; and innovation for climate action. The sessions will look at enablers including policy, regulations, technology, infrastructure, financing and partnerships.


Gerd Müller, Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), underscored decarbonization and green energy as the only way to achieve global development and prosperity, given the energy demand expect. 
He said: “COP28 will be about concrete solutions. Global energy demand is projected to increase by 50 to 70 percent by 2050. We know we must adopt a sustainable and inclusive model of economic growth, and ensure that the countries of the Global South have a real development perspective. We need a major course correction towards sustainable, inclusive industrialization, which requires transforming our entire industrial and energy systems. That is not only a challenge, but also an opportunity. We have the technologies and the knowledge to enable this transition. What we need are large investments in decarbonization, technology transfer and global solidarity.”
MoIAT will host 4 sessions in the Green Zone and 1 session in the Blue Zone focusing on topics such as technology transfer, R&D in climate action, decarbonization technologies and renewable energy.

Together, the sessions will delve into strategies and best practices for effective integration of renewable energy resources into existing energy systems, as well as how to promote cross-border R&D collaboration. One session will spotlight the critical role of low-emission hydrogen and key factors that facilitate its rapid production and application throughout the industrial value chain. Another will highlight the global effort, challenges, and opportunities related to the decarbonization of industries and explore potential collaboration opportunities to accelerate the transition towards sustainable and environmentally responsible practices.


The Blue Zone session involving key policymakers from around the world, will include a high-level panel on “Technology in Decarbonization”.
