Green transition hinges on multi-stakeholder collaboration ahead of GITEX Impact (16-20 Oct 2023) in Dubai
GITEX Impact 2023 promises to be the epicentre of seismic shifts in climate technology, providing a unified platform focused on sustainability and innovation, as the power of digitalisation accelerates the inexorable path towards decarbonisation. Headline exhibitors and partners spearheading the charge toward a net zero future include global logistics powerhouse DHL, which created the Era of Sustainable Logistics, a global platform to collaborate and shape the future towards green supply chains; ArcelorMittal Xcarb Innovation Fund, among the world’s largest steel producers committed to investing over $200m into tech start-ups to deliver decarbonised steel; and Lufthansa Group, the EU’s flagship airline driving global partnerships to deliver decarbonised air travel.
Organised by DWTC, GITEX Impact is strategically aligned with COP28, delivering transformative pledges accelerated via synergies leveraged at the heart of the world’s largest tech and start-up event, GITEX GLOBAL and Expand North Star, welcoming more than 7,000 exhibitors, 1,800 speakers, and 170,000- plus attendees from 176 countries.
The region’s tech catalyst for decarbonisation through digitalisation will also see the launch of the world’s first CSO Business Club featuring 300-plus global sustainable champions; the Leaders of Impact Summit; and the Global Sustainable Investment Forum. The debut five-day event runs alongside Future Urbanism Expo, the MENA’s premier event for sustainable urban development.
