Expo 2020 Dubai's Greener World Strategy
Updated on 10 January 2017

Expo 2020 Dubai will unveil details about its strategy for a cleaner, greener world and its centrepiece Sustainability Pavilion at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW).

The event running from 12th to 21st January will host the World Future Energy Summit and will focus on identifying and discussing solutions to the world’s energy and sustainability challenges. Expo 2020 Dubai plans to offer ADSW’s influential audience the opportunity to see for the first time its plans and vision for its Sustainability Pavilion, as well as the wider 4.38 square kilometre site in Dubai South, along with other details and content showing how innovation will be central to Expo’s ambition.

"Expo 2020 Dubai’s participation in the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week is a natural fit as it’s a strategic international event highlighting the progressive sustainability agenda of the UAE," said Marjan Faraidooni, VP of Legacy Impact and Development, Expo 2020 Dubai.

The construction of the Sustainability Pavilion and other installations are on course to be completed at least one year before Expo 2020, which opens to the public on the 20th October 2020.
