Working towards clean energy supplies in the UAE

  • Article

In this podcast, we explore the UAE’s energy transition journey. We look at TAQA, the UAE’s biggest utility company, which has ambitions to reduce energy emissions whilst also increasing the share of renewable energy they deploy globally.

As part of its transition, TAQA issued its first green bond in early 2023 to help fund its various green projects, with the help of HSBC as Joint Lead Manager and Bookrunner. HSBC also acted as Joint Green Structurer on TAQA’s newly established Green Finance Framework.

Guests Stephen Ridlington, CFO, TAQA, and Ahmed Hashem, Head of Coverage, Abu Dhabi, Global Banking & Markets, HSBC, join host Fatima Galadari, Vice President, Abu Dhabi Government Coverage, Global Banking & Markets, HSBC, for this conversation.
