Leading sustainability experts took part in the first of the Decarbonisation Roundtable Series held last month in Bahrain as part of the Sustainability Forum Middle East.

The roundtable – Carbon Markets – Accelerating and Funding the Road to Net-Zero – was aimed at helping regional audiences build a better understanding of carbon markets – regionally and worldwide, said the organisers.

The one-day event saw more than 100 leaders from the public and private sector come together for an in-depth look at the growth and practical workings of carbon markets globally and in the region and assess the benefits they can provide as another tool and pathway for helping businesses and countries in the Mena region to achieve their net-zero ambitions.

The high-level gathering of senior climate, finance and sustainability leaders was held under the patronage of Bahrain’s Supreme Council for Environment where they discussed the tools and pathways to support regional net-zero goals.
