ADNOC Named UAE’s Most Valuable Brand for Second Consecutive Year

Brand value increases 28.6% in 2019, the fastest growth rate in MENA region

Group CEO H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber ranked #1 in MENA region for brand stewardship

$11.39 billion 2020 brand valuation pushes ADNOC into top ten O&G brands globally



ADNOC’s $11.39 billion (41.83 billion AED) 2020 brand value, a 28.6% increase over the previous year and a 145% increase since the launch of its transformation strategy in 2017, makes it the fastest-growing brand in the Middle East for 2020 and the first UAE brand to surpass $10 billion in value.

For the first time, ADNOC also ranks among the world’s top ten most valuable oil and gas brands and Group CEO H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber received the highest ranking among both MENA region CEOs and national oil company CEOs for brand stewardship and brand value creation.

Over the past 12 months, the most significant drivers of ADNOC’s brand value growth included consistency of best practice across the organization, a strong HSE track record and focus on safety, success facilitating local economic growth and FDI, and heightened domestic and international awareness through initiatives such as ADIPEC, ADNOC’s Formula 1 sponsorship, and the recent launch of the Group’s first-ever creative campaign “Energy for Life.”

Brand value is understood as the net economic benefit that a brand owner would achieve by licensing the brand in the open market. Brand strength is assessed through a balanced scorecard of factors, including marketing investment, stakeholder equity, and business performance, and is used to determine what proportion of a business’s revenue is contributed by the brand.
