Global efforts are off-track to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. To protect people, businesses and the planet from the impact of the climate crisis, we need decisive multi-stakeholder action, in line with the UN Secretary-General’s Acceleration Agenda. As Governments and non-state actors converge at COP28, the private sector plays a crucial role to cut emissions, accelerate a just transition to a green economy, and invest in adaptation and resilience for a liveable planet.
Join our community of global business leaders and problem solvers at COP28 in Dubai from 30 November -14 December to take action in the battle against climate change.
