RIYADH: Around 150 innovators are set to discuss ways to tackle present-day environmental challenges when they gather in London for the Saudi British Forum for Clean Technology on March 8.
Organized by the Saudi British Joint Business Council, the event will discuss ways in which technology will enable and accelerate progress towards reaching zero emissions, revealed the executive director of the SBJBC, Chris Innes-Hopkins.
Topics to be addressed at the forum will include reducing carbon emissions and developing waste management and water conservation.
Saudi and British companies will also deliberate on creating clean technology in strategic sectors, as well as improving clean energy and battery technologies.
