Event Overview

The Green Workplace Summit will focus on developing a healthy, energy-efficient and sustainable built environment for all.

Developing a green and circular economy that is responsive to national needs and consistent with the global direction of adapting to climate change is a strategic objective of the Sultanate of Oman’s Vision 2040 programme.

The buildings and buildings construction sectors combined, are responsible for 36% of global energy consumption and nearly 40% of total direct and indirect CO2 emissions. Eliminating all GHG emissions from built environment by 2050 is a must, to achieve goals set forth by the Paris climate agreement.

Organizations must take responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by adopting sustainable operating practices. These include, setting emission reduction targets, implementing energy and water efficiency programmes, overseeing recycling efforts and green building management programmes.

The Green Workplace Summit features interactive discussions on policies and solutions, that organizations can adopt to meet their commitment to fostering a sustainable environment. It will also provide the opportunity to share success stories and explore ways in which we can collectively respond to challenges.

The summit will bring together municipal authorities, environment pioneers, sustainability leaders, waste management experts and solution providers to discuss various strategies that will encourage implementation of eco-friendly practices. The summit will also offer unparalleled opportunities to network with peers and to explore new products, technologies and services.
