WORLD ecoConstruct, the pioneering ‘green’ construction industry event will implement a carbon offsetting programme for its inaugural edition at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

The initiative will result in 391 tonnes of CO2 being offset to support the installation of a locally based waste heat recovery unit project.

The CO2 emissions of the four-day event, which opens on 22 April and concludes on 25 April, have been calculated after an intensive audit of all activities that contribute to increasing carbon footprint, from the amount of expected visitors to pass through the exhibition doors, to the 200 workers involved in the construction and dismantling of the event for three days prior to and after the show.

Tsitsi Lynn Makuni, Exhibition Director of WORLD ecoConstruct, said: “One of the key objectives of WORLD ecoConstruct is to help create and deliver strategies that focus on the sustainable development of the built environment that bring about a low carbon future.

“With this in mind, it is a natural progression for the first edition of WORLD ecoConstruct to essentially replace the carbon being utilised throughout the show. We look forward to making the carbon offsetting programme a regular feature for WORLD ecoConstruct for years to come.”

Carbon offsetting is the process whereby the reduction of greenhouse gasses or carbon dioxide in one location is made in order to compensate for, or to offset an emission made elsewhere.

Khaled Alsafi Al Hashmi Chief Operating Officer at ADNEC said: “Being an active player in the exhibition industry within the UAE, ADNEC recognises the importance of hosting events with carbon offsetting programmes. Initiatives such as this one at WORLD ecoConstruct will increase the overall awareness level of the carbon emissions of the exhibitions industry.

WORLD ecoConstruct, a collaboration between Abu Dhabi’s two leading building and construction events, CityBuild and Arabian Construction Week, is the region’s only dedicated exhibition focusing on sustainable design and construction for the built environment.

Co-located with the 6th edition of Cityscape Abu Dhabi, the event provides a crucial sourcing and knowledge platform for the billions of dollars committed to major projects within Abu Dhabi and the surrounding region. Together the events attract more than 30,000 visitors.

WORLD ecoConstruct is supported by Foundation Partner, the Department of Municipal Affairs, Sustainable Knowledge Partner Masdar City, Strategic Partner Emirates Green Building Council, Principal Sponsor Emirates Steel, Platinum Sponsor Rajhi Steel, Gold & Future Build Sponsor BASF and is endorsed by the UAE Business Council for Sustainable Development.
