Eng Ahmed, CEO of NPCC, said: “We congratulate our leadership and the UAE for being selected to host COP28 in 2023, the largest global conference of heads of state and government on climate and environmental issues. At NPCC, we are committed to supporting the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative and we will continue to focus on strengthening our energy transition strategies across our operations. Hosting COP28 in Abu Dhabi is a strong opportunity to highlight our nation’s successful efforts in decarbonisation and energy sector diversification, and an opportunity for all stakeholders to work together for positive climate action.”

Eng Yasser Zaghloul, Group CEO of NMDC, said: “The UNFCCC’s selection of the UAE as the host of COP28 is a great testament to the vision of our leadership and their clear direction set by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, our Founding Father, to build a better and more sustainable future. The UAE is committed to taking positive climate change action and drives a robust energy transition strategy for a decarbonized future. This calls for concerted efforts by all governments and organisations to take step up measures to reduce carbon emissions through technologies such as carbon capture and tapping the potential of hydrogen and gas power. As a national champion company committed to the nation’s goals, NMDC is committed to the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative through open dialogue and sharing knowledge and best practices.”
