by Madaline Dunn

The Sustainability Forum Middle East (SFME) has announced the launch of a high-level roundtable discussion titled “Green Mobility and the Growth of MENA’s EV Market.”

The event, organised in partnership with First Motors and Infracorp, is set to take place in Bahrain on March 4.

It marks the first session in the Forum’s 2024 series focusing on carbon neutrality in the MENA region.

In conjunction with the roundtable, Infracorp, the Forum’s lead partner and venue partner for the roundtable, will sign a partnership agreement with Solar One to operate an electric vehicle charging station in Bahrain Harbour.

The session will be attended by experts in transportation and sustainability from the region who will come together to discuss decarbonising the sector and the role of EVs in achieving carbon neutrality.

Specifically, discussions will centre on the global challenge posed by transportation sector emissions and regional efforts to promote sustainable mobility solutions.

EV technology, charging infrastructure and regulatory frameworks will also be explored.

The roundtable session will feature representatives from institutions, including Abdulaziz Tawfeeqi, Director of Development at Infracorp.

A session will also be moderated by Kal Subramanian, Head of Markets at KPMG.

The Forum is supported by a range of partners, including ABC Bank and Infracorp as lead partners, strategic partners like Tamkeen, Bapco Energies and Standard Chartered Bank, as well as Forum partners such as APM Terminals Bahrain, ASRY, Zubi and Partners, the Bahrain Ship Repairing and Engineering Company (BASREC), and the American Chamber of Commerce in Bahrain.

Gulf Air Group serves as the official carrier, and media partners include Asharq Business with Bloomberg, BFT Media and OGN.
