BlueGreen Water Technologies Presses for Action on Water at UN Climate Conference

President of Americas Jan Spin Joins Panel Discussions at COP28

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2023 / -- BlueGreen Water Technologies (BlueGreen), one of 30 climate-tech companies chosen to represent Israel at the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28 UAE), will present solutions to resolve our global water crisis during the two-week gathering in Dubai.

“BlueGreen is excited to join world leaders, climate experts, business leaders, and innovators at COP28,” said Jan Spin, President of Americas, BlueGreen. “There is no solution to our climate crisis without addressing our global water crisis. BlueGreen will be among those sharing that message and discussing solutions in Dubai.”

The COP28 UAE presidency has designated conserving and restoring freshwater ecosystems a key priority as part of its Water Agenda. A full day has been set aside to explore climate action across water, food, and agriculture, with another day focusing on nature, land use, and oceans.

“It is heartening to see water elevated on the agenda at COP28,” said Spin. “Water is our planet’s most precious natural resource and greatest natural carbon sink. We look forward to sharing solutions for protecting, restoring, and optimizing aquatic ecosystems, while removing carbon in the process.”

BlueGreen deploys its technologies across multiple continents to improve water quality and availability by remediating harmful algal blooms which, if left untreated, can result in severe health, environmental, and economic consequences. BlueGreen’s Net Blue™ methodology is the first nature-based climate solution to reduce algal blooms and sequester carbon at the same time.
COP28 UAE is taking place at Expo City Dubai from November 30 to December 12, 2023. The conference is expected to draw more than 70,000 participants, including world leaders and members of the private sector, civil society, financial institutions, and academia.
