    • ADGM-pioneered Declaration to ensure sustainability of UAE economy
    • 11 additional entities join the commitment to advancing UAE sustainability agenda

    11 additional private and public UAE entities signed the pioneering Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Declaration, signifying their joint commitment in promoting the health, sustainability and development of the UAE’s economy. Championed by Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the declaration underwent its inaugural round of signatories at last year’s inaugural ADSFF. The declaration’s saw the second round of signatories during the second edition of the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Finance Forum this year, held in conjunction with Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

    The objectives of the declaration include developing a collaborative framework that incorporates and fosters sustainable investments in Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the wider region. As part of the declaration, the UAE Insurance Authority, the Central Bank, the Securities and Commodities Authority and ADGM will play a facilitative role in working with the members to boost investment flows and support the various agreed provisions.

    The various signatories of the declaration have forged their commitment to furthering the UAE’s sustainability footprint and ensuring the longevity of the UAE’s economy. The authorities’ dedication to the adherence of sustainable practices being placed at the forefront of their respective strategic agendas was highlighted in the declaration. ADGM has initiated the establishment of the declaration as a physical representation of its commitment to collaborating with other prominent public and private entities in support of the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Green Agenda.

    The declaration also outlines the various entities’ efforts made towards creating a framework that fosters green investments in the UAE and facilitates a constructive dialogue regarding sustainable finance among the financial community. To actively encourage sustainable practices within the UAE’s financial sector, the signatories of the declaration will encourage educational opportunities, raise awareness, foster cooperation between relevant stakeholders and ensure regular meetings to assess and track their relative progress.
