Kizad backs World Future Energy Summit
Abu Dhabi, January 20, 2014
The Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) announced today its participation at the World Future Energy Summit 2014 (WFES) for the second year running.
Kizad will be exhibiting under the International Water Summit sector, from 20-22 January, which will run concurrent with other high profile events, including the Sustainable Living Expo, Project & Finance Village, GCC Utilities Platform and ECO waste.
CEO and managing director of Kizad, Engineer Khaled Salmeen attended the opening ceremony for the international summit calling it “a solid platform to discuss priority issues and safeguard our natural resources for generations to come”.
He also referred to the growing demand for water in arid regions and the need for sustainable solutions, global collaboration and innovations to tackle this challenge.
It’s also important for Kizad to be able to benchmark against best practices, in terms of other regional and international industrial zones on how they use their water resources efficiently. This benchmarking process is part of the IWS 2014 international case study sessions that will be presented by Japan, Singapore, USA and Europe, providing insight and practical solutions to challenges faced in the region that can be applied by local authorities to support improvement.
“Part of our responsibility to our next generation is to discuss certain difficult truths about how we consume natural resources. The WFES is an event that shows Abu Dhabi’s commitment to ingrain the importance of sustainability and keep it at the forefront of everybody’s minds”, commented Salmeen. – TradeArabia News Service
