APCO Worldwide has agreed to supply strategic communications and media relations services to the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company.

The independent firm will work with the United Arab Emirate’s climate envoy in interactions with the US on climate change.

Inked ahead of the White House’s summit on climate change (April 22 & 23), APCO’s contract runs through June.

The UAE's Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is among the 40 world leaders that president Joe Biden invited to take part in the summit that will be live-streamed to the public.

ADNOC produces 3.5M barrels of oil daily and employs more than 50K people in the UAE and beyond.

A self-proclaimed leader in environmental stewardship and sustainability, ADNOC has established a goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent and increase carbon capture, utilization and storage capacity 500 percent by 2030.

APCO founder/executive chairman Margery Kraus heads APCO's ADNOC team, which includes her chief of staff, Prateek Allapur and consultant Suzanne Smalley.
