Shift Green

From Vision to Action


The Fourth Forum on Strategies for Transition to Green Economy will be held this year under the theme “From Vision to Action” with an aim to discuss the roadmap of the private sector to take a step forward from formulating visions to taking actions with regard to climate change and its impact.

The forum is held within the framework of the national efforts being exerted by the Egyptian government and development partners under directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to give priority to projects and programs for shifting to green economy, supporting climate action, and promoting development partnerships among the private sector as well as international and regional development institutions in order to achieve green and sustainable growth.

The forum also falls with the context of getting companies and the parties concerned with green transition ready for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) which Egypt will host this year 2022.

Over the past eight years, Egypt has taken serious strides for shifting to green economy; including the launch of a national strategy for green economy, increase of the percentage of green investments in the public budget, and issuance of green bonds so that Egypt became the first country in the Middle East and North Africa to take this step. Moreover, Egypt expanded development partnerships and integrated environmental sustainability standards and implemented many projects in the field of green economic development, such as renewable energy, transportation, sustainable cities, recycling, and cleaner industrial production, alongside other measures aimed at cutting carbon emissions and pollution rates to provide a healthy and sustainable environment for citizens, reduce poverty and face the impact of climate change.

This year's forum aims to review the practices of the business community in Egypt with regard to climate issues and adaptation in light of local and global challenges and Egypt's Vision 2030.

The forum will also highlight the efforts of the private sector and its attempts to adopt sustainable practices, reduce emissions, rationalize resources consumption and improve manufacturing processes. In addition, the forum will address the role of business institutions and companies to support the national strategy for green economy, reduce the impact of CO2 emissions and climate change, and unite efforts to achieve the best results for shifting to green economy.

Moreover, the forum’s sessions, activities, and training workshops will focus on raising awareness about green economy and magnifying the benefit of climate finance, sustainable investment opportunities in addition to assessing social and environmental returns.

The forum will also shed light on green banking, the financial sector’s services and funding of green projects as well as mechanisms of advanced risk management and climate change issues. It will also address green job opportunities due to be available under green economy.

The forum will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs and innovators to show their green technology projects in order to share and exchange expertise, build effective partnerships, communicate with financing institutions, and benefit from the incentives and initiatives of government entities to serve climate action and green growth.
