ADGM initiatives

Enacting positive change through the support of businesses and their growth


ADGM places the highest importance on enacting positive change through all its actions. The following initiatives support ADGM's overarching goal of becoming one of the world's leading financial centres while holding up values we hold most dear.

Sustainable finance

ADGM's thriving and sustainable finance hub supports capital formation, raising and deployment as well as the creation and issuance of products to achieve positive environmental, social and governance objectives. Sustainable finance plays a key role in the achievement of these objectives and is gradually changing entire economic sectors worldwide.


Gender equality

In 2019, ADGM launched a gender equality initiative to strengthen gender equality across all job functions and levels in the workplace. This is in line with the UAE Government’s Vision 2021 of enhancing gender equality in the workplace and the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development Goals. The initiative is based on three programmes: leading by example, working collaboratively and championing effective change.


UAE National Judge Programme

The ADGM Courts UAE National Judge Programme provides a comprehensive framework and pathway for outstanding Emirati lawyers to advance to the highest level in the legal and justice sector in the UAE.
