Bahrain is keen to formulate the future of global energy systems and renew the kingdom’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions by 30% by 2035, and reaching net zero by 2060.
This was affirmed by His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, HM the King’s Representative for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs, Board of Directors Chairman of Bapco Energies Group, as he took part in the opening of the Abu Dhabi International Progressive Energy Congress (ADIPEC 2023), hosted by the UAE, under the patronage of President His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan on October 2-5.
HH Shaikh Nasser asserted that the kingdom’s participation in ADIPEC 2023 is within the framework of its commitment to leading the global transformation in the energy fields, as well as in facing the challenges created by the current energy landscape, through a forward-looking strategy and a strong commitment to climate action, affirming Bahrain’s full readiness to play a proactive role in shaping the future of energy.
His Highness indicated that the importance of the ADIPEC 2023 emanates from the gathering of the whole world in the UAE to attend the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), where the values of humanity, ambition, and creativity will come together under the umbrella of the UAE, which, he said, is a great country in the region that calls for unity in delivering innovative, sustainable and real action on climate challenges.
Themed “Decarbonising. Faster. Together”, ADIPEC 2023 aims to bring together world energy leaders and mobilise their efforts in confronting the pressing challenges facing the global economy as a result of the current energy crisis.
