​Now in its sixth year, the World Green Economy Summit (WGES) has established itself among the most influential global gatherings on the green economy and sustainability agenda.

The event brings together governmental decision makers, international business leaders and world-renowned experts to discuss policies and roadmaps that can advance progress and promote investment.

The issues that WGES covers have never been more important. Global attention – and action – is on the increase, driven in part by the 2030 target for delivering the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The event’s plenary sessions and Green Talk speeches therefore feature some of the world’s most prominent experts and politicians, and attract a high-level, informed audience.

WGES goes beyond debate and dialogue, however, with a wide-ranging agenda that focuses on proactively galvanising action among industry stakeholders, encouraging partnerships and green investments, and showcasing innovative solutions to deliver change.

WGES is organised by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and World Green Economy Organisation, and in cooperation with the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and the United Nations Development Programme. The event is held in parallel with the annual ​Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX).
